Wednesday 10th will be static, followed by flying each morning Thursday through Saturday. Same format as last year, which I think worked pretty well.

Time to get the model polished, the freestyle routine practised and of course, get your entries in

3 judges

3 view drawing

Photos to illustrate your colours, markings, and any special details

Helpful to have them in a 3ring binder, and one for each judge

i'll stop here before i start sounding like Tesla

paul

edit:

fly smoothly, slowly, and in control.

good luck and if you finish last, we'll have to talk

Paul covered it. The best thing to do is to read the rules carefully and bring your model and documentation and do not expect to win. Watch what the others do look at their models and learn. That way you will have a lot of fun and no pressure. Everyone is very nice and very helpful. Ask a question about how they did something and you are likely to get every little detail of the procedure.

But if you should do well and take home a trophy, what a bonus!

Be warned though, competing gets addictive and once you start, you will be back.

Sorry for the delay guys, the internet in my RV has been non functional for the last 3 days.

A very poor turnout this year, only 4 entries. The results have been posted so here's pix of the happy entrants

Our man Darrel

This is Gale getting all excited during the static judging

here's Stan and his rocket ship

gale is still wildly enthusiastic during the flying rounds

New guy Paul with his BK117 willing to have a go

Eric with his baby

And all the happy entrants before the contest

Weather was cold at first, but everyone else told this Florida boy the weather was just nice. The last couple of days have been much hotter and flat calm for most of the day.

Last day tomorrow and everyone is having a blast. The usual scale bunch of rascals are here with one or two new faces and the scale flying zone is usually busy with a line forming to fly. The margerita machine is getting a good workout and its the swarm party tonight so I am off to get plastered.
