S.A.M. contest photos

Somewhat regularly for the last 9 years I've gone to the Society of Antique Modelers portion of the Southwest Regionals Model Airplane Contest, now at Eloy, AZ. The main contest, a free-flight event, is now in it's 64th year. Within the SWR is the separate SAM event.

I've dabbled with building and flying old timers as far back as 1980 but these days mostly putter about and taking pictures. Anyway, I thought you all might enjoy seeing the pictures from yesterday (Saturday). It's a nice event, the weather was near perfect, although the attendance was a bit sparse.






The rest of the pictures are here. If you poke around a bit you'll find SAM event pictures going back to 2005.
