Pioneer 2003 Regional Meet

Written by

contestsUROC/'s Pioneer Regional Meet has been held at Pony Express Test Range for over ten years. This year, it was held on Memorial Day weekend, apart from the monthly UROC Sport Launch (now scheduled for the third weekend of the month). Because of the separation, UROC participation was down from previous years. However, the CRASH section from Colorado showed up in sufficient numbers to allow us to have a regional. Their appearance was welcome as we would need a lot of their expertise running the contest.

UROC Contest Update

Written by

You have another chance to compete in UFO ?05. The wind was too much for the October date so we have postponed the launch to the November 19th slot. As a reminder, the events are A Parachute Duration, C Streamer Duration, C boost-glider Duration, D Eggloft Altitude and Open Spot Landing. The window for the Eggloft Altitude tracking will be 1:00 to 3:00. We advise contestants to have their egglofters prepped and ready by 1:00 so that we can get the tracking done quickly. You can fly the other events at any time of the day until the range closes.

Pioneer ?06 Regional Update: We have selected the events for our Pioneer Regional Meet to be held at the May launch date. The events will be the same as those of UFO ?05 (A Parachute Duration, C Streamer Duration, C Boost-glider Duration, D Eggloft Altitude and Open Spot Landing) plus Future/Fiction Scale.

April's Spring Fling

Written by

contestsThe  Springfling  Contest was held at the April launch a continuation of March contest.  A big thanks go to Fred & Deb Williams, Cathy Redd, Michael Funk, and Diane for the tracking help they gave.  Each spent a few hours in the hot sun doing this thankless job and their help was much appreciated.  Also a big thanks goes to those who helped with timing.  Unfortunately too many names to mention.  Another  thanks to Mitch Adamson for providing a system to ensure all motors lit for the cluster event.  Finally another big thanks to Fred Williams for filling in with CD duties when my son needed attention.
