Wood Crafters 07 Championship Contest will include a modified Nostalgia Class and 2M unl, RES 104, RES unl and Unlimited classes.

May 26 - 27, 2007

Class Designation ..................

Class A 2meter unlimited
Class B 104" or less RES
Class C RES unlimited
Class D Unlimited
Class E Nostalgia 100 inch or less
Class F Nostalgia Unlimited

Enter any number of the classes, rounds will be flown in time windows, so it will be up to you to get all your flights in. Choose the number of classes wisely, the round could end before you have finished flying all your chosen classes. This also means "do not delay the launch line" and cause someone to miss there flights because after you hooked up, you stood at the winch rather than launching immediately.

The important thing to consider is entering the number of classes you will have time to finish. Window time will be based on number of size class entries. Example, I'm going for all the classes, but I may have to drop some if we have a large turn out.

The winning Grand Champion points will be based on the total of any three of the Class A through Class D size classes you designate prior to the start of the contest.

There will be a Nostalgia Champion trophy for those that choose to compete in both Nostalgia size classes. The top points accumulated both days in both Nostalgia size classes wins the trophy.

Hope you can sign up for Wood Crafters 2007 and enjoy flying with your fellow woody buddies. Sign up only on last years ch.
