  1. SCAT Annual

SCAT Annual

What’s next for Scatters and our friends , the SCAT Annual Contest at Lost Hills.  Just enough time for this current bit of weather to settle down and get into March proper.  The month where lots of records are set at Lost Hills.

The all info further down the page.  Besides the FAI events we have some AMA events too. The was a question what San Valeers’s style means. There are lots of different AMA events especially when you count all the engine sizes. You can any list of the events but there will be a number that no one flies this time.  But if we made a trophy for every possible  one it would cost a fortune and leave us with a pile of unused trophies.  So we have way of dividing up the entry fee to cash prizes, come and see it work. Kind of like how the San Valeers do.
