Competitor information  (Top)

Depending upon registration numbers, some disciplines may be combined for scheduling efficiency. All scores will be reported to the AKA and Eastern League by discipline, regardless of how they are run.

OBSKC will be run under the rules and guidelines in the International Sport Kite (ISK) Competition Rules version 2.4, ISK Judges' Book version 2.2, ISK Compulsories Book version 2.2, and the AKA Appendix version 2.6.3.

Precision events for Novice Individual Precision (NIP), Novice Multiline Precision (NMP), Combined Paris Precision (CPP), Open Team Precision (OTP), and Combined Multiline Pairs Precision (CMPP), and Open Multiline Team Precision (OMTP) will be conducted according to the format spelled out in the AKA rulebooks (see above).

Program Precision Format for EIP, MIP, EMP, and MMP

The program precision (formerly called league-style) format will be used for the Individual Precision disciplines with the Experienced and Masters classes. The following rules will apply.

 Individual competitors will have 3 minutes for setup time. The program precision format will be used for the Individual Precision disciplines with the Experienced and Masters classes. The following rules will apply.

  1. Competitors will fly a routine that contains the three compulsory figures listed for their discipline below. This routine will not be flown to music, and will be between 1 - 4 minutes for individuals.
  2. The competitor will begin the routine by calling "IN", at which point the clock will start.  The competitor will call "OUT" at the end of the routine.
  3. The 3 figures must be flown in the order listed below.  When starting each figure, the competitor will call "IN", and call "OUT" when the figure is completed.  There is no minimum or maximum transition time between figures, but all 3 figures must be completed as part of a comprehensive, choreographed routine within the minimum and maximum time.

  4. If a competitor wants to start his/her routine with the first figure, they can, as long as the judges are notified beforehand.  The competitor may also fly a figure reversed, so long as the judges are notified beforehand.

From the competitor's and the field director's perspective, the competition will be conducted much in the same way as ballet.  The field director will have the precision figures on hand for reference.  Since we're still scoring 3 figures and a technical routine, we will be using the standard precision scoresheets to score the routine.

Competition Figures for EIP, MIP, EMP, and MMP:

Remember that the league-style precision format dictates that the figures must be flown in the order given:
 

 

EIP/MIP:

DI-02

DI-13

DI-19

EMP / MMP:

MI-13

MI-21

MI-16
