Full Events and Rules


The European SAM Champs have been wonderful events with an attractive mixture of European countryside, International competitors and all around great company. Imagine the movie "Those Magnificent Men and Their Flying Machines" with Old Timer models and you won't be far off. The 2005 US contingent consisted of Ed. Hamler, Dick Griswold and their wives, Dave Harding and Holland based Roy Brown.. It was a wonderful vacation. Join us this year?
