    9698Another option to get participants into a .fsdb file is to use "Participants.xlt" This is an Excel Template which you just double-click on to create a new spreadsheet, then add participants directly in Excel anyway you like. Follow the instructions written as comments in the spreadsheet. Note that you will need to have macros enabled in Excel for the spreadsheet to work.

    172174The Jump the Gun factor set the penalty that is added to the pilot time when starting early, it does not affect the other bonuses like leading points or arrival bonus. The factor should be high enough to discourage tactical use of this by the pilots, depending on the level of the competition.

     176When setting the task in FS, make sure the '''open time for the SS turnpoint''' is set to the same open time as the turnpoint before (Usually the takeoff open time, and do not confuse with the start gate times). FS will not score anyone flying through a turnpoint before it's open, thus the pilots jumping the gun will not be scored correctly.

    174178For Cat 1 competitions the CIVL rules set the factor to 10, and pilots may not start more than 5 minutes early. (At least for hanggliding, not sure if this was decided for paragliding at the CIVL meeting in Manzanillo, Feb 2008?)
