This year event differs from the last 2 events that we have held in that we will NOT build consecutive records of the same size. Once we have completed and the judges have validated an 81-Way World Record, we will then add the appropriate people to add the Row 10 wings and lockups.

As always, lack of skill, dangerous flying, poor team skills or bad decisions may be grounds for disqualification.

Flying skills, Team skills, slot difficulty, split times

Flying skills - Exit, echelon, traffic, approach /dock, Formation, post formation safety
Team skills - Attitude, Attendance (being in the right place at the right time) etc.
