Title: 2018 Championship
Post by: Curtis Kitteringham on Tue, 01/02/18, 11:01 PM
  Hope all had a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS with fun ringing in the NEW YEAR
Its now time to start putting the 2018 Championship info out there, the location will be in Baton Rouge La. the date is September 13th - 16th with early signup September 12th. The club web site is having some trouble at this time, I am waiting for them to get it back on line, when this happens we will pass that info on too you. From what I understand the main host hotel and banquet locations will be very close to the club. There will be dry camping at the club for RV's with the club doing the lunch each day. I am looking for a good turn out from the Central and East coast competitrors so the West coast will need to step up with a good showing. The 2017 Championship site was one of the best location you could ask for, on a full size airport with a grass runway and newly paved runway with a light wind down the runway low temp for the event. The 2018 host site is equal to the 2017 site, for us in the West we do not have the FANTASTIC flying sites that the USSMA has been so lucky to have been giving use of last year and this year. For us the Davis Ca. Championship has been one of the best location on the West coast, with very good participation and we are looking forward to the 2019 USSMA Championship Hosting at Davis Ca. I am confident the West coast has grown in the last two years with many that missed the 2017 Champs, we have a chance of a good turnout for the 2018 Champs.        
Looking forward too seeing as many contestants as possible at the 2018 Champs from across the country.
