Do Unlimited and RES/NOS/2M overlap on the 8th, or is it supposed to be 8/9-8/10?

I'm betting Wally meant to type 8/9-8/10

IRCHA is a week later, too?

Dave,
Two schedules were proffered by the AMA. One with "Pattern" and one "W/O Pattern". Both schedules kept us in the same week. There is nothing on either schedule after us. We are with FF which we have been for a while. Immediately preceding us with two days of overlap on 8/3-8/4 is ROCKETS. Before that is something called JAMBOREE. Before that HELI NATS which overlaps with ROCKETS.

As the AMA Council does not meet until November I am letting folks know the tentative schedule. Communication is better I feel. By the way all the nice hotels are pretty booked in Muncie during our event week. I don't know what is going on out there.

Questions folks?
Wally

I think it looks like a pretty awesome schedule and look forward to doing at least one event.

Thanks, Wally.

Just got tired at Site 4 when we were made to feel like we were in the way of the heli guys. It now sounds like a better deal.

Thanks for a much more friendly schedule! F3K then F5J then Unlimited. More time to spend time with my friends and more evening meals.

As soon as the schedule is set in stone, it sounds like my reservations should be made.

Thanks for your efforts to date, Wally.

The "Jamboree" is IRCHA ... typically follows the Heli Nats and their relatively poor attendance then the IRCHA Jamboree starts and the place overflows ...

There's an Ironman event that sometimes overlaps part of the Nats ... lots of folks will end up staying out of town to get rooms if you don't get them sooner ...

Ooh which Ironman. That actually may make it easier to convince the wife to go up that way.

I would say one of the worst things I can possibly imagine is doing an Iron Man in July or August Muncie heat/humidity but you are probably used to worse heat/humidity in Florida so maybe it would be considered nicer weather for you.

They're my wife's thing now. I gave up on the triathlon thing to work on my RC body.
