ALES event in Riverside, Ca

Hi to all,

The Inland Soaring Society of Riverside, CA is going to try it once again....ALES event on Sunday, September 8th. The event will be scored Man-on-Man and I hope to get in at least 5 rounds or more. Two classes: Open and Production class. Production class is for the mass produced foamies or balsa wood models that come with a motor on the plane. Examples are the EZ-Glider, Radian, Calypso, and also Spirit E, Aspire 2-meter with motor, Gentle Lady with motor. This class is meant for the new comers, not F3X participants. Planes must have an altitude limiting/time limiting device on board. (Might have to figure out somethin for the Production class.)

I need to commit to the landowner quickly and so let me know if you are interested in this event.

Mike Lee

Yup...genuine, green, biologically correct, self growing grass. A very rare commodity in this area!

It appears that the interest level is high enough to make this a go. Now, it was solid last time until the field owners told me of their scheduling error and that killed me off. I can't predict those things, but it is the first time that has happened in the 10 years we have been using this location. As far as my plans are, I am going to hold this event on September 8.

Yes, it is I, the original Team Kamakaze pilot.

The one who flew a plane through an open air shed successfully at the Council Bluffs radio aircraft society, COBRAS, back in 1978 and got called a Kamakaze .

The one that created the "Team Kamakaze" patch for the AMA.

The team manager for Team Kamakaze Racing in RC cars...national champs!

And still trying to see how many loops I can do around the power lines at my field in one minute.

It must be me because I don't know who else might be this dumb!

So, what can I do for you?

Hi Mike,
David Roberts here, how ya doing!
I'd love to come to your event if the colander allows me to. Just finished a Mystique 2.9 for my first electic launch sailplane put I haven't had a chance to fly it yet. Had to get back to basics after flying helies for the last seven years. ( was still way cheaper the auto racing for the last 20 years!)

I live in Las Vegas and have been here for the last 24+ years so your not that far away. I would love to see you and the family again.

Okay, so let me add more sauce for the goose!

For those who did not remember this ALES event is sponsored by :

Soaring USA who has informed me that if the winning aircraft is a model sold by SUSA, they will provide that first place winner with a gift certificate worth hundreds of dollars from SUSA

There will be two single year subscriptions to Fly RC Magazine awarded

The top 5 pilots in Open class will receive Gift Certificates from Flight Comp

A limited number of shirts will be given out, courtesy of Flight Comp

As we get closer to the flight date, we may have even more prizes and goodies, and so you need to plan on being here. This is working up to be a smokin' contest!

Thanks!
Mike Lee
