Go up to the \"Launches\" menu, select \"Contests\" and finally, \"Rules\". This will link you to the NAR's pink book. There you will find the official definitions and critrea for each of the contests listed.

My only recommendation: change A Rocket Glider to B Boost Glider, then A Streamer to B Streamer.
Reason: Better selection of B motors for both events. The glider needs the shorter 2-second delay and the streamer requires a 6-second delay, none of which are available in mini-A motors.
Keep Future Fiction Scale, now that we have a better idea of what to do. We can always try sport scale next May (perhaps Giant?)

WHAT! Talking events for October already? Sure. Most people would like plenty of time to build for events. The October NAR contest roundup that I am proposing is as follows:
A Parachute Duration
A Streamer Duration
B Helicopter Duration
A Rocket Glider
Open Spot Landing
Science Fiction Scale
These are not finalized yet. There are commercially available kits for every event here. Let me know which events you are interested in and I will describe the event and which kits can be used. Or you can design your own.
We will be pulling the equipment out of the UROC trailer and cleaning, repairing, and organizing our gear for the upcoming flying season. Everyone is welcome to come help. It will be dirty work so wea…
