Vintage Stunt trophy renamed to honor Don McClave

The annual Vintage Stunt trophy, awarded each year to the top-placing flier in combined Old-Time Stunt and Classic Stunt standings, was conceived about 12 years ago by Northwest Stunt icon Don McClave. Don sponsored the trophy for the first nine years, and always "sandbagged" his own participation to make sure someone else won the trophy. Don was an enthusiastic competitor in both OTS and Classic, and was a mentor to many Precision Aerobatics fliers over many years. Don died earlier this year. See obituary.

The Vintage Stunt Trophy, now sponsored by Flying Lines, was renamed the Don McClave Vintage Stunt Trophy beginning with the 2016 award, won by Mike Haverly. The trophy was awarded at the 2016 Fall Follies.

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, and official Northwest rules events (see Northwest Rules for a list)
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.
