I’m in the Q
From:Teppo Sarpila

Hallo Roger!
I agree 100%, what Per and Chris are writing.
Only point if Somebody likes to change F1Q rules is to limit the size of model. We Finns have always run after 34 2dm size.
See You on field.

Bill Booth, I had mentioned in a previous SEN, that if the Team Finals could not be held in October, because of virus concerns. It could be held in February, 2021 as that time frame would give the next team members, plenty of time to get ready before the WC in France.

Editor’s Comment : Mike, I’m sure the TSC will come up with an alternate approach if the Finals can’t be held in October and Feb contests is a good idea, there was a somewhat tongue in cheek comment on this a while  back in SEN by Jim Parker with a selection of alternatives.  It is too soon to decide that  at  the moment.  An major advantage of the current format is that finals participants can’t get any help – positive or negative from an airplane  not taking part in the event e.g no mid air with a non-finals airplane and no thermal picking off a non-finals airplane and the timing and processing is very controlled.  As the Finals is a “national” event all participants from all over the USA should be able to participate to the event and not be constrained by COVID or similar travel restrictions.
