Oakdale EF1 and Q500 Race August 26/27

Hi racers,

Back from NATS and getting ready for the race at Oakdale.

Please e-mail me at if you are planning to attend so I can set up matrix and determine fuel needs.

Please include the following:
AMA #:
list classes you plan to fly and after each class list your team mates.

We are running 424, 426 and EF1.

Note: I am low on workers so we will be doing this sort of NCPL style.
No turn light at 1 but there will be cut lights. Everyone flies 10 laps regardless of cuts. Cut moves you to back of finish unless you lap someone or someone else has a cut.

Take off pad at Oakdale taking shape. The plywood we used for the first couple of years has deteriorated so we are laying down same material as used at Riverside. Looking good. 30' long plus another 20' or so of carpet after that, so plenty long. Right now 22' wide which is a little tight for 3 lanes I think. Going out next week to add another 8' of width.


PS: The stack of hay in the background has been removed. It was below the top of pylons but would have been very intimidating flying to one!

New take off pad widened and completed. Jeff Carpenter tested it out with a few ef1 practice flights.
