Introducing the Blind Thermal Contest The only Thermal Duration Contest that you can compete in from anywhere in the world! What is a Blind Thermal Contest? The contest is a RC thermal duration contest that anyone can compete in - regardless of where they live. The contest will be held between August 31st and September 3rd and scores are submitted on-line. To make it interesting, the format differs slightly from what you may be used to. What is the format? There are 3 classes: expert, sportsman and novice. Any class of plane may be used as long as it thermals and does not have a motor. Unlike traditional thermal contests, this Blind Thermal contest is done in reverse. Before you begin you will get a point total to shoot for. You will then have 5 flights and 5 landing scores that should add up to your point target. (Or as close as possible.) You then submit your 5 flight times and 5 landing scores on-line. In order to determine a winner, your scores for each flight will be compared against a ‘blind pilot.’ The pilot whose flight times and landings are the closest to the ‘blind’ pilot will be deemed the winner. In the remote chance of a tie, a computer will randomly select the winner. For more Information go to www.blindthermalcontest.com If you know of any one who would like to fly in this contest please forward this E-mail to them so it can reach world wide.
