Are you ready for the Nats?

Approximately three months remain until the 2015 AMA Nats in Muncie, Indiana. The Carrier
events will be processed on Monday, July
13. The Profile events (electric power,
gas power, and Sportsman) will be flown
on Tuesday, July 14. Wednesday will
be for Class I and II (gas and electric
power). On Thursday, we will fly the
unofficial Carrier events.
The annual awards banquet and
meeting will be Wednesday evening
when the Eugene Ely Award will be
presented to the best all-around Carrier
contestant at the Nats. Either electric- or
gas-powered flights can be used for the
award calculations, but the contestant
must declare which type of model he or
she will use before any flights are made.
If no declaration is made, any contestant
entered in both gas and electric events
will have the gas score counted for the
Eugene Ely Award.
The entry deadline is June 22. There
is a $50 late fee after that and no entries
will be accepted for the AMA Carrier
events after 5 p.m. on Monday, July 13.
This policy ensures that the officials
are aware of all potential entries to be
processed. They will know when all have
been processed, and won’t have to wait
in case a late entry might show up.
We would appreciate having all
models, including those in unofficial
events, available on the first day of
processing. Our officials spend much
