NASA Scale Classic (NSC) 2017
« on: May 18, 2017, 06:39:07 PM »
We finally have the date for the 4TH Annual 2017 NSC;
Oct 6Th, 7Th & 8Th.
AMA, Muncie, IN.
I will E D for the controline scale portion of this event.
You can find more information on the NASA web site soon.

Sport & Authentic scale will be one class. Profile will be the other class that you must qualify for at one of the qualifier contest through out the year.
1/2 A and Fun scale will be open to everyone.

Those hosting a C/L scale contest and would like to make it a "qualifier" let me know so we can get it posted and advertised.
And the CD MUST get the results to me ASAP.

Invitations will be sent to all those who qualify.
Those wishing to compete can register for the non-qualifing events.

Schedule for the weekend will be posted soon.

I hope we have a much cleared statement of the numbers for qualification.  Things like "top 25%" leave a lot to the imagination.

Sure, the top 25% of 100 is 25.  But with the very small number of CL scale entries the rounding-off factor is huge.

If you build a plane and travel to a contest you have no control of the number of entries. 

What is an "entry"?  Paying the entry fee?  Static judging?  Attempting flight?  Getting a score?

Last year Brodak only reported those who got scores, which was less than half of the actual entries. 

I would suggest a "top 3" minimum with additional qualifiers for larger contests. 

The 2016 NASA Classic was a great contest.  But we don't need rules that make it even smaller.  We only used two and a half of three available days.
