21st Annual Columbus IMAC Challenge

Westerville Model Aeronautics Association

Saturday, 05/29/2021 - Sunday, 05/30/2021

May 29-30, 2021
Hosted by: Westerville Model Aeronautics Association (www.wmaa-wags.org)

We have a beautiful flying site with 1000ft. x 150 ft. well groomed smooth grass runway with no obstructions. This is a great event for pilots wanting to try IMAC for the first time. Several experienced IMAC competitors will be available to provide training and flying tips for anyone that is interested in learning how to improve their precision aerobatic flying.

We will be flying the ALTERNATE SEQUENCES due to no overfly over the dam.

NOTE:  No food or drink will be provided by the club for this event due to Covid safety concerns.   All competitors and families are asked to bring their own food and drink to the event (you are expected to be self sufficient during the contest day).

Entry Fee: $50 ($20 IMAC member discount = $30)

Note:  If the total number of contest entries is small, this contest will be run as a 1 day contest on Saturday.  If that happens, we will fly 2 rounds of knowns, 1 round of unknowns, and then another round of knowns on Saturday.  The unknowns would be handed out when flying begins on Saturday.  If we have a large turnout, the contest will be run as a traditional 2 day event.
