  • Planning for 2020 and Potential change for Regional Finals

    For those of you that might have missed the discussion at Black Dirt, its not clear that we will be able to have the Regional Finals at the end of September there in 2020. There are a number of reasons that I won't elaborate on, but needless to say, I would like to start discussing alternatives. It seems like a long way off, but in reality, its essential for the rest of the 2020 planning.

    One option I would like to hear feedback on would be rotating the regional finals to different parts of the region. I know that Pegasus RC in Hagerstown would LOVE to host the regional finals, and the more temperate weather would allow us to push it even further out (possibly October). That would also open up more time in the calendar to hold other regional contests. We could do the regionals in the south one year, and the north the next year.

    Another option will take a little more leg work from all of us to identify a more centrally located field that will be IMAC friendly. That option would probably require us to continue ending the points season in September.

    I'm open to other options, but I need to hear from you, the pilots.

    I'm open for anywhere. I'm just hoping I will be able to practice with the new rules.

      Not sure if I count, but I'm all for a new location. I mentioned this idea to Tom Dicuirci at Lums Pond this summer, he was interested, so that may also be an option.

        Pegasus or Lums would be good venues for 2020. Both allow for rollers. Motels are more convenient for folks at Pegasus. Would love to see 2 contests at both locations.

          Gentlemen - If you want to discuss other topics - start them in new threads. I need to keep this thread on topic about the 2020 Regional Finals location. Off topic posts will be removed.

              My first choice would be Pegasus.

                Anything new on this? Seems like Pegasus has more room. They also have bidirectional runways.

                  I'm still waiting to hear from the northern reaches.

                    Unless someone comes up with a more northern location I think Pegasus would work well. Lots of room, for rollers, RVs and pit area. Convenient motels, etc.

                    If we also have our traditional season opener there, it would bookend the whole season.
