Golf Cart Rental for World Champs/World Cups

Golf cart rentals from All Cart in Bakersfield will be available for rental at the field prior to the Sierra Cup beginning October 10 including the World Championships and finally Kotuku Cup ending on October 24.

We have been given an opportunity to rent these carts at a substantial cost reduction as long as we meet a minimal number of cart rentals.

The carts will be rented on a reserve basis with payment due on delivery on a date before the events.

The carts are available for $50/day. There are 2 person carts, 4 person carts and a cart with a cargo box on the back. These carts would be a great way to move people and equipment around the field as well as for a potential chase vehicle, subject to field rules involving the orchards.

We need to know how many carts should be reserved. We would like to have teams or individuals advise as soon as possible who wants a cart(s) and for which days.

There are a limited number of carts available and reservations will be taken on a first come, first served basis up to the limit of carts available. We are advised roughly 20 carts will be available.

Please contact Mike McKeever,, to reserve your cart. He will secure your reservation and ensure your cart is available when you want it. It is unlikely carts will be available to rent on the field on a day of contest basis so reservations are encouraged. Any questions please feel free to contact Mike.

Don’t know if you saw this.   Sen worthy.

Due to popular demand, we are THRILLED to announce that we are now able to offer our Canadian members the option to get the Digest in printed format. You can join/renew your membership through our online store at

This coming Wednesday we will hold a three event contest beginning at 7:30 and ending at 11:00. We will fly a ALL SKY CHIEF Mass Launch, OLD TIME RUBBER FUSELAGE [ ROG ] and a WW II COMBAT Mass Launch. If you can come help time and retrieve for our walking wounded, it would be a big help. If you can come and fly…even better. Any questions call me on 760-604-6773.
Many Maxes to All
