Here are the rules;
9.3.
A contestant in Basic through Advanced classes will be required to move
to the next higher class at the beginning of the next calendar year if the
contestant wins five (5) or more contests in the current year provided that
in each winning contest the contestant flew against at least four (4) other
competitors who made official flights. If any of the contestant's winning
contests had fewer than four (4) other competitors that made official
flights, that contest will not be counted in the total of winning contests
used to force advancement in class.
So from what I see Rick King will not be forced to move up next year.

It's Rick's choice to move up or not. If you're flying Sportsman I'd say it's time to burn more gas and step up your game.

Thanks Micheal and Clark and Gordon to clarify this.

MOVE UP!!! I would like someone to fly against, I gets lonely here all by myself, and they should put a new rule in that states: If a pilot wins the region by flying against fewer than 2 pilots for any given event, then he has the right to move down to a lower class for competitive reasons, but must return to the original class the following year.

You better get signed up for the Finals then, better not let the chance to fly with a couple other pilots pass you by. Bring the bipe!!
