This is the map to Christopher Columbus Park located North of Grand Rd. on Silverbell. You can get to Silverbell by either Camino Del Cerro or Grant Rd. Christopher Columbus Park is the is the Contest Site for the Vingage Stunt Championships (VSC).

At VSC 28 Classic Stunt and Super 70s will be flown over three (3) days using all three asphalt circles. Classic will be contested Thursday March 17th - Saturday March 19th. One flight each day with the pilots moving to a different circle each day. The two highest scores for the three days of competition will be added together for the final score and placings. Entries for Super 70s will be mixed with those who enter Classic and flown in front of the same judges. Contestants can fly either Classic or Super 70s but not both.

Pull Test and line size for Old Time and Classic Stunt will be per the 2015 - 2016 AMA rules for Control Line Precision Aerobatics. Scoring for Classic will be per the 2015 - 2016 AMA rules for Control Liine Precision Aerobatics. This means that pattern points will be included in the scoring. K Factor Scoring for OTS, Ringmaster, and OTS-IGN is used. The PAMPA rules for Classic apply except for Fidelity Points which will not be applied.

No more than two contestants can fly the same plane in the same event. Example: Contestant 'X' and contestant 'Y' can fly the same plane in Classic but no one else. This goes for OTS, OTS Ign, and Ringmaster as well.

OTS Stunt will be contested Tuesday March 15th - Wednesday March 16th on two asphalt circles. OTS Ingition will be contested Tuesday March 15th - Wednesday March 16th on Grass.
