National Cup

NFFS sponsors nine National Cup competitions for Juniors, Seniors, and Open participants. Competition details are outlined in the National Cup Rules posted below.


National Cup Scores – Release 6, November 11


New this year – a Senior Cup (age 15 but not yet 19 as of July 1).  Same event lineup as in the Junior Cup, namely 1/2A Power, P-30, Hand Launched Glider, Catapult Glider, Classic Towline, and E-36.  Just like the Junior Cup, it is not necessary for contest organizers to hold separate events with awards for those events—just report any Junior or Senior fliers who flew at your contest as if their events had been held individually.  Kids shouldn’t have to fly against adults to earn points, and adults shouldn’t earn bonus points for flying against kids.  The new forms for this year have a separate table for the Senior Cup events.

If you have any questions regarding scoring, or any other aspect of the program, please contact me.  That’s it for now—thanks again for all the help from you CD’s.  Couldn’t do this without you.

Hope to see you on a flying field soon.
Bob Hanford
