An international rocket contest was held September 19-20 at The Plains, Va. This contest is held every two years as a practice event for the USA Spacemodeling Team prior to the World Spacemodeling Championship.
Events included small glider free flight (FAI S4A) and RC glider precision duration and landing (FAI S8E/P) in addition to parachute duration (FAI S3A), streamer duration (FAI S6A), and gyrocopter duration (FAI S9A). Also the FAI S2P precision payload altitude and duration event was held- this is analogous to the Team America Rocketry Challenge event.
Participants were from Bulgaria, Canada and the U.S.
