Portland Racing meet wraps up 2019 standings

The Portland Northwest Sport Race/Clown Race contest on Nov. 30 brought an end to all the year's control-line competition. The Portland meet did not change the top of the Racing leaderboard, cementing Leighton Mangels as the top overall Racer and the Northwest Sport Race champ.

Next contest to be counted in the Northwest standings, according to the current schedule, will be the Jim Walker Memorial Spring Tune-Up in April 2020.

The Northwest standings system

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.

How the points are compiled:

Who is eligible to score points: Any resident of AMA District XI or British Columbia. AMA Dist. XI includes Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana and Alaska.
What events are counted: Official AMA rulebook events, official Northwest rules events (see Northwest Rules for a list) and official special interest group events such as PAMPA's Classic Stunt and Old-Time Stunt or NASS Sport Jet Speed.
What contests count in the standings: All contests taking place within Dist. XI or British Columbia, sanctioned by the Academy of Model Aeronautics or MAAC.
How the points are awarded: Points are awarded to the top four placers in any event. First place is worth the number of entries in the event; second place is number of entries minus 1; third place is number of entries minus 2; fourth place is number of entries minus 3. Example: If there are 12 entries, first place gets 12 points, second place 11, third place 10, fourth place 9.
Overall standings:
In events with multiple classes, an overall points tally also is kept. In Speed and Scale, all classes are combined.
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, including record-ratio events, 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. For a PDF copy of the complete current standings for any event, e-mail the standings coordinator. To see rules of all Northwest regional events, go to the Flying Lines Northwest Rules section.
