2K12 ALES OPEN SOAR
June 8th, 9th and 10th
Three days of true flat land soaring at the beautiful Carlisle Aeromodelers field near Carlisle, PA. Friday June 8th is practice day, Saturday June 9th and Sunday June 10th are two days of ALES soaring competition. We try to finish by 3:00 on Sunday so that folks with a trip home can get a good start. Trophies awarded both days of competition plus Overall Trophies. ALES rules can be found on the newly formed ALES League web site found here http://www.ales-league.org/ This contest will also count for League points and will likely be one of the largest, if not the largest this year.
Friday the field will be open for practice all day. No food or drinks provided on Friday. Saturday will be the first day of competition and Coffee and Donuts will be there for you in the morning, a grilled lunch is provided complete with sides (Yes Aurele, that will include Miss Peggy's baked beans:-) Saturday evening after trophy presentation there will be either a BBQ OR, If we get enough registrations I will look in to another full blown pig roast!! Former attendees of the Polecat Challenge have requested the return of the pig roast but it requires a certain number of people to be practical. Sunday you will once again be provided with coffee and donuts in the morning and another excellent lunch. Both days there will be bottled water available all day long and sodas with the meals. There is no formal charge for all this food, simply a donation jar at meal time. Pilots meeting 9:00 AM Saturday.
Directions to the field and pics of the site and some of last years contest can be found at www.carlisleaeromodelers.com. There is not a collector car event this weekend so motels will be readily available and very reasonable. Hotel/motel info can be found here http://www.carsatcarlisle.com/visitors/lodging.asp . On site camping is permitted but there are no facilities. Off site camping only a few miles away can be found here http://dogwoodcamping.com/ .
Once again I will organize the largest raffle that I can muster up. This raffle will be for Registered participants only and you will recieve a ticket for the raffle included with your registration. WE expect this to be the Premier ALES contest of the year.
