Top Gun:
The Top Gun award goes to the contest pilot at Clinton who achieves the best combined score for all three flying contests. Pilots who did not achieve a score in more than one contest were not eligible for Top Gun, regardless of their achievements in any individual contest. Because of weather and limited participation in 2006, the Scavenger Hunt did not play a role in awarding Top Gun this year. (None of the Scavenger Hunt participants were otherwise eligible for Top Gun, and none of the Top Gun contenders participated in the Scavenger Hunt.)

Placement listed below was tabulated as follows.

Nerf points: Missed drops were given a score of 100', and the combined scores from all three drops were subtracted from 300 then divided by 30, and rounded to the second decimal place. Note that success in Nerf drops can also be greatly attributed to each pilot's PDS (Package Delivery Specialist.)

Landing points: Total score of three attempts, divided by 4 (judges), then divided by 3 (landings), and rounded to the second decimal place.

Style & Grace Spot Landing:
29 Pilots each made three attempts to touch down  in a 75 long zone known as "Green Acres",  located near the middle of runway 3/21. Green Acres was marked with green painted lines front and back and one green centerline. In order to receive a landing score, any part of the airplane must make the first point of contact with the runway inside Green Acres. Having achieved that somewhat difficult task, landings were then scored on a scale of 1 to 10, by four judges, based on style and grace, like an Olympic  Ice Skating contest. Note that any score on this contests is an worthy achievement, more than half the contestants (55%) missed all three landings on some attempts. (If the above math doesn't seem to add up, consider that some pilots flew in the contests multiple times.)

Rankings are by best average score, as follows: Total score of three attempts, divided by 4 (judges), then divided by 3 (landings), rounded to the second decimal place. Pilots that scored zero on all three attempts are omitted.

Nerf Drop:
29 Teams made a total of three passes each over the target, at no lower than 200 AGL, with the goal of dropping a finned nerf football into a 30 gallon trash can. Drops made lower than 200 AGL received a score of zero for that attempt, and any nerf that landed greater than 100 feet from the target also received a score of zero. The winner of this contest was the team with the single closest attempt. Results listed in order from best to worst. Teams that scored zero on all three attempts are omitted.

Best Combined performances: To qualify, a team must score on more than one attempt. To tabulate the best combined scores for all three drops, the following method was used: Missed drops were given a score of 100', and the combined scores from all three drops were subtracted from 300. By this method, the lower the distance, the higher the score, and 3 misses would result in a score of zero.

Place Team Package Delivery Specialist Combined Score
 1st Bruce Lessig Dave Lambert 231.6
2nd Wayne Reynolds Felipe Marrou 185
 3rd Felipe Marrou Wayne Reynolds 168.5
 4th Dale Moorehead Cyndi Shaffer 164.9
5th Matthew Gray Bill Fyfe 159
6th Kyle Sundberg Kirk Wennerstrom 138
 7th Wally Pond Dave Hastings 136.9
8th Alan Core Denise Core 110.7

Scavenger Hunt:
Teams were sent on an (approximate) 90 minute flight, with a list of clues, and items to identify on the ground. Unfortunately, this year's scavenger hunt turned out to be quite daunting, due to both inclement weather and a longer list of objectives than in previous years. As a result, only 5 teams undertook the challenge, and only three completed the entire hunt. With this in mind we intend to make this contest shorter and less ambitious in the future in order to increase participation.

Scores and details of the 2006 scavenger hunt are currently being organized & tabulated and will be posted when available.
