The following is a list of events approved for inclusion in the 2016 BFA HACD National Eligibility List System.

Events desiring to submit scores for inclusion in the NEL must notify an HACD Board member, National Sanction Manager or National Eligibility List Manager of their intentions PRIOR TO THE EVENT. The HACD may refuse scores submitted without prior notification, not submitted within the 21 day deadline, or not following other portions of the published Rules, Regulations, Policies and Procedures.

This notification should include the date and location of the event and contact information regarding results (usually the Scoring Officer or Event Director).

As per APPENDIX D Section I e:  In order for task scores to qualify for submission for inclusion to the NEL, both of the following conditions must be met:

  1) A minimum of six (6) HACD cardholders must be registered, present and flying the task

  2) 50% or more of the total pilots registered pilots must launch

Please use the following "color reference" to see the status of the event results.

Events in RED= Events that the HACD is anticipating scores from, but have not yet received them from the event. The NEL Manager has been notified to anticipate results. Results should be submitted WITHIN 21 DAYS of the event to the NEL Manager. Pilots not seeing an event listed that they expect to receive scores for should contact the event officials and ask them to contact the NEL Manager or HACD Board. Scores submitted without being listed may not be accepted.

Events in Black= Events with no valid tasks flown, or that have submitted results to the National Eligibility List Manager and are being verified, redone, and printed to PDF.

Events in Green= Results posted for review before final submission to the National Eligiblity List. Competitors have 30 days from the date posted to inquire on amendments per the rules. The date posted is listed next to the results.

Events in Blue= Results have been verified and entered into the National Eligibility List. If less than 30 days have passed from the posted date, inquiries for corrections may still be made. Changes after this time period may be considered at the discretion of the HACD Board.
