Today was only supposed to be the final qualifier. The King 50 finals is on Saturday. You should have read the schedule.

You're right. You called it "the thing". So clear.

They canceled the qualification round? If so I agree that's kind of a drag and not very fair to the people who showed up on a Friday!! seems like they could have added a last min qualification round on Saturday AM for people that just couldn't make it on Friday. I think the king 50 is great but if you want people to respect it like a true "sporting event" or competition you have to set rule and keep them.

These events are for everybody to get together and have fun with a little friendly competition thrown in for mostly bragging rights. With some of the top companies in this hobby giving out free goodies to everyone that spends a mear $1 or $2 for a raffle ticket. It was probably agreed with all the pilots there to wait until one of the Regulars (bad a$$ pilot) could make it, because most of the FG members are almost like family and we all try to take care of each other. If you want to see some flying right now I know there are thousands of video's on this site that you can watch. And as for any money that you spent to watch the show, you can send me you info in a private message and I will give you your money back. I suggest you have a beer and talk to some of the regulars and learn as much as you can. That alone is worth 10x's what you spent.

Understand and agree!! but if your promoting this as a competition and asking sponsors to pay $$ for there logo on a wall to increase the prize money you just made it more than just a friendly competition. If you want to keep this as "just a fun fly event" then keep it up and return the money the event sponsors paid!!!
