No N30 at the NWR?

What's up with no N30 at the regionals?
I was hoping to see some of the planes.

One guy entered last year.

I hope the absence of N30 won't deter you from attending the Regionals. There will be a prize for the highest-placing Canadian in stunt.

Just when a couple of designs made the Nos -30 list, will they still be classed as Nos-30 if they are listed as such and flown in that class?

FWIW: I was refinishing my previously retired Dixon "Phoenix" for this event/contest. But understand dropping it, I think only one entrant last year.  :(

I talker to John Thompson at the Stuntathon recently.
I mentioned to him that I gad a plane ready to go for N-30 at the Regional thus year, but it wasn't included. He told me that they could hold it this year at the Fall Follies if he was made aware of some interest.  Drop him a request if you want it included.

Heck, I have several planes that qualify for N-30 because they are more than 30 years old as they sit!  Still perfectly flyable....

The only person to enter in N-30 at the Spring Tuneup in Portland was me, and that was because I wanted to take a picture of a trophy to send to my shoulder doctor and physical therapist.  That's been the general story for the event for some years around here.

The problem with electric is that once you get the smoke generator and sound system installed, the plane is too heavy.
