foamie contest 2008 INFO only ... POST NO "contest" here

Contest Attitude

Contest conflict clash is human nature
IF clash should just maybe happen to occur
I suggest, take one giant step back, re-read

Winner(s) is/are not chosen by;
You
Me
or
Any single event

I will scold negative criticism and/or bashing one time
second time I will petition mods to delete you post
third I will petition mods for your ban.

‘rcgroups.com’ is a public forum, it is in no way affiliated with this contest.

Poll closed.
To my knowledge there is no way to lock results once thread reopened.
SSOOOOO results may change.
Please note there were >64< official ballots cast.


Most Original
Most Unlikely to fly that actually flies
Best Travel Plane
Biggest foamy
Heaviest Payload Comp
Multi Motor Design

Will the owner / creator and/or modifier
please goto poll thread
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...t=795121&page=3
and claim your winner.

This will have no impact on your contest status.

I need a set of Official Contest Guide Lines for each category.

Hummmm how do we keep him on rally and
meet a deadline 72 hours from close of this poll?

He may call for volunteers.
This will have no impact on their contest status.

The poll thread is your workspace for such purpose.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...t=795121&page=3

I suggest, create a central post (one for each cat) then edit back to it.
Please keep all ‘cat’ posts on poll thread.

You guys will have FULL and FINAL SAY until I copy and paste (not edit) your camera-ready document to the official 2008 Contest Guidelines. I will then assume responsibility for said document, take owner and volunteer off the hook, and announce start date.

We have less than 72 hours before the fun begins

To quail future flapX ;

1) I see no reason to curb latecomers, given his build did not precede start date.

2) I see no reason to limit number of models entered in this contest.

3) I see no reason to restrict one or more models entered in more than one category.

4) My lawyer advised;
all published material associated with this contest becomes his.
Think I need a new lawyer?
No, I doubled his retainer.

When is the end date and when will we know?

Then a final final threat started with each first place cat winner listed as a poll option, all rcgroup members and sponsors may vote.

What's the point of defining materials in such detail? I may not know the final materials at this point and I might change my mind as the build progresses.


Define strut / support / brace / bracket / motor mount / push rod / control horn
1) Any such as bamboo, carbon, metal, balsa, etc

Same as above.... What does it matter so long as I build a foamie?


Contesr Categories ...more will appear soon…

Is the contest catagories closed or what?

Will there be a best of show 2008? Seems like there should be one chosen from among the five winners. Bob

So, where is the Thread for " Most Original " ?

I have officially started the Development Phase of My " X1 Death Adder UAV "

I started cutting the fuselage out of ready board from Dollar Tree making the Rib sections for rigid strength to the body.. taping everything I cut and taking measurements.. When I'm comfortable with how it all fits... I will modify my original plans to fit the development. I will then take it apart piece by piece and re cut out of Bluecor fan fold 1/4 in.

I have never done this Foamy stuff.. hell I have never flown an RC Plane and here I am throwing my luck at actual RC flight.. Developing an out standing design if I may say so..

It looks like something Skunk Works would be making for our troops..

You will see.... Hopefully, I can pull this off and finish it on time..


But, Where is the Thread I'm entering this thing in..?

We will consolidate here on this thread.

I apologize and accept responsibility for the bouncing-ball concept (Growing Pain # 101).

Thanks for the help guys.




Category Guide Line status to date;


Will_Rock has big week end plans and choose to kick off his
“The Travel Plane Competition thread is open for business here:”
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...027#post8856640
Thanks WillRock

Looks like Rusty-Gunn is ready to go with his
Multi Engine Category
Rusty kick it off when ready or let me know and I will do it.
Thanks Rusty

leadfeather wow two cats
Biggest Foamy
and
Most Unlikely to Fly
Appear ready, kick-em off or let me know, I will.
Thanks-Thanks leadfeather

Wingnut31 has Most Original well in tow.
Thanks 31
((don't know how I missed it my fault))
(bouncing ball 101 )

Looks like I will have to call on volunteers for our
Heavest Paylod guide lines….

Any takers?

This will in no way impact you or anyone’s contest status.
IF you choose, I will launch contest thread, either way you may enter this or any other category or all the above.

IF the hounds bark up my backside again I will assume this cat and off we go no problem.

Thanks again guys for all the help.

YES, “The Travel Plane Competition thread is open for business here:”

Thanks again Will

The early bird gets the best hanger space.

I noticed a few contest threads posted, so it begs this question, simply because I failed to take note: Did we get official permission?
