After-Thanksgiving race confirms Mangels domination

The After-Thanksgiving Race in Portland, Ore., on Nov. 26 finished off the Racing points scramble for 2022, firmly establishing Leighton Mangels of North Plains, Ore., as the Northwest's top racer for the year. Mangels finished atop the standings for Northwest Sport Race, Northwest Super Sport Race, Flying Clown Race and Overall Racing.

The Racing meet was the last contest on the schedule for 2022, so the standings below will be final for the year in all categories unless a new contest pops up on the schedule. Barring an unexpected December meet, the next competition is likely to be Portland's Jim Walker Memorial in April 2021.

Watch Where the Action Is for details of all upcoming Northwest contests.

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 fliers' scores are based on the total number of contestants across the four skill classes. 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.
