Frank Ehling International 1/2A Postal Texaco Challenge 2018
The Old Timers, SAM 114 of Western Ohio in the USA, invite all SAM Chapters to compete for the Frank Ehling International 1/2A Postal Texaco Challenge for 2018. This model airplane event has been flown annually since 1985.
New this year, your team can pick any day for flying during the ninety day window, Sept. 1st through Nov. 30th. This should allow a greater freedom in selecting good weather conditions for each global location in which the contests are held. Once you start flying do not change to another day. If a team member is unable to participate at the team site he may fly at his location on the same day and report results to you.
The results should be recorded as follows: Members name, Model, wing area, weight, and times of Flt 1, Flt 2, Flt 3 and total. Please list the results for all team members. The sum of the times of the three highest scoring fliers will be the team score.
Team managers are asked to comment on the weather and flight conditions, the date and location flown. Please include your SAM Chapter number, address, telephone number and e-mail address. The results are due by Dec 5, 2018.
Note: SAM 2015 1/2A Texaco rules apply (15 min. max, best two of three flights). See SAM’s Web site for complete rules.
