Default Ringmaster Fly-A-Thon Information

The 3rd Annual Worldwide Ringmaster Fly-A-Thon weekend, Oct. 2nd and 3rd, is almost here and we hope that there will be a big turnout again this year!

If you are planning to participate this year, please reply to this post so that we can have idea of how many locations will be flying Ringmasters. Also, if you are willing to welcome others to your location to fly with you, PLEASE give your location, expected flying times.and contact information for visitors.

I will be flying my electric Baby Ringmaster on Mackinaw Island, Michigan USA. If anyone wishes to join me there, email me at: jccrall2002@yahoo.com

Hope everyone has fun and puts up a large number of Ringmaster flights!!

Dan Grill over on the Stuka Stunt C L forum says,

"I have permission to use the ball field in Force, Penna if weather is good hope to be there with my 3 versions. Anyone is welcome to come and fly is a nice large field. Dan G"

My flying buddy put two flight were put on a S-1 I salvaged out of the garbage can and repaired a couple of years ago sporting an almost new (but so poorly fitted at the factory it needs to be started with an electric starter) double thunderbolt McCoy .35. Once running, the McCoy performs OK. The compression is so poor is simply won't hand start.

10 flights today. I brought out a S-1 with a new Chinese ST G.34 running 75/25 FAI fuel. It was a screamer. That ST G.34 is a potent engine and runs very strong with no nitro.

I put in a flight at Sepulveda Basin on Saturday. I hadn't flown a Ringmaster in decades. John and Stan had their models available and there were a bunch of flyers there.

Here is an update with a few flights that were reported on forums but that were not reported to the official email address. The total is:

859!!!

Attached is a word file of the tabulations.

Thanks to all that participated. This is a statement that control line modeling is still alive and kicking!!

Next year (1st weekend in October) we will hit that GOAL of over one thousand flights in one weekend!!!!

Does that list show all the flights? I don't see the entries from the Van Nuys, CA bunch at Sepulveda Basin for Saturday and Sunday. More than a dozen were flown that I know of at the Hi Johnson Contest on a special circle.

Chris,

The Fly-A-Thon reporting has been and is a bit of a problem. Rich Grogan does the tabulation and a deadline is set so that timely feedback can be posted on the WEB but often reports are made on the various forums while not reporting to the official email address. This year I was on vacation and could not try to catch those forum reports which Rich did not receive. We want to include everyone that participates because they made the effort to join in and they deserve recognition.

Please, anyone that flew and does not find their flights recorded in the tabulation, send me an email at; jccrall@frontier.com and I will update the results!!!

Next year we will try really hard to make sure that no one is left out of the tabulation!!!

Thanks for flying in the Fly-A-Thon it is all about having fun and promoting the great sport of control line modeling!!!

John Cralley
