Competitors
Below is a list of pilots who have indicated that they plan to compete in the contest.  Please let me know ASAP if you are planning to come to the contest.  We want to get a large crowd for the contest and it is my opinion that a large list of potential competitors helps convince others to come join in the fun.

Register NOW
Please register early for the contest.  There will be a $50 late fee assessed if you register after March 30, 2007. To avoid the late fee you must both register on the SSA website and send in your $100 deposit.   This contest is going to be a large one and the number of applicants has exceeded the number of competitors we can accommodate.  The rules state that we must limit the total number of gliders in all 3 contests to 65.  The Preferential Entry Deadline is March 30th.  Registrations received before that will be accepted in order of pilot ranking (as described in the rules).  Applications received after that will be taken in the order they are received.  Registration is available now on the SSA website on the following page:  http://www.ssa.org/members/contestreports/Registeronline.asp.  Please register early for the contest so that the team of volunteers will know how many people to expect.  You will still need to sign the registration form when you arrive at the contest.  Please send you $100 deposit ASAP (feel free to pay the full amount in advance) made out to Cumulus Soaring, Inc. to the address on the bottom of this web page. 
The deadline for canceling an entry with a full refund is May 15th, 2007 (14 days before the 1st contest day).  After that date, money will be refunded at the discretion of the Contest Manager. 

Pilot Ranking Example
The Nationals contest pilots will get priority over the Region 7 Contest pilots. I am pretty certain that there will be less than 65 competitors in the Nationals contests.  The remaining slots will be filled with pilots in the Region 7 Contest.  For the Region 7 Contest we will "limit the number of slots to which inverted preference applies" to 7 pilots (as per rule 5.2.2.2).  That means that the 7 pilots with the the lowest ranking will get first priority, the remaining pilots will be ranked using standard "non-inverted" preference numbers.  So if there are 7 pilots with zero ranking they will all get a ranking of 100.  After that the rankings are done in order with the higher numbers having priority over the lower numbers.  There is a good chance that quite a few pilots listed below will drop out before the contest.  Therefore I recommend that you not worry about whether or not you will get in - just register and get on the waiting list if necessary.  You will probably be able to fly in the contest.

Waiting Lists
The waiting list is empty and there is room for 1 more competitor in the event (in any class).
