Default Report - National IMAC Judging School - Mesa, AZ (26-27 Jan 2013)

The U.S. National IMAC Judging school took place in Mesa, AZ this past weekend (26-27 January 2013). There was a good turnout despite the rainy weather that eliminated the practical flight judging on Sunday. Pictures below show the format, great venue (Arizona Regional Hospital) and some of the familiar faces that were there to instruct, to learn and to just talk about IMAC.

There are still many schools planned for this Winter / Spring for 2013, so find one in your local area and join in! Link for all of the regions events following the pictures. Enjoy!

You can find judging schools at the links below for your region, check two or more regions if you live on the borders of that area.

Online Judging School if you just can't make it in person, and/or want a good refresher: http://www.mini-iac.com/Training/tabid/121/Default.aspx

North West: http://www.mini-iac.com/RegionsNA/No...1/Default.aspx

South West: http://www.mini-iac.com/RegionsNA/So...9/Default.aspx

North Central: http://www.mini-iac.com/RegionsNA/No...3/Default.aspx

South Central: http://www.mini-iac.com/RegionsNA/So...5/Default.aspx

North East: http://www.mini-iac.com/RegionsNA/No...1/Default.aspx

South East: http://www.mini-iac.com/RegionsNA/So...2/Default.aspx

Look at the www.mini-iac.com website for all the info you could want on scale aerobatics competition!

Specifics: A large stick plane is quite useful for teaching at a judging school, especially when there is a larger classroom.

Specifics: Depending on the registration prior to a judging school, an appropriately sized venue will be required. Look for low or no-cost places in public areas or places that are willing to loan the space. Chairs and tables make visitors/students feel at home.

Specifics: One point that had to be made several times was finally described with a drawing on the white board. Line lengths must be equal, maneuvers in between are considered one group. Individual elements of that group do not have to occupy the same amount of space (i.e. snap and half roll).
