Points will be awarded on the basis of placings in all events flown by a
contestant in both the ESFFC and the GGG. The winner must have posted at
least one official time at both of those contests. In other words, a flyer who
flies at only the ESFFC or the GGG will not be eligible for the Grand
Champion Award regardless of the number of points earned.
To qualify for the award the flier must have recorded a time (but not necessarily a
score) in at least one event in each of the two contests and must have recorded a
time in each of at least two of the three categories – glider, rubber, and power. For
the purposes of this scoring, Electric and 1/2A Texaco shall be counted as power

points. In the event of a tie, the flier who has flown the greater number of events
shall be declared the winner.
