CONSTRUCTION AND FINISH COMPETITION – REVISED RULES 2021
Note that the limit on model numbers is withdrawn, the judging system is changed and if possible there will be a flying element to the competition.
This annual competition is designed to encourage model aircraft building within the Club.
Completed models, which must have flown, shall be judged at either the September Club meeting or at a meeting at Oldfield, also in September.
In order that the construction element can be assessed, models should also be brought along in unfinished state to at least one earlier meeting.
When presented at the September meeting for final judging, the model must be supported by a completed data sheet (available HERE and on the day). During the judging, all members present will be invited to view and score the models.
Prizes will also be awarded for the best model from a member who has not previously won the competition and (if the weather is suitable) for the best flight of any of the models present.
The winner of the shield will be asked to be the chief judge in the following year and is requested to arrange the judging, whether at Oldfield or the Village Hall.
Scoring shall be by a cumulative points system. All members present will be asked to score each model out of 10 points on the basis of both its construction and finish. The builder of the highest scoring model in each category shall be the winner.
