Our Western Regional Qualifier date is approaching fast and we hope all members will be present and counted for. The dates again are June 27, 28, and 29 at the El Toro Marine Base.
Four categories are listed to encourage Squadron members and others to participate. Sportsman requires a three view and some proof that the aircraft did exist. This can be a stand off scale aircraft. No ARF's are allowed in this category. Sportsman Scale was created to give a new pilot the feel of competition in a scale contest. Winners of Sportsman Scale do not transfer to the U.S. Scale Master Championships in Ohio.
Fun Scale was created to include the many scale type ARFs and way stand off models that were built from a kit. No documentation is required other than an ad or the box top art showing where the model came from or what it is called. This is just in case the judges can't figure it out.
Fun Scale receives an automatic 5 points for static, then the rest is up to the pilot and his flying ability. Mandatory manuevers for all classes are of course the Take-off, Slow fly by, Fast fly by, and other manuevers related to the aircraft. Only Team Scale and Expert will be required to complete the dreaded flat Figure Eight.
This invitation is to encourage all members, who may be sitting on the fence to participate in this event. All participants will fly four rounds; two on Saturday and two on Sunday. This should provide plenty of time for new pilots to complete their manuevers.
SOME HOT TIPS:
Our Chief Judge is again, John Richardson who has always ran a good program with fairness. John will provide qualified judges for the event. John has once again, agreed to provide the Squadron the use of his superb PA system.
