One-Design Model Competition
Each year the NFFS and Bill Vanderbeek sponsor the One-Design Event. Typically, they are small to medium sized Nostalgia, or near Nostalgia Era gas powered model. Bill has changed the format for the next seven years. Each year will feature two models that are considered to be similar and competitive with one another. Contestants may choose between the two designs, or fly both in competition.
Bill also proposes that any of these models may be flown in the One-Design Combo event sponsored by different club in the country. Models would not have to be past designs to be eligible. they could also be upcoming designs .
One-Design events may be sponsored by local clubs and and will be run at the NATS/USOC.
Contest Directors who would like to sponsor a One-Design Competition at their contests should contact Bill Vanderbeek for further information. Bill can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
