2011 IMAC Regional Points Series (IRPS)  
 

Updated:  December, 29, 2010

Any competitor that wishes to qualify for regional points must be an IMAC member in good standing.  If a competitor joins IMAC mid-season, only contests attended from that point on will qualify for regional points.

The Competition Season will run from January 1 through December 31, and will include all five classes - Basic through Unlimited. The IMAC Regional Points Series will be based on points earned from the top five (5) contests for each individual contestant.

Points per contest will be calculated from the contest’s final results.  The winner of each class will receive 1000 points.  The following competitor’s scores will be a normalized score based on their final score respective to the winner’s.  Regional Points are rounded to the nearest whole number.

Example:  
First:          6875   Points:  1000
Second:     6723               978
Third:        6145               894
Fourth:      5475               796

Qualified contests will be those listed in the IMAC contest calendar shown on the IMAC website under the respective regions.  Contests must comply with IMAC standards and must have their results verified and posted within 14 days to count towards Regional Points.

A “Regional Finals Contest” as denoted by the respective Regional Director will count the same points value towards the region’s points series. The Regional Finals Contest will be a normal IMAC contest open to all classes.

A competitor may receive points for his/her region, as well as count two contests outside of his or her region.  The AMA Scale Aerobatics NATS will NOT count as one of the contests because of dropping participants for the final day of the contest.  Any competitor is eligible to fly in any region, regardless of residence.

In the case of a tie for a class points champion, the pilot who finishes highest in his top 5 IRPS Qualified contests, based upon the total # of pilots defeated, would win.  If there is still a tie, the pilot who places highest at the Regional Final contest will win the IRPS title.

Example: In the example below Pilot B will win the IRPS title. Pilot B earned 5000 points and defeated 22 pilots versus Pilot A’s 5000 points and 19 pilots defeated.

If a pilot is the only competitor in his class, points will be awarded to that competitor if a complete contest is flown as set forth by the contest standards guide.

A pilot will not be eligible for regional awards in more than one category. If a pilot moves into a higher competition class during the year, the pilot will have to advise his/her Regional Director of the change AND at that time, will also advise in which class he/she would like his/her regional points calculated.

Plaques will be awarded for first through third place in each class.

For the purpose of Regional Points, if a Basic-class competitor places first, second or, third in the Regional Points, regardless if competitor has not placed in enough Basic contests to move up, the competitor will have to move to the Sportsman class in the 2012 season. In the event that the competitor doesn’t move up, any points earned in 2012 will not count toward the next year’s Regional Points Championship.

The IMAC Regional Points Series (IRPS) awards will be funded through entry fees. A $3.00 fee for each competitor in all classes will be sent by the Contest Director to the Regional Director for a contest to be included in the season point system

At the discretion of the Regional Director, fees not received within two (2) weeks of the contest date may result in the disqualification of points towards the season point tally from that contest.

Any competitor may petition the appropriate Regional Directors or BOD to change his/her home region.  These requests must be made yearly in writing, and are considered on a case by case basis.
