Default Central CA Scale Qualifier @ Madera, CA

The Madera M.A.R.C.S club is hosting the Central Scale Qualifer for Scale Masters. It is going to be held August 28-29th. We have a shaded pit area and have room for easy-ups also. We will have BBQ's for lunch and Saturday night a TriTip Dinner. Our runway is 150' X 1500'+ with a large flyover area. We are easy to get to right off of the 99 Freeway. There are many Hotels and Motels that are very close. Camping on site but no hookups with stores just down the street.

Info at http://www.maderarcclub.org/ and also http://www.usscalemasters.org/forums/

I just sent Randy a note to provide my RSVP for attending the event..

He was asking if those interested could reply by July 31.. Since I have not seen a lot of posts back, I figured I'd put up a reminder/bump..

Hope to see a good group at the field..

Thanks Tom, there has been emails directly to me but thanks for the reminder. See you all there.

By the way Hobby People sent me a Airtronics 8 Channel 2.4 Radio with Reciever and charger for the Qualifier. Everyone entered will get a ticket and a winner will be chosen during awards. Good Luck to all!

Here is an update for the Qualifier. I recieved a call today that Scale Masters is offering for this event that so long as you are not already pre qualified for 2010 and you Qaulify at this event you will have your choice for competing at Scale Masters for 2010 or 2011. This is a great offer by them and gives competitors an early Qualifier for next year. See you all there it is getting close now should be great.

I have been recieving emails and calls concerning that I had closed off registration for the event July 31st. This is not the case registration is still open even on Saturday. I want to give everybody a chance. I wanted or needed an idea on what the attendance is going to be to make sure that I had enough staff but it looks like I am going to have a good group of volunteers to help out. By the calls and emails we are going to have a good turnout and you will not be turned down if you sign up Saturday so good luck and and see you there. If you have any questions don't hesitate to call or email.

One more thing I forgot to mention. If you have a shade (EZ-UP, First-UP you get the idea) would recommend bringing it. The temp has not been bad but direct sunlight does feel on the warm side. We do have shaded areas next to the pit but more is better.

It looks like there will be no possiblitiy of your gun sights melting. The weather man says that Saturday and Sunday will be in the mid eighties. Perfect Scale Masters weather.

The competition was very tough. It looks like I just made it by the skin of my teeth!
Actually I got lucky as I had no competition in my class, so it is a hollow victory[].
A very well run event given that it was the first time the club did it! The judges were very good.

Here is a pic of my little 40 size P-51. The ankle biter!

Corey great meeting you and proof that big isn't necc. to do well at a Qualifier. Though you did not have any competitors in your class didn't change your flight scores which were very high. Some think that it is only for the big planes but you and Tom Berg showed them otherwise. Again hope to fly with you guys someday it was fun and I really enjoyed meeting you all. Here is the start of some of the pics more to come these are some that were emailed to me by club member. I have a couple of hund more to go through on my laptop yet.

Here is a film from the event and though I wish every plane that attended was in the film it is still good. I have to say that the pilots all did very well even though they had to deal with a bad crosswind caused by a low pressure system that started on Friday and went through the whole weekend but it also gave us very nice temps to fly in. The Tri-Tip was outstanding.

Great pictures of a great event. Hats off to all of the members, workers and judges that helped make this a first class event. Always great to do battle in the air with friends. Already looking forward to next year.

Randy:

Fantastic job with the camera!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Did you ever rest?????????????? Over 600 photos posted on the USScalemasters web site. Thanks for recording what seemed to be a flash in time while we were flying. I know all of us that have pictures thank you for the chance to re-live the weekend with our friends at home.

Thanks again.

No it wasn't me with the camera I didn't have the time but Gayle and Ron did a fantastic job. Both are MARCS members and are always there to help. It was a bunch of fun and learned a lot to make it even better.
