Hard to believe this is our 9th year since Bob Shaw, Mr. Pat, and the volunteers constructed world-class circles at Triple Tree. Since then, our Green Hat Gang has helped over 2,300 attendees try their hand at flying one of our control line RingRats. We have also hosted the nation’s finest stunt pilots in the past three Triple Tree Stunt Championships. And last year, we help our first Stunt Camp, a full day of stunt flying coaching by four of the top coaches in the world, directed by Randy Smith.

And finally, lots of talented stunt pilots have made Triple Tree in May their annual stop for fun and competition. Last year, we were treated to a one-two finish by the two gentlemen who finished one-two at our National Championships, held at AMA HQ in Muncie: David Fitzgerald and Derrick Barry.

Each year, we have strived to bring even more to Triple Tree. Last year, we actually ran out of circles until the Triple Tree volunteers quickly cut a fourth circle for our RingRats and newcomers. So, what did we decide to do this year?

We have commitments from a bunch of control line fliers who are bringing their scale models to fly and have the attendees see up close. Our events will be the same as last year with the following schedule:

Date        Day        Activities

        Saturday- Thursday    Open flying and RingRat training for newcomers

        Friday        Contest: Profile and Classic Events, RingRat training

        Saturday    Contest: C/L Precision Aerobatics, Lunch, Awards

RingRat Training:

Just c’mon down and one of our Green Hat Gang instructors will take you up and away

Open Flying

Stunt Camp

Fourth Annual Triple Tree Stunt Championship

There is no fee for the contest. Please contact me (Mark Weiss) so I know you will be competing and your shirt size. All competitors receive a free shirt, available only at Triple Tree. And our Awards are already legendary.
And this year, the shirts will be collared golf style!
