I like the 8am start time better. Also remember write down the aircraft type on large printed score sheet, it really helps on figuring out who is flying what model for the Nats News coverage.

Thanks,
Fred

Talked with Yolanda this past week and here is some news we all need to know.
She tells me there will be NO packets (paper Schedule) handed out upon arriving at the 2020 Nats. You need to know before hand by going to the AMA web site or one of the forums for events schedule. Good luck!  n~

Blessings
Allen

This is was on the AMA website for the CL scale dates and times, Stan had some wrong information in his March 2020 RC scale column. He is saying that the RC scale will be happening from July 16-19. To be clear the CL scale will be on July 17-19...

Fred, RC scale will be flying an extra day, Mike wants to fly an additional round so they'll fly on Thursday.

There is mistake on Sunday, "first flight up 8:00" is correct not 7:15

Question - So the RC guys are flying on Friday while we are doing our static judging. It sounds like RC and CL scale will be doing the static judging on different days.

Hopefully people do not use the information in Stan's column for the CL scale schedule

Reminder - Register for the Nats before June 1st to avoid the late fee and so that the AMA can order the thropies

CL Scale Nats - July 17-19 (not the 16-19 like the AMA website says, that is for RC only)

According to this it just got cancelled.  NOTICE: THE 2020 AMA SCALE NATIONALS BOTH RC AND CL SCALE HAS BEEN CANCELLED. From Mike Barbee: The board members and officers of NASA have unanimously voted and decided to cancel the 2020 Scale R/C & C/L Nationals. This decision was made because of the risk of the Covet 19 virus and time and financial constraints brought on by the virus to competitors and spectators. We believe that this is both a logical and safe decision. We are however still planning on the NASA Scale Classic to be held September 10-13th at AMA. The qualification process for this event will NOT be in effect. Everyone is invited to come out and participate in this season end event. We will keep close watch on Government mandates and recommendations leading up to this time.

Thank you and stay safe and responsible.

I just read the notice from Mike Barbee.  He references the NASA scale classic and invites everyone to come but AFAIK that is RC only. Am I correct?

Steve, the NASA Scale Classic is supposed to have both R/C and C/L. I flew in it in 2018. I never saw any publicity related to C/L after the 2019 event so I don't know if there was an event. Publicity before the event was pretty vague too.

Ok....now I'm confused.  The NASA site says that the control line and r/c scale nats are cancelled. Unequivical.  I just read a flyer from the AMA  (https://contentsharing.net/actions/email_web_version.cfm?ep=jSWAXeyO4YPrea0EUXywJCDw6qX6Fc5gZ5cJ_ZF3oJw-q47IXsW2oJUL51k1HciFQxYnf1KpWI3AcLF_-WjluXHwyFUlKk5u19HwDDhq0hSEZd9P6KTXdVRV5I66at1e) soliciting registrants for the 2020 event

Nats Registration Still Open
 
As of this date, the 2020 Outdoor Nats is still scheduled to take place at the International Aeromodeling Center, in Muncie, Indiana. Don't forget that the registration fee for first-time Nats participants has been waived this year. Please continue to monitor AMA's social media outlets and website for updates. We are still accepting registrations, and a final decision on the Nats will be made by June 10. The registration deadline for the Nats has been extended to June 12.

Does anyone know what is actually going on with this??

Thanks
Steve

The AMA is going to make a final decision if the Nats are going to happen on June 10th, RC/CL scale and RC aerobatics SIG groups have announced that their events were going to be cancelled.

Sorry scale pilots, NO c/l scale competition at the 2020 Nats.
With the Covid situation all the judges have decisions to stay home.
We will look to the NASA scale classic Sept.10-13, for our big yearly c/l scale meet. (at AMA)
More later
Blessings
Allen
