Wood Crafters 2004 Scale Best of Show Award

The Wood Crafters 2004 Scale Best Of Show Award is a separate scale category, the winner is determined by popular vote from all the WC 04 contestants including those that did not fly in the Scale Competition.

Scale contestants are responsible for listing the scale planes they will be flying on a the Scale Sailplane Registration Board under their name. The Board will be located central to the Scale activity for convience.

This is where the voters will be able to learn the pilots name and the particular plane he was flying that they most like. Scale pilots may have several scale planes flying, so voters may have to ask the pilots for identification info, the pilots will be very accommodating in answering questions. A hanger area will be roped off for the safety of the planes.

A voting ballot will be located at the Registration board, the voter will write in the plane and pilots name on the ballot card and drop it in the ballot box.

Nothing but fun at Wood Crafters 2004
