Dalton

I agree with you Jim and that's why I suggested that the competition be conducted at the beginning of the week (Monday and Tuesday) and I figure that the flight line may be tied up for 4 or 5 hours total for both days. This should still leave plenty of time for everybody else to fly during those 2 days along with the fact that there is still the complete rest of the week for the fun fly. We could even have it so one or two competitors fly at a time and then take a 30 or so minute break to open the flight line for everybody else. This may make it a more relax competition. Again, these are just suggestions I'm throwing out there and it really all comes down to what you guys want or don't want....along with what Darrell wants of course...lol Mark

Gotta Agree

I am with Jim, and Darrell on leaving Dalton, Dalton... originally they had competition at Dalton and the attendees were the ones that chose to stop it.. so, if we "need" a TG, let it be someplace else!!
I think Michael had a good idea in having more clubs put on local scale events to help bring these guys out to fly... then possibly making the competitions grow again... start at the bottom and work your way up!!!

I think TOP GUN at Dalton is another option that could work as Mark suggested. 75% of the participants arrive wed -Fri and it would not effect those that are there early in the week. I attended my first Dalton Challenge in 2006 and won "pilots choice" and I was hooked. I don't think it changes The "Dalton Challenge" and what it has become.

Sorry Mark, now 3 to 1.

A fun fly is a fun fly, and competition is competition. You approach them differently, and they have a much different stress level when you attend.

The early weekdays at Dalton are the best of the best. Really relaxed flying, or not flying, with your friends and fellow scale helicopter enthusiasts.

Please do not do anything to "Dalton" to change what it currently is; the best place to have FUN with your scale model helicopters and helicopter friends of the year.

If we want to add a "Top Gun" like competition event on the calendar, great! But let's not loose something wonderful in the process.

Hey Guys.. I was going to let Darrell Sprayberry do the press release but with all this talk about another competition I guess I'll do it.
The event will be in Panama City on the 29th an 30th of April.
We had planned on having another Dalton type event. To be informal but also to use it as a preparation event for the Nationals and IRCHA, just friendly competition. Kind of the best of both worlds. But we can setup the event anyway you want. Darrell is the event coordinator, I will be the host.

The event is just over 4 months out. We will need to choose our format as soon as we can. Either way I'm sure it will be a good time had by all.
Looking forward to meeting everyone and learning from you all.
Thanks

Dennis

Sometimes "competition" just isn't needed???
Just my opinion...

I couldn't agree more!

Showing up early is not an issue. One or more of you will be given a key to the gate to come and go as you wish, whoever will be RV'n it will have a key for sure. I will work on the Events Forum post this week and give event name, directions and show field details.

As much as I like road trips the west coast is my limit for scale events. As a new builder/pilot I've learned/experienced a great deal from Circumgyration 2007 and HSM 2016. Looking forward to HSM 2017 at the least. Its never good to see something taken away, but we must move on and continue regardless.
