An entry form may be purchased for $25.00 on or before October 12 from www.manitobaflyball.com.

Participants will be divided into 3 Categories according to their cruise speed.  This will space out the arrival times at the finish.

Categories are as follows:

Category 1 

Airspeed: <90 knots

Start Time: 0930h 

Finish Time: 1430h

 

Category 2 

Airspeed: 90-130 knots

Category 3

Finish Time: 1500h
 

 

You may depart prior to your starting time on October 5, however you may not pick up a Flyball from your point of departure, and you may not pick up a Flyball prior to assigned starting time. The entry form must be presented at the start of the event for

signature not before start time on October 5.

You may return to your home aerodrome to pick up a ball, but it may not be your first Flyball pickup. In other words, your home aerodrome cannot be your first stop.

Appropriate circuit entry procedures must be followed. Cutting off other aircraft, improper overtaking procedures, or other infractions that endanger yourself or others may result in forfeiture of points or disqualification.

You may fly to any participating aerodrome that is suitable for your aircraft performance and on landing you must park, shut down and present your entry form to the check in desk for signature. Then choose a unique numbered Flyball from those remaining in the receptacle provided. A selection will be available to choose from and you should choose the

Flyball with the highest number which

will be added to your final score.

You may earn extra bonus points for completing additional exercises. Some examples could be:

  • Filing flight plans

  • Navigating to lat/longs and spotting    certain features

  • Using ATC services

  • Touchdown accuracy

(one attempt only, at one aerodrome)

 

You may only visit participating aerodromes once during the day.

 

It is forbidden for you or participating aerodromes to communicate the values of the remaining Flyballs to any other participant or aerodrome.

Flying continues to any participating aerodrome throughout the day continuing to collect Flyballs after each landing, all aerodromes will have Flyballs for collection to add to your score.

The final leg of the competition will require you to reach Morden Aerodrome CJA3, the “finish”, and land before your assigned category's finish time. Please note arriving after your finish time may incur penalties or exclusion. On landing at Morden present your entry form for points calculation. You must be vigilant and on the lookout for other aircraft! There will be numerous aircraft converging into Morden and in the circuit at the same time.

PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND OBSERVANT!

This is meant to be a fun event, the random nature of routing and the unpredictable values of FlyBalls provides an element of luck essential to the outcome.

 

The first visitors to each aerodrome will pick up the highest scoring FlyBalls but as the day progresses only lower scoring FlyBalls will be available.  Some pre-flight planning will be necessary to optimize your flight path and accurate navigation considering prevailing weather (winds) may assist/hamper your progress.  Some skill will be required to make the optimum flight plan.
