MAAC Nats RC Scale Combat results

Time to post results for RC scale combat!
Thanks to all the contributors who helped me organize it, Ted "T-Dog" Banks, Gary "Bent" Del Bel Belluz, Dave "Crosscheck" Fallowfield, and Dave "Sideslip" Plank
Thanks also to Gerry Shaw who provided us with everything we needed to run a successful event, including a raffle prize for the pilots, Richard Barlow for making an appearance and helping out in line judging, and Palmer "Jabba" Johnson for the 1000s of pictures shot, and of course all the other volunteers who gave there time in making this event a success.
All pilots had great planes, and only one plane was turned away for being too heavy (which is ok because the pilot had 3 spares). A few pilots had to take an exacto knife to there wings to meet wingspan requirements, and I almost had Keith "lightning" Jones on his extended wing Spitfire. I didn't even know it existed until he provided me with documentation! Don "Hollywood" Veres did manage to slip one by me: I didn't realise until after the meet that the Sea Fury was never delivered until September 1946! A beautiful plane and nice flyer nonetheless Don!
Okay, enough of the formalities, here are the results:
1 Alex "Midair" Plarina 1546
2 Don "Hollywood" Veres 1412
3 Dave "Sideslip" Plank 1224
4 James "Headshot" Lawless 1040
5 Ted "T-Dog" Banks 1036
6 Jeff "Headshot" Decaluwe 832
7 Bryan "Mach 1" Mailloux 832
8 Gary "Bent" Del Bel Belluz 508
9 Jon "McGyver" Holmes 475
10 Keith "Lightning" Jones 464
11 Dave "Crosscheck" Fallowfield 400
12 Ken "Sparky" Parks 220
13 Tino "Airwolf" Lorusso -176
Best Scale went to my Ta-152H1 entered by Dave "Sideslip" Plank.
Note that for Ken "Sparky" Parks and Tino "Airwolf" Lorusso, this was there first combat meet, and definitely wont be their last! Good show lads!
We had a blast, and hopefully, Jabba will post some pics on this thread so you can all see the carnage that was left after the battle.

Put Sparky's name down for Nat 2006 eh!
Go ahead and write my name down "Ken Park" in perminent ink for the 2006 Nationals. It was a fantastic experience for a Scale Combat Newbie.
My past experience with combat has been mainly with club style scrambles in the open combat class-B. We normily fly much further out and much higher. I think I'll be more ready next year. As always I'll be there for the FUN and I do hope to improve my score in 2006. That shouldn't be too hard.
I think I'll stick with my own design the ME-109 and will probably be a good idea to have at least a pair of them for 2006. Lesson Learned!
I really wish I didn't live so far away from the Scale Combat world of Southern Ontario. But the 7 hour car trip and the price of gas limits me to the Nats for my summer vaction.
I hope people notice we Combat boys have had pages and pages of very postive "non-winny" Nat coments on Rc-Canada. This positive way should be a great recruitment for next years Scale Combat Nats. Hmmm
Scale Combat = Fun!!!!!!!!

Ken, I know I can speak for the three Detroiters when I say it was a pleasure a) meeting you and b) taking your streamers!
We look forward to a re-match next year!
Hopefully we can wake up a few more Open combatants and get them to register BEFORE the cut-off.
I was hoping to chase your Dracos - they look like a fun plane.
