Anyone up for Chicagoland?

Hey guys, just curious as to who's all going to the Chicagoland IMAC in Chicago. Heard the field is beautiful, and is an awesome place to fly. I think (if I remember right) it is Mike Bargman's (I said it right Barge-man) home field. Got any pics Mikey? I am pretty sure my dad and I are going to try and make it, possibly come up one or two days early depending on our schedule . . .

Actually Seth, I think this field is one that everyone should experience at least once! I,m proud to say my home field, as well as Dan Knippen, Mike Bargman, and Dave Genovese. They have bleacher seats where you can sit, a soda machine, port-a-pottis, a play area for children, 2 barbecue pits, paved runway, working electricity, and get this, sattelite TV. That's right, sattelite TV.

Re: Anyone up for Chicagoland?

Seth,
Thanks for getting the ball rolling and the positive comments from everyone. Were expecting a pretty large crowd, and in past contest at the other field, weather permitting we always get in three flights on Saturday. Freestyle will be on Saturday and Sunday one Unknown and Known hopefully we can get on the road early. Camping on-site but no hookups.
You can preregister at the Imac web site top right corner.
Thanks

Re: Anyone up for Chicagoland?

Hello-

This will be my first contest. Looking forward to it (and a little nervous)! I'll be flying basic. I see there are already 8 pilots pre-registered in that class, so it should be some good competition. I know they are having an IMAC clinic on the 4th, but unfortunately I won't be able to make it to that.

I have a couple of questions:

Is it a good idea to judge during your first contest? Is it best to just concentrate on your flights and not worry about judging, or does judging get your mind on something else and keep you busy between flights? I don't know how much down-time there is between rounds.

Should I judge? I went to the judging seminar in '06. The flying portion of the seminar was cut short due to rain, so I don't have a whole lot of practice at judging. Though, I guess the only way to get experience is to do it! As long as I am consistent in my judging throughout the contest. I've been trying to read (and re-read) the Flying and Judging Guide as much as I can lately.

What would I be judging? Sportsman?

Also, I didn't see any times mentioned...When will it start ,and how early do most of you like to arrive before the start of a contest?

Thanks for your help,

Doug

Oh, and yes, Diamond's is on the other side of town. For some reason, they don't have any windows in the place...

Re: Anyone up for Chicagoland?

Doug, get there at about 7am to start setting up and relaxing. I don't think you should judge the first contest. Concentrate on having some fun first and learn the ropes before you start judging. We'll have plenty of people to judge. You would be judging sportsman, but I'd recommend sitting this one out I think. Other than that, you're fine. We'll talk.

Doug,
Glad to see you'll be here for your first Imac. As far as judging you will not have to judge or fly Unknowns. If anything you might be ask to scribe for a round.
We would like to start Pilots Meeting around 9:00 the contest should start by 9:30 . Get there early so you can get set and put your game face on.
Also there are more people that have not registered. There will be plenty of people there to help the new Pilots.
Dan
