2018 AMA Nationals schedule

Postby twitte » Wed Dec 06, 2017 9:52 pm

All,

The dates for the 2018 Nationals have been set. See the sheet below for the current spread of the classes. Understand that the classes could move around a bit. Mike will be making the final determinations prior to the AMA registration form mail out.

Hey Trey,

The schedule you posted shows as 2016, not 2018. However the dates and weekdays are correct.

Bob

2016 Or 2018...whats a couple of years.....its for 2018.
No Warbirds.
As for the banquet....thats to be determined.
424 is going to have a expert and standard class at this point allowing all to fly the event.

You should consider having an Expert and Standard class for EF1 as well. The main complaint I hear from the guys on the west coast is that rookies in EF1 get discouraged very early on as they get creamed by guys who have been flying pylon for years.

EF1 was designed to be an entry level, inexpensive way to get into pylon racing. An expert and standard class would fix this.

They already do this at the Nats

Perhaps someone familiar with how it's done at the Nats would PM me with the details? Have been trying to convince the SoCal Pylon community that flying a mix of EF1 and 424 would bring more pilots out to events and into Pylon racing without much success. One organizer commented that rookies getting discouraged by being trounced by expert level pilots was one of the main issues.

Thanks,

Chris
