Tournament of Champions Reunion
Free Style Invitational
26 Aug to 1 Sep 2019
The last Tournament of Champions was October 2002. The TOC was the beginning of not only what we now know as Scale Aerobatics and Free Style, but giant scale model aviation. Strides made in engines, building, electronics, to name a few made the hobby what it is today.
The Academy of Model Aeronautics is proud to announce a reunion of the original TOC Competitors to be held at Clover Creek Aerodrome 26 Aug to 1 Sep 2019. During this reunion Clover Creek Aerodrome is inviting those competitors over 50 years old to compete in the Senior TOC competition.
With the reunion of some of our most historical competitors the AMA and CCA would like to invite the younger competitor to compete in a Free Style event.
Two separate contests, two AMA sanctions, competing over the same four days, combining the young and the old both competing two separate cash prizes.
Clover Creek will be open for practice Sunday 25 Aug 2019
