Default HSF Fall KC Race

Guys in our efforts to make every race as successful and fun for all that attend we are considering changing the format for the fall KC race on September 20th & 21st. As some of you know we didn't have a great turnout over all but Q40 was way down and by the end of the third round there were only 3 guys still flying. That just isn't very fun to fly in or even watch so because of that we are considering dropping Q40 on Sunday and making it a "Quickie" only weekend. The other option we are looking at is running EF1 and 426 on Saturday then 424 and 426 on Sunday. I'm just not sure that we have that many EF1 guys in the area but are willing to give it a try if we get enough interest.

So what do I need from you? First what I'd like from you guys is for you to tell me if you are planning on attending and if so which classes would you like to fly? Second, I know nothing is ever 100% until the day gets here but if you could also give me some idea of the certainty that would be great. You can email me directly at lfinchcpa-sbcglobal dot com (replace the "-" with an "@").

Just so we aren't waiting until the eleven hour to make a decision I'll but a deadline of next Tuesday (August 12th) for you to respond. That will give us about 5 weeks to get the word out on what we decide to do.

So once I get all of the responses I'll tabulate them and based on those responses we will determine what we think is the best course of action. So please respond, even if you don't fell like it. Because if you don't respond and don't like the decision that's made you have no right to ***** about it and, to steal a comment from Moe, you'll have to deal with it. LOL

Well the votes came in and it looks like the quickiees have it. We didn't have enough interest in either Q40 or EF1 so we will be running 424 and 426 on the short course both days.

I know we are a little early but if you plan on attending and want to go ahead and get your name on the list send your information over to me (name, AMA & which classes) at lfinchcpa-sbcglobal.net.

Thanks and I look forward to seeing you guys there.

The Wichita race is two weeks after the KC race, and the format as I understand it is still 424 and 426 on Saturday on the 475' course, and 424 & 422 on Sunday on the 608' course.

Lonnie can correct me if I'm wrong, but that's the normal format for an HSF race in Wichita.

Gordon normally I'd have to correct you as you are usually wrong , but in this case you are correct. The format for the Wichita race will remain as the flyer says, 424/426 Saturday and 424/422 on Sunday.

I've got the racers in the car and am ready to race.

Historically the weather has been cool and the engines run great.

I plan on practicing at the field on Thursday and Friday.

See you there!

Well another race has been put into the record books. I won't speak for everyone but I had a great time, and was a part of several great races. The weather was really good with sunny skys most of the time and low 80's on Saturday and upper 70's on Sunday. The wind was a little rough for the first few rounds on Saturday but after a front went through all smoothed out, Sunday's wind was a little stronger but it was at least a head wind on take off. Hope everyone had fun and I look forward to seeing you at future events. Here are the results of the contest.
