All competitors are required to register for OBSKC 2018 no later than Aug 31, 2018 . The only registrations that will be accepted after that date will be for the novice class. There is a $40 flat rate for unlimited disciplines
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.
NOTE: OBSKC will be running the Program Precision format for non-Novice, individual dual- and multi-line precision disciplines. The Program Precision format requires that the competitor fly the three figures listed below (in order) as components of a 1-4 minute technical program. If you haven't flown the format before, it's fast, fun, and much more exciting than the "standard" precision format. There will be on-field briefings before and after precision disciplines for questions.
Novices will still compete under the old-style format where each figure will be flown individually, followed by a 1-3 minute technical program.
Novices have the option to fly Program Precision if they choose to do so
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 2.6.5.
For Ballet, fliers may use CD, “flash-drive” or other electronic device according to the new rules approved (but not yet published) for the new season. All music must be marked with the fliers name, including cell phones or other electronic devices and the tracks or titles must be listed as well.
