The Spirit of Competition

The goal of this event is to stimulate the Competition Soaring segment of the R/C hobby into higher levels of awareness within the modeling community.  Soaring has endured many years with no real push to grow the segment.  With a prestigious international event drawing out the best pilots from not only the US but the World, we hope to grow the great sport of competition soaring. IMAC has seen much growth, no doubt partly due to prestigious events like TOC, and the Don Lowe Masters.  Scale has also seen great growth with events like Top Gun and the US Scale Masters. The Electric segment has seen explosive growth with events like Neat and SEFF.  Giant scale has seen growth with events like Joe Nall, Dogs and the IMAA rally’s.

Soaring needs its own high profile event. An event that will be The One to Win, an event that brings the soaring segment in front of the average modeler, an event that gets people excited about soaring. This event is not a fly in, it is pure, unadulterated competition, with rules designed to choose the best thermal pilot in the world. This event will inspire many to get involved in soaring and aspire to higher levels of soaring skills.
