South Arkansas John Gunn Invitation C/L Stunt Championship

by Olen Rutherford   May 9, 2016

On April 29-30, I attended (as a spectator)the Model Aviators of South Arkansas, John Glenn Invitational Stunt Championship for unlimited profile, classic; (open) and precision aerobatics. The contest drew 16 competitors from Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama, Georgia, and Paul Winter came over from England. First place in each category: Unlimited profile-John Blanchard; Advanced-Norm Faith; Expert-John Gilbert; Classic open-Dan Cranfill; Warbird Open-Joe Gilbert; Precision Aerobatics/Intermediate-John Blanchard; Advanced-Mark Troutman; Expert-Dan Cranfill. Pilots' Choice; Profile-Joe Bowman; P.A.-John Hill.

CD, Doug Patterson and Co-CD, Jason Cunningham, with help from the other club members and their wives, did a great job of managing the contest.

The M.A.S.A. Club of El Dorado, Arkansas, has a great place to fly, with blacktop and a grass circle for control line and a blacktop runway for RC. A fine place to enjoy the hobby and plenty of southern hospitality to go with it. Check them out.
