I wish....
I subscribe to "Nats News" from the AMA website. Almost everyday, they post pics and write ups of the events ongoing in Muncie..... Control line, Scale, Aerobatics (scale/pattern), Soaring and Pylon Racing. If your like me, i love it all!
Here is a link to their website. you can click on the dates/events that interest you.

http://www.modelaircraft.org/events/nats/natsnews.aspx

in the email, they also send a flikr link to view tonnes of photos!!

It always bugs me that there is not a Canadian Nationals anymore. every year i live vicariously through the American Nats. held in Muncie Indiana. We do have some Canadians make the trip and compete against some of the best! Good luck guys!! One day I hope to get back and compete.
Anywho, maybe one day we can have Canadian Nats again.... until then, enjoy the info and great pictures.

Cheers
Cory Paine

Re: Canadian NATS

I can imagine that the major sticking point with having a Canadian Nats is finding a club (or clubs) big enough and interested enough to host such an event. The US has a huge advantage here due to the AMA national site in Muncie. I've had the privilege to fly there and it is impressive to say the least!

Anyone in Manitoba (central location in Canada) with a spare half section of land they want to donate to MAAC?

I agree trumpetman... I believe they even hire a work force. I haven't been in years, but it was always a great experience. good and bad! lol.. just when you thought you had some game, go there and you get humbled a little bit.

Re: Canadian NATS

I always thought MAAC dropped the ball years ago when they didn't purchased the property in Tillisburg when offered. It would have been great site for a dedicated Nats and worth while investment. Also would have a great place to have THE MAAC OFFICE. Combined Nats has been dead since.

Re: Canadian NATS

I think that between the differences in population, distance most would need to travel to attend & potential sponsor money to help with travel expenses etc we're at a serious disadvantage. It's a 2 day drive from Ottawa to the Manitoba border, and 3 days from the New Brunswick / NS border area & that's expensive, has it's dangers if towing a trailer, and there's no guarantee what the weather might throw in.

It's a three day drive from the west coast to the eastern border of Manitoba as well. I'm not sure what your point is. The US national site is a long ways from the west coast but they seem to be able to make it work.

Re: Canadian NATS

They have a lot of "super highways" to travel on, cheaper lodging, cheaper gas plus 10 times the population, different rules re tax benefits for sponsors, the majority of which sell to the US market because they are US based. Those very same businesses don't get as big a bang for their buck if sponsoring a Cdn event nor the same tax benefits.

Re: Canadian NATS

It would be awesome to have a Giant rc type park in Ontario (or Canada). Kinda like triple tree where we could host nats or any type of rc competitions etc. 3-4 runways, a pond for float flying, rc track, fpv racing, etc
Anyone have a few hundred acres?....
