Please review this information. It will also appear in your NATs entry packet.
The NATs policy in effect:
"A participant in competition as a non-flying helper Mechanic Information must be registered as a mechanic."
"All participants and/or pilots in any official or unofficial NATS Event(s) must be registered with NATS as either a NATS Competitor or Mechanic."
This means if you come to the NATs only for the non-rulebook events, you will still be required to register with NATs Headquarters. If you enter official events as well, you will automatically be covered as a "competitor", but if all you enter is non-rulebook events, you must still register.

Fuel for all events where fuel is regulated will be 10% Nitro and 20% synthetic/castor oil blend. Fuel with 20% all castor oil will be provided for Fox Race. Fuel will be generously supplied by Ritch's Brew.
The circles are open for general practice on a first come first serve basis at the conclusion of each day's events, and in the morning prior to the close of processing. The official circle will be closed for practice when competition begins.
Note: Practice for the next day's events always has priority on the circles.
The site will NOT be available for practice on the weekend before the NATs until after official flying for the RC events and CL Scale have been completed.
You MUST familiarize yourself with the current AMA CL Racing rules. They may be found on the AMA web site.
Specific items to note:
In addition, pilots MUST observe proper circle etiquette when landing and taking off:
Counting and Timing:
As in years past you will be required to help out with the counting and timing responsibilities. Failure to help will result in no time for you in that event.
NCLRA NATs Racing Champion:
The NCLRA NATs Champion will be determined as follows.
