ContestManager


ContestManager is a standalone application designed to aid Contest Directors in keeping track of points at a National Association of Rocketry (NAR) contest. The major goal of this project is to relieve many of the tedious computational tasks such as altitude data reduction and NAR points tabulation. It is currently available for Windows (95 or later), Solaris, Linux, and any other platform that supports Java 1.7. Java can be downloaded separately here.

Starting with the 2017-2018 contest year, CB-170 forms and Points Award Sheet are no longer required. There are new forms for contestant registration and flight data recording, but these are optional. Contest Directors should record data in ContestManager, and send the file to your Regional Contest Board Chair so they can validate results.
