The 2001 Western Regional Scale Masters Qualifier was again held at Apollo 11 Field in the Sepulveda Basin due to the unavailability of suitable venues in Orange County. The Scale Squadron wishes to tip it's hat to the fliers of Apollo 11 field who gave up their flying field to host this event.

Scale Squadron Commander Fred Browns was the Contest Director and was ably assisted by assistant CD Gordon Truax, Chief Judge John Richardson with

SSSC Secretary/Editor Jan Savage taking on the scorekeeping duties.

All present were entertained during a Lunchtime Flight Demo by the California Airshow Flight Team (CAFT) under the direction of George Normington. The flights by the CAFT included a pair of giant scale Cubs doing their best to perform the "Precision Collision", Dick Skoglund's ultra slow flying Mooney 231, Dan and Daren Savage's twin electric ducted fan WB-57N and Larry Wolfe's new BaE Hawk.
