Champion of Champions Rules:

1. The aim is to promote F3F at a regional level as well as to add an ‘end of winter’ final to some of the fastest flying of the year.
2. Qualifying Leagues: The current North, Midlands and Welsh leagues – held at the Hole of Horcum, Long Mynd and Bwlch respectively are to be the leagues invited for the Winter League.  The top 3 Scottish Pilots from their winter league will also be invited.  Anyone wishing to make their league a ‘qualifying event’ should contact the Champion of Champions Hosting Club Organisor before the end of the season.
2.1  Each league will be invited to send it’s top 5 pilots (identified by finishing positions) to take part in the 2 day fly-off  to be held at one of the UK's flying sites on the last weekend of March.
2.1.1 In addition to the Open class F3F positions, pilots taking part with models of up to 2m span will be classified in their own league.  The top 2m pilot from each league will be invited to the Champion of Champions race.
2.2  Each pilot will automatically be entered into the league that they first race in.  Changes to each pilot’s qualifying league must be made to the League Coordinator before the final round of winter league races.
2.2.1 A pilot may only ‘race’ in either the open or 2m class. 
2.3  In the event of a pilot not being able to compete, or qualifying through another league, the opportunity to race will be passed down each league’s finishing order, to achieve 5 pilots from each league.  ‘Guest’ flyers may be invited at the CD’s discretion - such as CD’s/buzzer supremos.
2.4  Entry fees to the final will be restricted to the amount required by the host club to put on the day’s racing and paying their land owner.

3. Prizes
3.1  The prize for the winning Open class pilot and the winning 2m class pilot at the Champion of Champions Race 2011 will be identified and declared by the organiser once known.
