It's impossible to say at this point.
There were so many unfamiliar faces at the last sWARm.
It is definitely safe to say that the South was well represented by the Sod Farm and Art Dye regular flyers. The Yankees were somewhat well represented from what I could tell by recognizing the few that I know.

Even if not for a mass launch, we should probably do some kind of line up just to see how evenly both sides are represented.

I think this thing has evolved into the largest RC event in the state.
If not, it's definitely the largest FREE RC event in the state.

One of the only rules in combat is the one that walks away with the biggest smile wins.
At the sWARm it's usually a tie on the number of smiles so we count teeth.
That's probably why the South wins every year.

We have a higher tooth per smile ratio

Better yet - do the limbo with all the cool pilots (South) flying through the limbo from the south and all the less than stellar pilots (North) flying through from the north. You'll get plenty of head ons. I guarantee it!

(And if you don't get enough head ons take this ad in for a free suit.)

You are making the assumption a yank could fly through the limbo...........

Ah, yes, funnel the potential carnage to increase actual carnage. I'm liking this.

Well, that would involve the South (Rebels) being able to count that high.
