I attach FAI CIAM Space Models World Cup 2009 – Final Placing Lists! We came very successfully to the end of our competition season with a lot of very, very successfully organized contests – 20 at three continents (America, Asia and Europe) and with only two cancellations because of the organisational problems, but which will be resolved for the next year.
CONGRATULATIONS and THANKS to all of you – the winners, sportsmen, organizers, juries and judges. All of you have worked like a precize mechanism! We had an excellent sportsmenship in all events. The organizers have respected timing and form in preparing and sending results and jury reports. It was my pleasure to have Current Placing Lists prepared and distributed just after every contest for the first time: 18 of such reports were prepared and distributed during the competition season including this one! This helped you all in planning, tactics and finally winning in particular classes.
Cooperation of SM SC Software Group: Dr A. Mazzaracchio (ITA), Manuel Maehl (GER) and V. Skorepa (CZE) contributed to improvement of these reports during the year. They deserve my thanks also.
Winners in overall placings deserve to be announced:
S4A – KIRILL EGOROV (RUS)
S6A – LESZEK MALMIGA (POL)
S7 – BEDRICH PAVKA (CZE)
S8E/P – EDWARD WOWRY (POL)
S9A – LESZEK MALMIGA (POL).
Leszek Malmiga (POL) was no doubt the most successful with two first places!
Two veterans also deserve our congratulations: Prof GENADIY POLTAVETS took the third place in class S6A and fourth place in class S4A and his main competition was RADOJICA KATANIC (72) the oldest SM WCup competitior, who took fifth place in classes S4A and S6A and eight place in class S9A – so he was placed in „top ten“ in all three duration classes.
Tony Reynolds and his associates and also Canadian SMs deserve to be mentioned for successful organisation and conduction of the Capitol Cup in Manassas (USA) that bridged the Ocean and reestablished the FAI CIAM Space Models World Cup in America.
I ASK YOU TO DISTRIBUTE THESE SPACE MODELS WORLD CUP PLACING TABLES TO ALL PERSONS, MAGAZINES OR ORGANISATIONS IN YOUR COUNTRY THAT MIGHT BE INTERESTED IN OUR ACTIVITY.
We have promises from Africa from At Meyer that in one of the North African countries shall take place the first Africa Cup 2010! It will be easily accessable for European spacemodellers too, so we expect it on the next year Contest Calendar impationatelly.
Now, I wish you all to have a long and good relaxation first and after that to start with preparations for SM WCup competition season 2010. I wish us all to make it best ever!
With best regards
