Default 2013 USVTA Scale Nationals April 12 - 14

Hello Everyone,

Its that time of year again.

The USVTA Scale Nationals, the original USVTA Nats race and home of the Championship Belt.

The Track @ Harbor Hobbies (Just North of Chicago!) is pleased to announce the 6th annual USVTA Scale Nationals, sponsored by Novak Electronics.

April 12 will be practice
April 13 will be 3 quals
April 14 will be last chance qualifier and mains (Triple A's for all classes)

We've expanded the class line up this year to give more folks the chance to enjoy the weekend. This year's classes are:

USVTA
USGT
Mini
17.5 Stock TC

Eric at The Track (Our fabulous race director) will be getting on-line signups up at rcsignup.com in the next couple days.

Race fees are
$35 for first class
$20 each additional class

This race is always a boatload of fun and there's always a twist (look for that coming up....)

Attached is a flier with all the pertinent details. Don't hesitate to ask questions here, send me a PM, or call Eric @ The Track (847-246-1762)

I'll have info on hotels and such soon. We're getting additional sponsors on board so look for that soon also.

Come on out and see if you have what it takes to take home the championship belt this year.

Same dates as the Mile High Indoor Championships, eh?

Your weight limit on 1/12 scale must be an error, 930g? Should be around 730g.

oops. the 1/12 weight is a typo. yes, 730 is correct.

As far as the dates go, early / mid April is when we have historically run the race and we have other events on both sides of this race.
