Where is SEN ?
Roger...It struck me that I haven't been getting my weekly + dose of SEN. Vaguely recall some sort of notice that there was a change coming, but I did nothing (as usual). Please sign me up for future issues. Thermally, Steve
Steve, sorry you were struck but, we publish SEN when we have information to publish. On item of note is that the Southern California Aero Team, also known as SCAT. That’s where the S in SEN comes from. Any way we have a FB page where members and friends contribute Picture etc So Steve if you get this whe haven’t forgotten you.

Greetings To All,
I will be your C/D for the Finals at Lost Hills, California. I have a sanction for the Finals on the dates of May, 23, 2021 through May 30, 2021.
The schedule of events will be much like recent past Team Finals:

Mandatory pilots meeting on the field 1700-1730 hrs
May 24th (Monday): Day 1 of competition F1A assigned to time

There is no qualifying, but you must pay your program entry ($90 per event) and your Finals entry fee ($250 per event) to Colleen Pierce at AMA no later than the close of business Friday April 30, 2021.
Colleen's phone number is: (765) 287-1256 Extension 252
AMA's address is 5161 East Memorial Drive, Muncie, Indiana 47302
This event will be accordance of the 2021 FAI Free Flight Team Selection Program.
Needed for this event will be Timers, Jurists, and Model Processors. I have already had several folks volunteer to help out. Email or text me if you would be interested in helping out.
The French World Championships Organizing Committee has committed to the CIAM that they will make a go/no go decision by Saturday May 15. Should they decide to proceed, the World Championships are scheduled to run from August 14 to August 21, 2021 in Moncontour, France, the same site as 2013.
All of the above information will be a moot issue if France cancels or postpones the World Champs. The Team Finals will be cancelled or postponed and it may only be 8 days from the start of the Team Finals. The TSC and myself will keep all involved advised as information is obtained. More information to follow very soon.
