The end of the 2018 Season is nigh, although it seems like it just began. Black Dirt is just around the corner, and I want to encourage anyone that has not yet signed up to please do so. We want to have the flight order and judging matrix finalized very early on Saturday morning (as soon as registration is complete), and preregistration will help us immensely.

We'll be trying a new way of publishing the flight order and judging matrix at the field. In addition to the paper posting of flight order and judging matrix, we're going to use the NEIMAC network at the field. You will simply have to attach your smart phone, tablet, or computer to NEIMAC, and then point your browser to 192.168.0.150 and it will go to the Black Dirt contest page. That will be your source for each flight line's order and judging matrix.

As of right now, we're going to plan on two flight lines so we can get as many rounds in as practical (nominally at least 5 rounds of Knowns and 1 Unknown). That will require everyone to stay on top of judging assignments and flight order. We'll make announcements as each round/class begins. Plan to stay busy!

Looking forward to seeing everyone at Black Dirt!

Although attendance was down from years past, I believe a good time was had by all. A bit on the chilly side but no rain and light
winds prevailed. Four knowns on Saturday, an Unknown on Sunday morning and the Regional for 2018 was in the bag.
Normally, after an event like this, there are a few thank yous posted and that's it until next year.
I'd just like to remind everyone that an awful lot of work goes into an events like this by the sponsoring club, the scoring and all of the many
organizational aspects involved with putting on a successful event. Especially a regional event.
In addition, the Regional is usually the last event for the year in our region. It would be a great time to thank all of the people who have given
so much during the year in order for us to enjoy this great sport.
My sincere thanks to all of the CD's for not only the work that has been done this past year but for volunteering to do it all again next year.
My thanks to Tony Bonanno for the great job on the Regional.
My thanks to Brad Davy for his work throughout the year and for volunteering to do it again. Brad has asked for more people to get involved
and I hope those of you who can, will come forth.
IMAC is a great organization. It's survival and it's growth depends on each and every one us to do their part.
One last thing: It looks like there will be quite a few of us from the N.E. Region going down to the Ocala Event in the spring of next year.
It will be a great opportunity to get warm and to get in the groove for 2019. See you there.
