In the absence of any day validation in the scoring system, a championship task is defined as one in which not fewer than 20% of the gliders in the class fly the minimum scoring distance as stated in the scoring formula. This distance may be varied by agreement with CIVL as the performance of gliders improves, but in any case, shall be a constant throughout a championship.

The overall results shall be computed from the sum of the daily scores for each competitor, the winner having the highest total score.

A score given to a competitor shall be expressed to the nearest whole number, 0.5 being rounded up.

All distances are measured via correctly controlled turn points and are rounded up to the next 0.5 km. All times are taken to hours, minutes and seconds.

A pilot who did not fly scores zero and is indicated DNF on the score sheet.

A pilot who is disqualified will be indicated DSQ on the score sheet.

A pilot who withdraws for illness or accident or is disqualified from the competition shall no longer be counted in the group or class for the purposes of scoring.

Deduction of penalty points shall be made after scoring is completed.

If a pilot’s score is for any reason negative, including penalties, his score for that task shall be taken as zero. Negative scores may not be carried forward.

Special handicap scoring systems may apply to certain competition and Fly-In events to encourage novice and intermediate pilots to participate and become involved in competitions.

Normalizing scores of separate groups

Normalization is needed in championships where a large entry makes it necessary to divide the pilots into approximately equal groups for the preliminary rounds of the competition. The groups fly the preliminary rounds at different sites or at different times. At the end of the preliminary rounds (“the cut”) the leader of each group is given the same score and the scores of the other pilots in each group are adjusted proportionately to that figure. The resulting scores are carried forward to the final rounds. The following safeguards must be applied when the final competition group is formed:

The score allotted to the group leaders, from which normalizations are calculated, should approximate to one-half of the value of the rounds flown.

The leaders of each group must enter the final rounds with equal scores.

If the groups of the preliminary rounds have not flown an equal number of tasks, scores must be averaged across the groups before applying the normalization factor to individual pilots’ scores.

Measurement of Distance.

The scoring distance is the sum of the legs of the course completed in the designated order.

An uncompleted leg is the length of that leg less the distance between the landing place and the next turn point, or goal, with the provision that any subtracted distance cannot be greater than that to the last correctly controlled turn point or start point.

Open Distance is measured from the start point to the landing point.

The Individual winner shall be the pilot gaining the highest total points in his class.

The Team winner shall be the team as defined in the scoring rules gaining the highest total points. Team scoring.

A team’s score shall be determined form the total scores of the top 3 pilots of a team calculated on each scoring day. Alternative formula may be proposed at the time of making the bid.

Point Awarding Procedure:

After a competition is completed, the organizers, or anyone appointed by the organizers, will submit a report to the competition committee. This report must include the defined in the HPAC Competition Sanction package:

The HPAC Competition Committee will review the final report and determine the meet “Level” and award points to pilots accordingly. Meet results should be published as soon as possible.

On the competition schedule for rating the meets in section B the following change will be made, “one pilot must make goal”  to qualify as a race.

Canadian National Team Selection

Canada’s best pilots should represent our association in international competition. For this reason a point system was devised which rewards pilots placing high in meets that are judged to be more “meaningful”.

A deposit set by the Competition Director by December 01 is required to secure a position on the Canadian Team.

Canadian Team will be selected after the Nationals. (The winner of a nationals is automatically is part of Canadian Team). The National team selection is be decided from accumulated points based on a pilot’s total points for their three best meets.

Pilots are not required to have a rating in order to enter a meet, however there is still a requirement that pilots wishing to receive competition points must have a rating.

High-level meets require a certain minimum number of level IV (experienced) pilots. If not, then major competitions may be devalued. This may encourage pilots to obtain their ratings.
