Saturday 27th August (Competition day)
Any student who has qualified for the Preliminary Final must sign on at the Registration Desk which will be located at a venue to be confirmed (Open Day officials with brightly coloured vests will be able to direct you). When registering we will be asking for a gold coin donation to help cover some of the costs of holding this event.
Students will be directed to line up in the marshalling area for their respective event where students will be lined up behind different runways. When it is time for a student to have their first throw, they will be given an A4 piece of paper and they will be given time to fold their paper plane on the table provided. They will then move up to the line. When given the instruction, each student will release their plane and each student’s throw will be measured by a designated officila who will record their distance/time on the recording sheet. Student’s will then retrieve their planes and move to the end of the line for their second attempt.
When a student has their second attempt they may use the same plane or make a new one.
