Alright lol, I'll start.

So on an approximately 30 ft ceiling, we are getting something around 2 min.

I heard someone at LISO say they were getting around 2:30 on about the same ceiling.

I've heard most people are around the 1:50-2:00 with a 30 ft ceiling. Competitive schools I know of have gotten much higher...

You'll see at MIT; a lot of good fliers will be there. I'll be interested in the results. ;)

I'm still doing ~65-70% max winds flights, but I got a new record today with that many winds. In a 21 ft ceiling, I got 2:42 after losing 4 meters of altitude to ceiling hits(Yes the person who got 4th at Nats last year for div B WS).

I saw a lot of teams flight times go drastically down because of the venue. There was a huge draft on the right, and chords sticking from the ceiling nearly everywhere. If you hit an obstruction, you were toast. I did see a 1:30 there, and that's the highest I remember. I'm sure someone got around 2:00 however.

I've heard some times at Stoga went up to 3 minutes, but keep in mind the venue was rather large, which results in longer flight times.
