2013 sees more teams and new rules!

The main changes:

  1. There will be 2 trophies.  The original Brass Monkey will be fought out between the Southerly Busters.  A new category has been set up for all Victorian GPS Teams.  The home game will be a beach designated by the team eg Swan Bay for the Connewarre Cremasters, etc
  2. There will be a $25 entry fee per competitor which will cover the cost of the trophy, and full event insurance during the 12 weeks that the event runs.  Participants must be paid up IWC members.
  3. To register your entry, drop an email to the event organiser- Mick Green.  In the email body outline your team and a mobile contact.
  4. Away game is 75km from home beach
  5. Formula will be PEAK SPEED (in KNOTS) minus AVERAGE AIR TEMP (in ‘C) divided by AVERAGE WIND SPEED (in KNOTS)
    PEAK SPEED is 2 second peak
    AIR TEMP is average air temperature during the time of your session, based on the closest weather station to your location
    AVERAGE WIND SPEED is the average of peak/ strongest wind gusts during the time of your session, based on the closest weather station to your location.
  6. Current Brass Monkey Champion must produce Monkey talisman on request.  Failure to produce talisman will result in BMC scores being struck from the day’s competition.
  7. There are even more rules this year, yet the Monkey remains at $3 in value….

 

 

 

Previous Competitions

2012 Brass Monkeys Speed Challenge dished up more surprises.  In what many are calling a curse, previous BMC winners strike misfortune when they attempt to defend their title in the following year….Coincidence or not??

    Howdy ,
    say you had a session of 2 hrs which results in 5 readings from Pound Creek. Is the average (temp or wind speed) the average of all 5 readings or the average of the highest and lowest reading for that period? I say average of all 5 readings. This may need to be clarified to all.
    ;-)
