Tangerine Soaring Championship - Nov. 25th & 26th

Tangerine Pre-Announcement

Its early yet but I wanted to give everyone a heads up on
Tangerine2006 to be held in Orlando, Florida November 25th and
26th. (Weekend after Thanksgiving Day)

This year we will be running the contest in a seeded Man-on-man
format. Saturday we will host two events - unlimited and 2meter. On
Sunday we will have two events also - unlimited and RES. Pilots
will be classified into two groups: Sportsman/Expert and
Masters. There will be awards for the first three places in each
event for each pilot classification.

The events will be flown with separate groupings. 2meter will fly in
groups against other 2meters while Unlimiteds will fly in groups
against other unlimiteds. A pilot may choose to enter two events on
the same day. Just keep in mind that pilots are expected to fly and
time for someone else in each round, in each event. Flying two
events will keep a guy plenty busy.

Because of the man-on-man format we will be requesting
pre-registration so that we can work out frequency conflicts before
the contest. We will accept duplicate frequencies as long as they
are not in the same event. We will limit the entry to 40 per
event. I do not expect this to be an issue - but we can hope
attendance is that good!

I will be doing the coordinating to work out frequency conflicts. We
want to accommodate everyone! I'll post more information as we get
closer to opening registration.

Thanks!

Atta Boy Rick, welcome to the dark side. This shakes em'up everywhere it is tried. I am going to try to make it down there if possible, might be a long shot, but I will try. Glad to see others making the move.

Sorry to hear that you will be using seeded man on man format this
year. I will probably be in Tampa that weekend visiting my
daughter's family but won't bother to drive over to Orlando for a
seeded man-on-man contest. I have fond memories of the original
Tangerine when it was held on December 30 and 31 and was a truly
national contest second only to the SOAR Nats drawing snowbird fliers
from all over snow country as far west as Colorado along with many
contestants from Texas.
