The draft Calendar of VPA competitions for 2021 has been updated. Please note:
- 1 Day comps coming up:
- Nepean: 14th February (Sun) Cancelled due to 5 Day Emergency Lockdown
- P&DARCs (Classic Pattern): 20th February (Sat)
Naturally subject to any developments on the COVID front.
Now we are using the Notaumatic system we are trialing a different way to present results.
You can find VPA results here - VPA Google Drive
At present there is a Google Sheet for each competition - with two copies of the latest for reasons noted below. They are the same.
Each sheet has:
- Four tabs with the overall results by class.
- A tab where you can access the details of your individual scores.
On the Individual tab you need to put your pilot number from the competition in the Green cell near the top left, wait a couple of seconds, and your scores will appear (and ignore the 'Heads up' warning - it is a Google thing we can't get rid of it). If you can't edit the Pilot number then we have screwed up the permissions - so let David Gibbs know, or wait until we checks and fix it! As this is effectively public data we do not want to publish pilot or judge names. Also note that it is your overall scores that are important for performance improvement, not who gave them to you!
Over time we can add further analytics. At present we have just included the 'Gap' to total score, and a sorted list in order of gap. Put simply, the bigger the gap the more you should practice that manoeuvre.
The one small drawback with this method is that only one person can be accessing their scores at once. So hence the two copies of the latest. If you see the pilot number changing or nor reflecting your changes there may be someone else in the spreadsheet. If you see that try the other copy, or wait a few minutes.
