North Central IMAC Contest Directors

Hi guys,

If you have an existing contest that you want re-scheduled in 2009 please let me know.
If your contest is going to be on a different weekend than it was in 2008, let me know that as well.
If your contest is not one that was on the schedule last year, the best thing to do at this time is to look at the 2008 schedule and try and pick an open weekend.
We will do our best to accomodate new contests into the 2009 schedule. I know of at least one that we want back on the schedule right now.

Weekends will fill up fast and, I'd like to try and get our schedule set early.

I do not have access to the Admin side of the IMAC website yet. That will change shortly but, this seemed like a good way to keep myself straight on the upcoming seasons contests.

You can use this to see whats been scheduled, whats open and what contests I am still waiting to hear from CD's

Re: North Central IMAC Contest Directors

Hey Wayne. Congratulations on your election to North Central Regional Director!

This zone is rapidly becoming the most contested in all of IMAC and a strong leader at the helm will help us all. Being from Ontario I know you will appreciate the number of Canadian IMAC pilots in the NC zone. I hope we will see more cross border contest registrations in the coming year and I for one plan to attend at least one and maybe two US meets next spring and summer.

I would like to see more judging seminars being sponsored by IMAC or at least have theopportunity to tap into some resources to host such an event. I have hosted 2 such seminars here in Northern Ontario and the interest it generates and the eyes it opens is wonderful. If we could perhaps have stick planes available, develop a good Aresti made simple Powerpoint cd as well as one for Judging (with videos if you want to shoot for the moon) , specific handouts etc it would make hosting such events a lot easier for me and others as well.

Re: North Central IMAC Contest Directors

Cap,

I agree.
It seems like more Canadian guys come down this way than the other way around.
Maybe we can figure out a way to get guys to go north and support more of the events up there.

Your effort on holding seminars is greatly appreciated.
Talk to Kurt Keolling and see if he can offer up some assistance on how he runs his seminars.
They are always very well received.

Re: North Central IMAC Contest Directors

Hi Wayne:
Let me add my congratulations on your election as RD for the North Central Region. I look forward to your leadership and I am available to help in whatever way I can. I also would like to stimulate more Can-Am contest attendance. In Jackson, we have been fortunate to enjoy the company of many great friends from Canada at our Mid-Michigan IMAC contest. I have also had the pleasure of flying with my friends at the Chatham contest. I'm hopefull to get to more contests in Canada in 2009.
Just to let you know, the Jackson RC Club is planning to continue the Mid-Michigan IMAC in June 2009. Also, we had such good success as the back up plan for the Great Lakes Challenge in August that the club is considering sponsoring a second IMAC contest during the 2009 season. It will be up to Joe DiDia as CD to decide where the Great Lakes Challenge will be held but if the Jackson field is not the venue for the Challenge, we may be interested in holding a second contest in Jackson. I will be meeting soon with the new Jackson RC club BOD to discuss and will let you know as soon as I know.

Again, great to have you on board as the NC-RD. Thanks for your service to all us IMAC'ers. Let me know what I can do to help.

Mike R.

Has the Scale Aerobatics Nats dates been set yet? I didn't see them on the AMA Competition Calendar.

Mike,

I have been in contact with Joe already regarding the Great Lakes Challenge.
Aug 22-23 is what I received from him as far as dates.
I appreciate the offer to help. At this point I dont know what I dont know so, if you see me needing guidance, let me know.

Wayne,
Congrats on becoming NCRD! Based on my previous experience as NCRD the hardest part of the job is scheduling contests for the upcoming season.....

We will be holding the Columbus 9th Annual IMAC Challenge on Memorial Day weekend (same weekend as the previous 8 years). That would be May 23-24, 2009.
Thanks,
Kurt

Re: North Central IMAC Contest Directors

Lee,
IMAC has developed some very nice powerpoint presentations which cover different aspects of aresti and judging/flying IMAC sequences. Tom Wheeler and I have used these (and did some upgrades for new rules cycles) over the past six years. Wayne Matthews and a small team he organized are currently working on a new powerpoint presentation that specifically covers judging criteria for each Known figure in all of the 2009 sequences (Basic through Unlimited). Hopefully that will be available in the early spring as an additional resource to help educate all of us on how to judge sequences as accurately as possible.

Tom Wheeler and I have been hosting/organizing judging seminars for the past six years in the NC region and are getting a little burned out. We told Bob Hudson this last spring and he sent some new recruits from our region to the National Judging School held in the SE region in the spring 08. Hopefully they will be organizing some of the judging school(s) in our region for spring 2009!

Re: North Central IMAC Contest Directors

Toby,
I know the Nats have been moved a couple of weeks later - sometime in mid-July, but don't know the specific dates. Can someone post specific dates for the IMAC NATS?
