The 2020 Barron Field Air Races is ON! Tom Hallman and Mark Houck are hosting the contest on October 3rd and 4th, but with some minor changes. Here is what Tom and Mark have sent out:
In light of Covid-19, we’re having duplicate contests on Saturday and Sunday, so that you can pick your best day, and treat it like a day trip, and avoid an over-night stay. These will be two complete contests. Starting and ending on the same day.
For those who want to be there both days, hotels are open and camping is permitted on the field.
***Please note, depending on the ever changing Covid-19 impact, things could change, so we’ll make every attempt to keep you updated as the contest date nears.***
We ask that you practice social distancing and wear masks when in close proximity to other flyers. Bring your own pen or pencil for entering scores. Hand sanitizer and wipes will be available at GHQ, but certainly bring your own.
To honor our late flying friend John Houck, we’ll have a special tribute both days by flying a few of John’s models. Ships that we’ve all come to know, love, and…fear!! I’ll miss his enthusiasm and dedication to free-flight.
Hopefully the Weather Gods will give us a beautiful event, along with future days of great weather. It’s all about flying, time with friends, and taking in this special hobby that we all share & love.
Please share this with friends who might be considering Wawa this year.
