Default D4 Calendar

I am ready to start planning. When and where is the best place to look?

I am happy to say that Iris had a great time at the D4 finale and is looking forward to a few more contests this year, which means I get to make it to a few more contests this year!! We are especially excited for St. Clairsville.

See you soon!

We're probably going to pick a date for St.C. tomorrow, Joe. It'll be good to have you back.

Where is the best place to see the calendar? I remember last year there was somewhere besides Nscrc->Districts->D4->D4 Calendar.

Go to the message board archive on the NSRCA site and you can get some information on a few tentative dates. I'm not sure anything is finalized yet....but we may be spending a lot of time in Muncie this year, lol.

Make sure you check the "unsanctioned" button to see all the contests. I did not have sanctioning information (I know many of the CDs are still waiting too)

CDs: If you see information that is either incorrect, or missing, please let me know so I can make the changes. I went with the best information I had at the time I entered the event. Check the contact information. My name is on there only because I put the event on the schedule, but you can be assured I will pass each one to the CD! Event fliers can be uploaded as long as the flier is in PDF or .doc format. Email me at [email protected] with changes as soon as possible.

I know things are also in the works for a possible Columbus OH contest, plus the District Finals site issue has to be resolved, but overall it looks like a great season!

Rick ask me to post the pics on my progress painting the Black Magic. Thanks for the help today Rick. The extra set of hands was greatly appreciated. The plane is all white underneath and here she is with the shot of Orange. The Black is next. Mark Atwood had some of the nicest Black Magics I've seen. This one will be similiar but with different colors.

Iwish I knew Joe. In the Dec. 2011 K-Factor, Dave Johnstone mentions the field may not be available. There really wasn't any specific information. But he reserved Muncie for Sept 29-30 so if Hebron is not available, D4 wouldn't have to try to scramble for a site late in the season I guess. I haven't heard any other news regarding this situation, which is why I posted it that way.

Hi,

I did not see the TORK's contest listed. It normally takes place in early June. Is it being replaced by the NATs warm up?

The TORKS lost their field, Teo. They put an access road to the landfill arcoss one end of the runway. Ron and Douane are working on a contest at another location.

Hmm. I'll see what I can find out. Technically it's my 'club' although being about an hour away, I'm not very in tune with the politics.
