2010 Carolina Boogie
By Mitch Velickovich , Contributing Editor, Charlotte, North Carolina
Barnstormers was present at the 2010 Carolina Boogie in Lumberton, NC.

International Aerobatic Club Chapter 19 based in NC held the 2010 Carolina Boogie at the Lumberton, NC airport (KLBT) from April 29th to May 1st. Attendance was the best ever for Chapter 19 and had competitors from as far as Massachusetts, Maryland, Virginia, Tennessee, Florida and both Carolinas making the event a true regional event.

sharing his knowledge
Open practice was held on Wednesday and Thursday. Competition started early on Friday April 30th having clear skies blessing the event. Winds aloft were high and some of the competitors struggled staying on course with the Judge line. Primary Class went out first soon followed by Sportsman, Intermediate, Advanced and Unlimited. Each Class flew twice on Friday and the day finished with a grin on each of the participants face. IAC19 had a nice Southern style BBQ banquet following the event for all to enjoy the evening.

Saturday was plagued by low ceiling and high wind. While waiting for the weather conditions to clear, IAC National President Doug Bartlett held an open forum to answer all and any questions in regards to the club. Doug also shared some of his valuable knowledge in aerobatics with all involved and had a nice time with all participants while waiting for the weather to improve.
The Box
Time came to fly when Chief Judge and IAC Hall of Fame William “Bill” Finagin, also known as the “Spin Doctor,” together with contest Director Bryan Taylor decided the weather was cooperating enough to try. Primary went out first only to encounter lower ceiling had move in again. Inclement weather was present and the contest had to be declared completed. 

Awards Ceremony was soon followed to allow some of the out of state participant’s time to pack and go home ahead of the nasty weather. A Po’Boi Lo Country Boil was served for all to enjoy. Massachusetts participant Bobby Farquharson aka “Yankee Bob” had a “First” southern cuisine treat both days and he could not move away from the food line!

The Primary class was won by Brandon NeSmith flying a Pitts S2B. Sportsman #1 plate went to Eric Sandifer flying a Pitts S1S. Intermediate was won by Adam Cope flying an Extra 200. Bryan Taylor flying an MX won the Advanced category and the talented Rob Bond won the Unlimited class flying a two bladed prop Pitts S2B. (who says an old Pitts can’t compete against the big composite monoplanes????? Just ask Rob!!!)

Barnstormers site was mentioned several times by all participants as the best source of aircraft, aircraft parts and components.
