I attended and followed the TOC for many years. Chip and the Tournament are intertwined in scale aerobatics history. I don't know that his contributions can ever be truly appreciated. It is a shame to see him not included. Age is an arbitrary number - 50 sounds good until it becomes obvious that by using 50, you exclude one of the most iconic figures.

And Billy's name is still not spelled correctly. this is of personal interest to me because I had breakfast with Bill Sunday morning of the finals. He had finished tenth overall, a very respectful finish for a first timer, flying a 40% flat stab Edge that he designed and built, and introducing high energy into freestyle.

Missed the age requirement lol. He must be right on the cusp of being 50, real shame that he is not eligible. Should be a great event, might even make it down to watch this one!

We are under 50 days to the Sr TOC and Free Style Invitational Event. Summer School is finishing up at the Scale Aerobatic National Championships, and final preparations in progress at Clover Creek.

Competition will start Thursday August 29th with both classes flying each day with only the top seven flying on Sunday.

Saturday evening CCA is hosting a dinner for the competitors and staff on site. If you would like to join us please prepay so we may ensure there is enough food.

I would have to say Memphis TN would be the closest.

Memphis is closest, but do not rule out Nashville 2.5 hours a way

Memphis is just over an hour
