My lady and I are in. We're going to camp at the AMA site.

Will there be typical food vending at this contest, or will it be different? Trying to plan meals and curious if we need lunches.

See you there!

I got the call from the food vendor today. He will be there for lunch selling burgers, dogs, fries, etc. I think it will be very healthy eating! Well it probably won't, but it sounds good to me!

Hello guys,

It looks like I will be able to make it provided that work does not throw me a curve ball this week. I will be flying Intermediate.

It went great! Thanks to everyone for showing up, 29 contestants. The weather was excellent, well a little windy. It's always windy in Muncie. It looks like we will make a nice donation to the WC team from the proceeds. Let's do it again next year.

It was a real nice contest. Great having that huge tent left over from a wedding for shade!
Brandon and Sean were like a class above the rest of us in Intermediate. Mike Mueller was amazing in Masters, too.
I was impressed by how smoothly everything ran...a combination of good management and contestant cooperation.

Dave,

You did a great job keeping everything going, entering scores and flew as well. Here are the results:

If anyone would like their raw scores, please PM me and I can send them to you. On the IMAC side, all contestant maneuver scores as well as the round scores are usually quickly posted to the web. Is this something that the NSRCA or District members would like? I believe it could be relatively easy to develop a common format so the data could be sent to the District VP immediately following the contest where it is verified and quickly posted to the web.

Thanks,

Ray

I'd really like it if the complete results could be posted to the web quickly, as long as it could be done without too much extra work for the people who have already donated so much time during the weekend.

I really enjoyed the contest - it was my first time to the AMA site, and what a place! My girlfriend was afraid she'd return home without me

I was skeptical of having the season finale in Muncie, but now I can't wait!

If only I could stop making major design changes to my airplane before a contest... yeah, right.

Yes! Tony and I want to put all the raw results on th NSRCA D4 web site as soon as possible after (durring) each contest. Is there a program to convert the score data directly HTML?

The data for my scoring program is in Excel spreadsheet in a database format, so it would be no problem at all to have the data available as HTML immediately after it is entered and verified (even during a contest if there is internet access). If there is a consistent format for providing the data so it could be easily posted to a web page, then that would be the best solution. See how the results are displayed on the IMAC site as an example.

Hello Matt,

Given that I only live about 50 minutes away, I am planning on attending. I have been trying to convince a couple of the guys in my club to go just for the fun of it, but unfortunately, so far, I have gotten no takers.
