Just a reminder, to be 'officially' signed up, you need to register at so that I have your current vital info.
If you don't get a reply from me, you may have ended up in my humongous spam folder--not a pleasant place to be--what with all the Nigerian royalty and offers of free money and 'member enhancements' that reside there. So give me a shout--here or by email.
Regards, Richard the Registrar

Edit 7-13-2021: I just discovered a perennial victim struggling in the bottom of my spam folder (Skyler, are you ok?)
So, please if you don't see your name on the list above, or haven't gotten an email response from me regarding registration, please ping me again--on this site is fine.

Covid Report
In case you haven't heard, New Mexico has opened up quite a bit, thanks to our state governmental efforts--NM is in the top five state rankings (by a number of standards, including #1 for vaccine distribution) for control of the virus. Hotels and restaurants have also been opening up and are looking forward for your business. So currently, if you are fully vaccinated at least two weeks before, you should be able to go maskless at the BAM, as well as at most venues around the state.
So come out of hiding and and come out and enjoy the New Mexico sunshine and the great contest we have been pulling together. Sign up at
See you soon!

Thread OP
For Everyone's Information:

Attached below is a copy of the F5J rules we will be applying to the BAM. They are dated 2021, and we have rehearsed our scoring system with them. There will be a copy on site, during the contest.

We visit the Balloon Fiesta Park nearly every day during the summer (best flying site in the 4-Corners States!), and it is in excellent shape. The staff fully supports model airplane flying, and there are no events sharing the field with us (so far) during the weekend of the BAM.

Read and enjoy!

Yours, Greg
