Contest
Medford Madness

Hello Everyone,
This is Jeff the CD. for the contest. I was wanting to get opions on having a three day contest
instead of two. Some of the reasons being are , the weather can be iffy that time of year and they extra day could make the differance between the contest counting or not. Another would be for a lot of people this contest is the farthest one travled to . So if a person doesnt fly freestyle they can either leave Sat. night and get a good jump on the day to get home, and be in good shape for work Mon. morning. We would have a longer time to have more fun. One of the big things for me is that everyone is in such a hurry to get on the road on Sun. afternoon. And that makes for one heck of a Monday. It would be safer for the long distance drivers. I could go on and on. I can not make evereyone happy no one ever can. We have until next Fri. the 3rd. of Feb. Then I will decide on Sat. and we will go from there. Thanks for all of your input.IT IS GOING TO BE A GREAT YEAR. Thanks again . Jeff

I was planning on attending this year, my vote would be for Saturday/Sunday but I will probably come either way.

I see you point on having an extra day for weather but all we need is one good day to make a contest . As much as I like a good freestyle show I would rather show up thursday if I have the extra time and get some practice. Just my two cents...

I'm knid of in the same boat, I get so little time to fly it's nice to just be able to practice on the Friday.

Most of us completely understand what you are trying to do with the 3 day contest. It just boils down to resources such as vacation days for people who work standard work weeks, and the extra day of expenses for those of us who haven't acquired large RVs.
The idea is great and it shows a true passion for wanting to push aerobatics to a higher level.
At this point, I couldn't commit to a 3 day contest, but who knows what the future may hold.

Thanks for the input guys this is helping. Just think , more of a chance to fly for the drive. This is the furthest away contest for alot of you . I thought the extra time would help make it worth it . Maybe we get lucky and get an extra round in.

Hea Jeff....

If Henry makes the drive I'll be with him..

I vote for the 3 days, but Imac rounds for all 3 days, Fly as many rounds as possible. Keep Free-Style same as usual, on Saturday afternoon. This way we could get 6-8 rounds in.

My vote would be Sat, Sun and Monday.

I know of three people that will not be able to make this contest if it is a three day event not including myself.

WOW...............

I just Map Quested this trip, Vanc to Medford.. It's 600 plus mi. from here.. To far for me, unless I could do a DisneyLand trip or 6 Flags. Now !!! Only if I could get the time off.

Even for a 3 day event, it's a long haul for us Northerners.

Jeff,
Is the 3 day proposal to create a Sunday Freestyle like Molalla? I couldn't tell, if the Freestyle was the focus on the 3rd day, or if it was to have a longer IMAC event with more rounds. We all like Medford, so don't worry about a 2 day contest turning people away. I think there 26 or so contestants last year and it was certainly fun.

Just found the dates on the IMAC site.

I'll try to link up with Rob and Garrett and make the event. Looks to be a reasonable drive from Sacto.

Besides, Rob and Garrett need adult supervision.......
