    Hollister, Ca. contest Sept 15 & 16

    Hey west Coasties,

    There is an AMA pattern contest at Hollister, Ca on September 15th & 16th. They are hosting Classic Pattern at this contest. Show up if you can make it, and support classic pattern out here on the west coast.

    RE: Hollister, Ca. contest Sept 15 & 16

    As Robert said, "hey, we're going to fly Classic at an AMA contest" OK, maybe he didn't say that but that is what I am planning on. This is our 9th annual Bob "Whip" Whitacre pattern contest at the Wavemasters field in Hollister CA. We will be flying all AMA pattern classes and FAI. I also want to fly classic, I would like to know what classes of Classic people would want to fly. I know we have 3 or 4 coming who will be flying Masters but i am not sure who might want to fly another class. Please let me know. My goal is to fly 6 rounds of AMA pattern and 4 rounds of Classic.

    FYI - I am planning on using the following CPA patterns http://www.classicpatternassociation...call_cards.pdf

    Thanks,

    Hi Jon
    i am going to try and make this one, i plan to fly either the phoenix 8 or the tiporare in classic and my 2 meter plane in sportsman
    the tipo will easily fly the masters pattern but i may be better suited flying the advanced pattern, but ifthere wont be many others flyingi would opt to fly masters with you guys
    i think i can do most of those manuevers and its just for fun right?
    did you get your phoenix done?
    i'll just have to go figure out what a rolling triangle and a square eight looks like.

    Dave - If you can make it to Hollister we can go over any pattern you want! We will have at least two in Classic Advanced so you will be fine. I have been flying the Phoenix for a while. It's loads of fun!

    You are correct. It's all for fun!

    Thanks,

    My thanks to all who flew Classic! I think it worked out great.

    Frank Capone is planning on Classic at his AMA pattern meet also. Frank runs the Bud Garric Pattern Classic which is on October 6th & 7th this year. I will be there hoping to fly my Angel in AMA and my Phoenix 7 in classic!

    CPA guys,

    Look for a report on this event (Hollister) in the upcoming CPA newsletter. I will post some more here soon. I may be a city boy, but I do things at country fried speed.
