CVRC Visalia 2012 Drawing

All year long we have been giving everyone who flys in our monthly contest a ticket for a drawing to be held at our last event of 2012.
Two of our fellow flyers are now the proud owners of a new 3.8 xplorer and a DX18.
We would like to send a very special thank you to the two vendors who made this possible. Bob Bro at Soaring USA, Kent Nogy and Mark Taylor from Horizon Hobby. These folks are great supporters of CVRC and the hobby. Please show them your support when ever you can.
With the success of 2012 we are going to offer another drawing for the 2013 monthly contest season. So if you are looking for a chance to win something great and fly in a level 5 contest, Visalia is the place to be.
Go to <cvrcsoaring.com> for our 2013 calendar of events.

I would like to emphasize a point Chris made. Our plan from the start was 2 fold.
Generate more interest in the monthly contests, and try to make every one a LSF level 5 contest. There are so few contests a year, maybe 3 to 4? Now, we can add 12 more to the calender, hopefully! There are a lot of level 4 guys itchin' for a win.
Anyway, we're doing it again for 2013! Let's make every one a level 5 contest!

It varies from month to month. The previous months winner is the next CD. It can be a roll of the dice to determine the flight duration, or something as simple as 2-4-6-8-10. All landings scored to the tape. 1 second equals 1 point.
Pretty standard fair..... Unless Jason is in a cranky mood!

Just wondering how many rounds there are since it is a bit of a drive.

At least 5 rounds. As Mark said durations can vary, that being said we have flown as short as 5min and as long as 25min rounds. Usually depends on the day and the CD.
For you folks who live miles away try coming for a weekend that we offer a Saturday ALES and Sunday TD. We will fly this format every other month starting in February.
Always check at <cvrcsoaring.com> events calendar for any changes.
We have a confirmed xplorer 2 for the drawing. With more items come.

Winner of 3.8 Xplorer in CVRC Drawing!! First Flight!

Here are some pictures of Robert Rose flying his brand new 3.8 Xplorer for the very first time AND flying it in his very first contest with it just yesterday!

Many thanks go out to Hank Schorz who won the plane in the raffle and donated the plane to Robert after our year end raffle. Also, thanks to other CVRC club members Kent Nogy and Mark Taylor who donated parts for the plane, and last but not least Leonard Reed for the build! Robert flew this fine ship with ease AND nailed at least two "18" landings to a 20-point tape during the contest with it no less! Awesome looking plane Robert, and great flying on your part too!!
