Indiana Circuit, 2017

Postby Ken Erickson » Thu May 25, 2017 10:30 pm

It was a small group that raced today, May 5, 2017, at the Seymour Indiana Flying Eagles R/C field just west of Seymour. When we arrived we were met by Club President Steve Ort and a new strip of Asphalt down the center of the runway. The SIFE club is gearing up to host the Scale Masters in the near future.
Needless to say the field was in impeccable condition and with the help of Steve and one more volunteer, Bob Sneberger, we were ready to run.

4 racers in Silver, 3 plane matrix with 8 heats so everyone raced 6 times

Clint Seyer 24points and Fast Time, 1:25.37!!!! He slowed down in the last race to a 1:25.40.
Tim Sparks 19 points Clint set fast time because Sparky was on his heels on both of his fast races.
Matt Fornefeld 17 Points Would have beat Sparky twice but blew his lead on the last lap, can you
have the “YIPS" when flying models?
Tom Koehler 13 Points Flying smooth and getting faster.

David Poland came out and represented the Bronze class. With coaching his times came down to 1:45, which is darn good for Bronze.
Bronze guys need to be out in force for the next race. David loves to practice so he will be ready.

Ken Erickson was down to observe as his doctor haven’t released him for driving. He is still being chauffeured around by Carol but maybe he will be up for flying in the bronze class once he gets his stamina back. He has been using the RC Simulator.

The next race will be at the Monroe County RC Club field on June 3. The field should be in fine shape and if the weather cooperates we should see some stellar flying.

Don’t forget to get your entry into the AMA for the Nationals. Bronze flyers will get reimbursed anything over the normal $10 entry fee, just like last year. Those registering for Bronze cannot register for any other Club 40 class
