Default 2012 CAJUN NATS OCT 20th & 21st

Rice Area Modelers Society started gearing up for our annual Cajun Nats pattern contest. Contest starts Saturday Oct 20th and runs thru the 21st. Field will be open for practice Friday the 19th. We have aquired a few sponsors this year and have some nice trophies, will be giving away prepaid VISA cards to entered pilots as door prises, and have 2 great meals included in the entry for pilots and their imediate families. Friday night supper and the Saturday night banquet. Lots of crawfish, catfish, and cajun sasuage. We will have concessions available at the field. Plenty of room for campers at the field, but all primative, no hook ups. See Attached flyer file.

We spent the weekend, Bar-B-Quing, sprucing up the field, and flying. What a great weekend. The field is looking really great. Be sure to get your hotel reservations early, the Rice Festival is the same weekend again this year.

The friday night menu is Catfish Coubillion. Saturday night menu is Fried Catfish with Crawfish Etoufee on top.

We will be flying the 2012 sequences.

Great to see you guy's from D3 coming. I was planning to go to the Niceville contest, but the wife has me going to the neighbor's daughters wedding that weekend. Definently will be there next year though.

We might be able to find an old tough marsh cow laying around to get a steak out of. Guess it wouldn't be too bad if we cover it in crawfish etoufee. LOL

Looking forward to seeing you guys.

Come on Arch, whats a little traveling to a world traveler like you?

The real solution is you need to move closer to Cajun country, so it won't be such a long trip.

Thanks for the support, and by the way we really enjoyed the Nats this year, you did a great job.

The weather is looking better and better.

The rice field around us has been drained and harvested. This is going to be one sweet weekend.

Great contest as usual! Monte, Jon, Chris..thank you for such a nice event! Food was excellent as was the weather.

I think Dean's purchase put the jinx on Earl's other Axial.... Awesome job though on Earl's part...landing with only half a left wing panel!
