October 28 - 29, 2017

This will be the 3rd annual Shreveport Clubs IMAC CHALLENGE

there will be 3 events:

1. IMAC Competition for all 5 classes
BASIC
SPORTSMAN
INTERMEDIATE
ADVANCED
UNLIMITED

2. SOUTH CENTRAL REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

3. SOUTH CENTRAL REGION WORLDS QUALIFIER


The Regional Championships will also serve as the IMAC Worlds qualifying event for the South Central Region. Two contests will be scored separately at this event.
The first contest will be for the Regional Championships with all pilots included in the standings and one unknown flown on Sunday morning.
The second scored contest will only include the top 5 pilots in IRPS South Central Regional Point standings PRIOR to the regionals. They will be competing for a spot on the World team in Sportsman, Intermediate, Advanced, and Unlimited. These 5 pilots in each class will fly one additional Unknown sequence on Saturday near the end of the day. This contest format is being adopted from the NC 2013 Zonal World Team selection process so that pilots competing for the World spot will be able to drop their low unknown (of the two flown). The organizers of the "World's event do not want a single mechanical failure in the unknown to cost a pilot a spot on the World team.

We are planning on "TWO FLIGHT LINES" for this event.

Tentative SCHEDULE
Saturday
7:00am Registration Opens
8:15am Pilots Meeting
8:30am
3 rounds of Known Sequences (all pilots)
1 round of Unknown Sequences (only for 5 World Qualifier competitors in each class)

Sunday
8:15am am Pilots Meeting
8:30am Flying starts
1 round of Unknown Sequences (all pilots)
1 round of Known Sequences (all pilots)

Tell all your friends.

We will end the season with a bang.

Please try to be there by Friday so we can begin preparations to begin early Saturday morning.





Pilot registration begins Friday after noon and we plan to have it completed by 8:00 am Saturday morning on October 28th, 2017.

Entry fee = $35.00

Non-IMAC = $45.00

First Contest Basic pilots fly for free.

Includes Pilot lunch on Saturday, and

Pastries for breakfast Saturday and

Please refer back to Qualifier Outline. I think we will need an earlier start to accomplish all we need to.
Let me know what you think.

What time is sunrise in late October? That may be a limiting factor :-)

Just finished making the 1st place trophies for the contest.

Well, sort of.

Still need to do a little more work on them, and I need to order the metal plates for the front of the trophy base.


Just a little teaser....

Hello there Greg,

very good question.

this contest will servo two main purposes.

One is the regional championship

and 2, it will be for the Worlds Qualifier.

so there will be two separate scores kept during this contest.

the pilots who are present, and whom have flown in at least 3 contests IMAC from January 1, 2017 thru October 27, 2017,

their names will be added to the Worlds Qualifier formula of score keeping.

then, those and only those eligible, will fly an unknown saturday afternoon.

the sunday morning unknown is the traditional unknown that we fly.


the purpose of this, will be, that the eligible pilots, whom are competing for the Worlds Qualifications, will get to drop the lowest unknown score.

for example, you flew saturday unknown, and then sunday, your airplane quits ,

why then, you can drop the score from sunday.

and vice versa


that way, one will have a solid opportunity to qualify without there being a loss due to mechanical problems, etc....



hope this helps and was not confusing.
Wish I could fly everyday!

Thanks Cam. I understand the purpose of the Sunday unknown, but you also have a Sunday known mentioned in your first post.
