The Championship is open to all female US citizens who are in good standing holding a BFA and HACD membership card and registered for Fiesta. Pilots registering are expected to remain and participate for the entire duration of the Championship Event as required by the HACD Code of Conduct explained in Appendix C. With the exception of family emergencies, medical situations and other obvious events outside of the pilot's control, early departure from the event carries financial penalties and may include, regardless of NEL standing, DQ from State, Regional, National and International competition for the next year. Specifics of these regulations are contained in Appendix C and D, Section VI, and Appendix E.
