    Please get your Nat's Participation Form completed and send it in ASAP.

    Important Notice:

    Please be advised that the Nat’s will be conducted according to the SA Rules as they are written with no deviation or waivers. Please understand that in the past our neighbors at the National Flying Site have complained about the noise of our aircraft. So the Nat’s team (in agreement with the Nat’s Management Staff) will be conducting,
    General Rule, 5. Scale Aerobatic Sound Limits:

    Rule 5.3: Ground Sound Level Test.

    Prior to flying the first round of a contest; each competition model must pass the Ground Sound Level Test. The Ground Sound Level Test must be completed at the sanctioned contest site by the Contest Director or his/her designee. Testing shall be done in an area designated by the Contest Director and may be completed prior to or during the first round. Models successfully completing the test will not be measured again during the contest unless their sound level is deemed to have increased significantly since the initial check by the Contest Director. Any plane that fails the test will not fly, but will be moved to the back of the flight order, and allowed one more attempt to pass the test. Any model that fails the second test will zero all judged sequences he would have flown during the current round. Any model that fails the second test may be tested again during future rounds with the same Ground Level Sound Test criteria being applied. No model will fly any judged sequences at any Scale Aerobatics contest until it passes the Ground Sound Level Test.

    This notice allows ample time to comply with this rule before the Nat’s. Help preserve our flying fields by making your models quiet as possible.

    “All of our planes can be made to be even quieter than they are, even yours.”

    Regards,

    RE: Scale Aerobatic Nat's Participants

    With 31 pilots it would seem we can have the whole group fly at one flying site and run two lines. I wonder what the management will come up with. Soon we will know.

    So Cali

    RE: Scale Aerobatic Nat's Participants

    Hmmmmm..........

    The "Official NATS Entry Form" says the following:


    RC Scale Aerobatics – July 5 - 8, 2010
    - Jr/Free
    - Sr basic registration fee plus $20
    - Open basic registration fee plus $65
    - If paying after June 15, 2010 fees will be Jr/Free, Sr $75
    plus basic registration fee, Open $165 plus basic
    registration fee
    - NO entries or refunds after June 25, 2010

    Reading that last line, I thought everyone had until June 25 to register.

    RE: Scale Aerobatic Nat's Participants

    To all SA NATS participants, the initial pilot’s meeting will be held Sunday July 4Th at 6:00PM on site 3. I encourage everyone to attend however it is not mandatory. Banquet tickets will be for sale at this meeting.


    Below is a list of pertinent information:
    • Unlimited and Advanced will use site 3 (show center) two flight lines. (Subject to change)
    • Intermediate and Sportsman will use site 4 (rear site) two flight lines. (Subject to change)
    • Flight order established at the 8:00AM Monday morning pilot briefing.
    • Pilot briefing held on the site to which you are assigned.
    • Wheels up immediately after pilot briefing.
    • Scores will be posted after each round. (Thursday rounds will be held until finalist are announced)
    • No UNKNOWNS for Monday July 5Th (we will fly as many known rounds as possible).
    • Banquet tickets available for purchase (See score runners, Cheryl and Tina).
    • We will not be enforcing Scale Aerobatics General Rule 5 Sound Limits (see below for sound enforcement rules). All other rules apply!
    • Concessions will be on site (arranged by AMA).
    • It will be hot so please stay hydrated.
    • Tuesday’s unknown will be handed out at end of day Monday pilot’s briefing and flight order will be established.
    • After hours, please feel free to mingle throughout the campus and get to know your fellow pilots.
    • Please obey all traffic signs while on AMA property.
    • The rest we will play by ear.


    Scoring;

    Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday scores will follow SA Rules and Regulations. See General Rule 15. Determining Placement (also see Contest Guide 4 Appendix A “Drop Table”)

    Thursday final’s pilots will be flying one round of knowns and TWO unknowns.

    Weighting for finals will be 33% carrying in from first three days, 33% known round, and 33% unknowns

    And then theres FREESTYLE! Get signed up!

    www.mini-iac.com/Portals/0/Download..._Rev_4.pdf

    Results:

    • Highest known finals sequence normalized.
    • Highest unknown finals sequence normalized.
    • Normalized score from preliminary rounds.

    Summary;
    The sequence committee has worked very hard to supply us with sixteen freshly written unknowns. Please be sure to thank our sequence committee for their commitment to our sport. Monday we will fly as many known rounds as possible to try and stay ahead of Mother Nature. Unknowns will be handed out at the pilots briefing at the end of day Monday and Tuesday. Finalist will be announced and the final two unknowns will be handed out at the end of the banquet (held at the Horizon Center Wednesday night) and flight order will be established.

    Banquet
    • Tickets cost TBA. (6/23)
    • 6PM to 7PM serving cocktails (mingling encouraged)
    • 6:45PM Short introductions by Kent Porter (event director)
    • 7PM Buffet Dinner starts serving

    • 8:45PM Announcement of finalist and hand out final unknowns
    • 9:30PM Closing remarks / Kent Porter
    • Cash bar closes @ 11:30PM
    • We have to be out of the center by 11:59PM
    • Please be sure to obey the no smoking policy while in the Horizon Center.


    SOUND ENFORCEMENT RULES;

    Listed below are the purposed 2011 AMA Scale Aerobatics Sound Rules which will govern the 2010 Scale Aerobatics NATS:
    5.4. In-Flight Judging Criteria for Known and Unknown Sequences
    Judges will evaluate each individual sequence flown in its entirety for overall sound presentation. Each judged Known and Unknown sequence, shall have one “figure” added to the end of the score sheet after individually judged maneuvers. This figure shall be known as the Sound Score. The Sound Score will have a K value dependent on the class flown. Individual class K values are:

    - Unlimited 15 K
    - Advanced 12K
    - Intermediate 9K
    - Sportsman 6K
    - Basic 3K.

    The sound score will be scored on a scale of 10 to 0 with 10 denoting “Very Quiet” and the low end of the scale toward zero denoting “Very noisy”. Whole points will be used for scoring. This sound score will then be multiplied by the K value for the individual class and included in the total flight score for the sequence. Note that each judge’s score is independent of the other(s) and no conferencing on the sound score is required.
    If a pilot receives a sound score of three (3) or less for the same sequence from two or more judges, the pilot will be notified of the problem and will be requested by the Contest Director prior to the next round to adjust or modify the aircraft in order to reduce the sound level. If that pilot, after notification, again receives a sound score of three (3) or less for the same sequence from two or more judges, that pilot will be disqualified from further competition at that contest.


    Note: I ask all pilots that are on site Sunday to please make arrangements to ground sound test your planes. This is for data collection only. Thank you for your participation in this task.
