If the gate is open, you may drive on to the field to unload, but you must still park in the parking lot.

    I wish there was a contest closer to me, but a 15 hour drive one way wouldn't be absolutely out of the question. I haven't been to a competition in over 25 years, but they were always so much fun, and I really miss the challenge. As luck would have it, I have that weekend off! I just might try to make it. :wink:

    BTW, what is "Random Duration" and "Classic Model"?

    Random duration is a precision duration contest where you try to hit precisely a targeted time from lift-off to landing. It is random in that the target is determined on the field before the first flight.

    Classic Model is a craftsmanship event where you must duplicate a model that was available in kit form before 1990. You may build an up-scale or down-scale version.

    Full rules can be found at: http://www.nar.org/contest-flying/us-model-rocket-sporting-code/

    Thanks for the direct link. I looked but didn't find that on my own.
