Short report and Final Score Lists from 2nd Catalunya Cup

Click here to download the cover page with a list of the officials (doc) and Final score lists (with a list of FAI licences of competitors) from 2nd Catalunya Cup-World Cup which was hold from 7 to 9 April, 2006 in Lleida (ESP). Unfortunatelly the original cover page had 1,1 Mb and the score lists 4,4 Mb as I received in on CD from the organizers. So, I had to cut out a very nice logo of the contest (leaving it at only one page of score lists) in order to make file transfer easier.

Safety Notice | 2006-03-27: Special note from the F3C Subcommittee

The CIAM F3C Subcommittee submitted a proposal to modify manoeuvre B8 in 2006 VOLUME F3C at the December 2005 CIAM Bureau meeting. The proposal was accepted at the March 2006 CIAM Plenary meeting with an effective date of May 1, 2006. In the description for manoeuvre B8: Delete old sentence: “During the following vertical descent the model performs a full roll and 90º pullout back to the same altitude and heading as at start of the manoeuvre.” Substitute new sentence: “After the following vertical descent the model performs a 90º pullout back to the same altitude and heading as at start of the manoeuvre.” Reason: Safety – During further tests of the new manoeuvre schedules it was discovered that the full roll during the descent presents a dangerous situation when the model fails to attain sufficient altitude and pulls out facing the crowd line. Note: The revised F3C Sporting Code, incorporating this safety amendment and effective from 1st May 2006, is now available for downloading from the FAI website.
