It looks like we will have pleasant weather for this competition!

https://weather.com/weather/weekend/l/USTN0357:1:US

Not sure when the system will move out on Friday for practice. I will likely be there on Friday (as long as it is clearing).

It should be a little overcast on Saturday (that's going to be good for the morning sun) morning so we will get started as early as possible.

See ya'll then!@

Is there electricity on site?
Do we need generators?

I might arrive a little later than l planned due to the weather. But really want to get in a couple of rounds and support the event. If I got there around lunch, would I still be able to fly?

Have the car packed up, but I've been sitting at a standstill on the interstate for 50 minutes now. Still not at Birmingham. If we don't get to a regular pace soon I will have to turn back.

My wife left an hour before me headed to North Alabama. She called and said there was not only accidents but at a rest stop she said there were several travelers from the tropical storm. The hour fifteen minute drive to Birmingham took her 2 and a half hours. No way I will make it on time, sucks.

Got back and did a couple of flights; both helis went down. One of those weekends.

Music City Helicopter championships 2017 was a great sucess!

For those of you who missed it, it was a regular "who's who" in model helicopter competition.

I want to send out a thankful appreciation for several brand new "sportsman" competitors.Three of the four pilots were first time competitors.

Adam McDonald, long time Nashville area native watched for years and finally gave it a try. In just a few short flights, he learned what to do to significantly improve his scoring.

Wes Minear took a long drive from Arkansas to attend his very first helicopter competition. Wes flew very well and captured a well earned second place in the SPORTSMAN class.

Finally, our 2017 SPORTSMAN champion, David Snow, made the long drive from Chicago, IL, to attend his first competition. I had a chance to judge David (as well as all of the other pilots) and was very impressed at the lever of quality performance they all showed.

We had one pilot in both the "advanced" cl ass and "expert" class (Jim Hall and Charles Anderson) Jim lives in the Nashville area and I fly at his local class on occasion. Clearly Jim has been practicing the ADVANCED class maneuvers.

Additionally, Charles Anderson (of IRCHA fame) has been practicing the EXPERT maneuvers as well showing great improvements from last season. All of these pilots are sure to be very competitive at the upcoming US Nat's.

For the very first time, we held the F3N class. Two competitors, 2016 third place US Nationals pilot, Devin Hammonn and 2016 national (US) champion both flew all rounds very well. In the end Devon earned a strong second place and Nick Maxwell became the 2017 Music City F3N champion. BTW; Nick Maxwell will be competing at the upcoming WC (Poland) in a few weeks.

Finally, we were honored and appreciative at the large and loyal attendance from virtually all of the regular F3C competitors in north America were in attendance. Additionally , and I really appreciate it, long term FC3 competitor, Rolando Perez, not only agreed to be a seated judge without flying, he insisted in paying a registration fee (as a pilot!) Very kind and unexpected - thanks and we all look forward to having you back flying with us!

The entire US (world) team made the trip (only a fee weeks before departing to Poland) to have one last formal competition before the "big dance" world championships. At the end of the event, Dwight Shilling placed third, Daniel Hiatt second place and Nick Maxwell earned his second Music City (F3C) championship!I know I missed some people and apologize in advance.
