Flying Lines keeps track of standings in all AMA rulebook and Northwest official events, in all Northwest sanctioned contests.

Your FL editors do their best to keep up with the results, but contest directors can help keep the standings up to date by making sure to send the results to FL immediately after the contest. If you spot errors, please let us know.

Results must include the placing in each event through fourth place and the report also must list the number of contestants in the event, in order for the point standings to be counted accurately.

Also, please include in your report the hometown of the contestants. Only Northwest residents are counted in the standings (AMA Dist. XI and British Columbia). The score of each contestant also should be listed for general reporting purposes and for checking against the Northwest records.

If you flew in a contest that doesn't appear to be counted, contact the contest director or Flying Lines.

Special notes: Precision aerobatics expert fliers' scores are multiplied by a factor of 1.5. When an individual is allowed more than one entry in a single event, only the highest-placing score shall be counted. Events run by nonstandard rules will be counted only in the overall standings for the category.

Send contest results, corrections and other correspondence regarding Northwest Competition Standings to Standings Coordinator John Thompson. For a printed copy of complete current standings for any event, send a self-addressed, stamped envelope, to Flying Lines, 2456 Quince St., Eugene, OR 97404. To see rules of all Northwest regional events, go to the Flying Lines Northwest Rules section. For Academy of Model Aeronautics national event rules, go to the AMA web site.
