Fabulous February at Lost Hills - Isaacson Winter Classic

I can hear Ike saying, "Are You Crazy?"
At the first Winter Classic, we had a campfire Sat. night and we fed everyone with a couple paks of wieners and buns. This included a shepherd that wandered had in from who knows where(who was that guy?). The whole point of the WC was to have a friendly warm-up contest for the MM. Then a few years ago, the Ike became an America's Cup (thanks Old Al, great idea!) entries jumped up to right around 200! This year, we're hosting the Anselmo Zeri Memorial, Dutch World Cup contest along with the usual Ike events. This should be one heck of a week!

Please have your current AMA and Lost Hills membership card!

See you in February! The Isaacson Winter Classic flyer is attached.

Special Attention

To be eligible for World Cup points you must have an FAI licence. For AMA members these can be obtained through the AMA competition department.  Because 2 other countries, Holland and Denmark have decided to run a World Cup in the USA this year so there will be a total of 6 World Cup Contests in North America. Contrary to  the America's Cup the World Cup scoring goes down to 20th or more place. Your best 3 contests count, plus the one in Argentina when you go there either on the team or to support the team. The bigger the contest the more bonus points. So this is the chance for North Americans to see how they rank in the World and show them your stuff. So get that FAI ticket now.

Notice that while for the non-World Cup events, including the FAI/America's Cup Mini events you do not have to pre-enter, for the World Cup you do. So get that e-mail off to Pim right away.  You can pay him at the contest.

Lost Hills Alternative Accomodation

I was looking for another place to store my Travel Trailer during the flying season close to Lost Hills. When I tow the trailer my SUV uses twice as much gas and takes almost an hour longer to get to Lost Hills from LAX.  So I stumbled upon A&B RV Rentals at Bakersfield. A&B have a storage yard where I keep my Weekend Warrior. However that is not A&B's main business, renting out trailers is. That have a selection of travel trailers - their Web site says they have:
  • 24’ Travel Trailers 
  • 28’ Travel Trailers 
  • 33' Travel Trailers
  • 35' Travel Trailers
  • 30-34' 5th wheel Trailers
  • all of our trailers sleep between 4 - 8 persons
What they do most times is take the trailers to Lake Buena Vista and set then up for people who want to bring the boat or jet ski out for water fun.  They set it up, the people play the weekend and then A&B take it back . You do not need a tow vehicle as Peter at A&B does that. I discussed with him setting up at Lost Hills. Peter can do this, so if you are interested check out the web site at and contact Peter. Tell him you spoke with me.
