Warwick Winter Cup 8 (WWC8)

 Yahoo and yeehar ! Yes ‘Cuppers the Winter Cup is back in full swing and we are already 1 month into the three month comp. What a cracker last weekend was too. Updates to come very soon when all the weekend results are in....King Karl, CFI Sid, Dictator Dan, Val and Bill, White Ant Express, Look at me Laurie and the Boonah Boys Brian Winner Gilby and JP all had cracking flights so stay tuned for the WWC updates.

 Yes the WWCRAP committee is back from sorting out the Video Assisted Referee (VAR) problems with that other world competition so our world is all very nice and in a pleasant state of equilibrium yet again.

For our newbies to WWC some quick rules you need to know...you will receive 5 points for just launching behind WPS and enjoying a sled ride. Bonus points are achieved by uploading your trace to OLC (Online Competition) and tuggies receive the average of WWC points for the day rounded up to the next highest number. (The WWCRAP would have written in the rules “rounded up to the next highest integer” but we are dealing with glider pilots after all ....)

 Just a reminder that this year to get your name etched on the WWC Distance trophy and a place in gliding history you will need to launch behind our tug and from Warwick. So all you self launching “competitors” out there uploading outrageous traces to OLC during the WWC and not raising a single drop of sweat knowing you could fire up the old iron thermal whenever you needed it * to get you back home then sorry you will not be eligible this year to win the prestigious WWC Distance trophy. (* Yes the WWCRAP wishes to acknowledge that 9Kts Nigel did try this once in Dictator Dans jet powered JS1 straight after a launch and did indeed produce a little more than just sweat in the cockpit while trying to start the engine and the outlanding minutes later... )

However the WWCRAP will have a special prize/ trophy for you at the annual black tie awards night, which we have named the SLACCA (Self Launching Aircraft Cross Country Award) trophy thingy.
