Lobster "Combat" returns.


No not real lobsters fighting on a table.
I tow a crepe paper streamer back and forth. You cut it you win a lobster roll on me!
This year you need to bring some head protection. I'll leave it up to you . I wear a hardhat at work, But a motorcycle or batting helmet or similar sounds good. You be the judge here.

Last year I made Maine lobster rolls. ( Cold and mayo) This year I'm leaning towards Connecticutt lobster rolls.

Rules
1. The Towplane is Sacred. !
2. I make the rules.
3. Dan Landis can't win more than two rolls per flight. May impose a weekly max too.
4. Aircraft should be Park Pilot-ish size and weight.
5. Have fun, see rule 1. Always.

FPV guys , we're working on a shelter for you tosit under.

I had a blast holding Lobster Combat last year and even found some sponsors when I ran out of lobster!
Hobbyking practically donated a 9 ch radio directly to Adam L for his good aim . Participation prizes on Sat were supplied by Futaba via Dan Landis.
A big thanks to those guys!
Nothing ever set in stone but I will try to have round one on Monday somewhere between 3 and 5 pm. Move to around 5 - 5:30 rest of week with Tom's blessing.

If you have questions or have picture from last year please post them.

Al

What's a Connecticut style roll Al? I'm from Maine (South Portland) so to me a lobster roll is cold with onion and Miracle Whip on a hot buttered grilled roll!

True but I was a stones throw from Cape Elizabeth which IS Maine.

Pete, you are right. Some areas have resisted those 'from away' and remain largely unchanged.

Rob, what would a good prize be for you, should you happen to win @ Lob Combat?
I know you aren't allergic to alcahol, at least early in the evening. LOL

That was my thought but a cold beer from Al also sounds pretty good too

Yes, I'll readily admit I like my Knob Creek - good campfire bourbon

Al, make sure you stop by the tent for a taste.
