Open launch starts on day 2

There are twenty open slots for open window starting on the second day of the competition.  There will be strips of paper in the headquarters.  If you wish to go in open launch, print your name on the paper and put the paper in the jar with the yellow lid on top of the mail boxes for the team leaders.

You must do this by 9 AM Tuesday morning and likely much earlier every morning thereafter.

Wesley Hill will draw the open launch pilot names and make up the pilot staging/launch line using ten names in each of the lines starting from the first staging position.

The top thirty pilots as of Monday night will launch/stage in reverse order, with number 30 at the 11th staging spot on one line and number 29 at the 11th staging spot on the other line, and so on down to the top pilot from the first day.

Cumulative results will continue to be used for this ordering throughout the competition.
