49th Regionals postponed until May 2022
With great reluctance, the Northwest Regionals Management Association has canceled the 2021 Northwest Control-Line Regionals, scheduled for Sept. 3-4-5.
The usual Regionals site, the Roseburg Regional Airport, has become the staging area for the aerial attack on wildfires in the Roseburg area. As a result, a large number of helicopters, fuel trucks and support vehicles are using every part of the airport that could be used for control-line flying.
The Regionals organizers have intensively investigated alternatives in the area, but no site appears viable with such a short time to organize the usage for the event.
The city of Roseburg, which has consistently been helpful and supportive of the Regionals, already has placed the Regionals on the 2022 calendar at its traditional dates, Memorial Day Weekend, May 27-28-29.
We hope all of those who had planned to attend the 49th Regionals will join us for the annual celebration of CL modeling and competition next May — and bring your modeling friends!
