2022 District 1 Current Championship , as of 8/23/23
NSRCA DISTRICT-1 Championship Points System
Current District I Championship Points Program
NSRCA District I encourages excellence in Pattern by recognizing district champions in each class. Pilots earn points toward the championship by competing in sanctioned contests.
- NSRCA membership. A Pilot must be an NSRCA member to be eligible to accumulate District I Championship points. A pilot who starts the season as a non-member may begin to accumulate points effective the date his membership application is received by the NSRCA Secretary or an NSRCA District I Official.
- Championship points. Championship points may be awarded to a pilot based on placement in a contest. Points are awarded as follows:
1st Place: 9 points
2nd Place: 7 points
3d Place: 5 points
4th Place: 3 points
5th Place: 1 point
- Best 5 results. Pilots are encouraged to participate in as many contests as possible.
- The pilot’s 5 best finishes for the season will count toward the Championship.
- Each pilot may include his/ her participation in up to one out-of District contest in these ‘best 5’ results.
- Ties in Championship standings:
- Ties are broken by extending the number of contests earning points to 6.
- If a tie still exists after considering 6 contests, then the tied pilot who has finished ahead of the other tied pilot the greater number of times out of the original 5 ‘best’ contests will be considered the Champion.
- Bonus points. One of the purposes of pattern contests is to promote Pattern flying. Though no contest is more important than any other contest, this rule is an effort to recognize outstanding performance at larger contests.
- A pilot who wins a contest in a class of 5 or more pilots will receive a bonus point for his finish in that contest; that is, his win will be worth 10 Championship points, not 9.
- A pilot may earn up to three bonus points in this manner during the course of the contest season.
- Total Possible Points. As described above, a pilot may earn a maximum of 48 points (5 first-place finishes and 3 bonus points) in a maximum of 5 counted contests during the season.
