Default 2004 Sportsman sequence?

I plan to start competing in IMAC next year. I've been flying for 15 years but have never competed so I plan to tackle the sportsman class. Does anyone know when the 2004 sportsman sequence is due to come out? Or is it the same one as 2003? A member of my club though the sequences were good for 2 consecutive years but he wasn't sure.

2004 will be out around mid December. IMAC sequences changes every year.

If it is like the past two years, they will announce sequence submitions mid-late november Then the board will finalize it down to three choices for each class. All CURRENT IMAC members will be allowed to vote for one sequence in the class they plan to fly. The winners are announced Christmas Eve (nice Christmas present for all!)

Hope this helps.

Get a copy of the flying and judging guide and read it throughly. This will help you understand how the maneuvers need to be scored, which will improve your presentation.

Hi Ryan

Since we "IMAC" base our seq on the fullsize, we have to wait for them to come up with there seq's for next year.. The IMAC Seq committie has ours out usually the start of January

Thanks for all the info guys.

Geistware, I have already downloaded & read the flying & judging guide. Interesting reading to say the least. I hope I can remember all that in the air!

Keith,
The problem is, many folks don't KNOW if they are current IMAC members as they have never received a response back on their membership application.

I flew one Basic comp this year and brought home a first place. Like you, I'll be doing Sportsman next year.

It's not hard to internalize the judging criteria if you apply it to all your flying. Even when you're "boring holes in the sky" you can think about it. My everyday flying has become sequence and judging focused. It has the added benefit of focusing my attention and increasing my personal flying pleasure.

I'm also eagerly awaiting the new sequence.

WHat I do is pick a maneuver that I have remember the judging criteria and then fly it. You will be amazed that even though you know what to do, doing it is another think entirely. What is has taught me is how to realize how I have screwed up and I am learning how to recover with the least amount of points removed.
