Anyone at the Carnation event - are spectators welcome?

One of the guys from my club is thinking of riding his motorcycle down tomorrow to check it out, but he is not sure he will be able to get in.

Oh - and will he need to get there before 9 or will later work?

SASS Event

Drove over a hour to attend this event but was meet with a locked gate and no club attended or signs posted. Sad as it would have been a chance to promote the hobby and see a few world class flyer perform.

Sorry you couldn't make it in, someone with the farm had put a towel on the sensor and the gate was open alot. It's had to see the gate from the flying field and we were all looking up. TCMAA has an event every month, check the first page of this thread and come see us. If we are there the gate is open to visitors.

As I posted on another thread, just in case someone doesn't watch the ELSF thread.

Thanks for coming up. we are still talking about the great times we had this weekend. My 15 year old son even said it was a really great weekend. Half way home he woke up and saying "SIX minutes, SIX minutes", he was dreaming of flying ALES. Doesn't get better than that!

Unfortunately when you asked everyone was at the field. The flying field is on a secure site due to the children's camp that leases the property to the club. The camp dictates whether the gate is open or closed. The SASS web page had contact details for the C.D. and she did have her phone with her. Like Duke said come on down to Littlerock to the next TCMAA event, but bring a plane with you. After watching for a few minutes you will be sorry if you don't. The ALES format does not have a lot of complicated rules. Fly the time task and land on the spot.

Hang on... You're supposed to both fly the time task *AND* land on the spot! So that's what I was doing wrong!

More seriously, I had a great time this past weekend, even with all of my zero landing points. It was great seeing all of the TCMAA folks there!

It was a great time. I really hope this becomes an annual contest. The SASS sight is amazing. The whole weekend could not have gone better, 22 entries for both days, great conditions, Good food, and a lot of new friends! Maybe next year without schedule conflicts we can grow the contest and more people can experience this great venue.

3 to California and the rest stayed home. Larry won both days. Merrill was second on Saturday and 4th on Sunday. I don't have Saturdays results so you will have to wait for them. Here are Sundays. They are combined 2m and open, I included aircraft as best as I can remember.
Some things that I found cool in the results-We flew 5 rounds with one throw out so there was 4200 possible points. Larry missed a perfect day my 1 meter! Josh put both of his planes in the top 5! Eric's 7th was with a plane that he had never flown before following the crash of his primary plane. Mike Hughes in 10th in his second contest after moving up from his radian after 2 contests.
