A Long Day at VIR and A Necessary Decision

Updating the Bylaws

A ballot will be mailed to you soon! A lot has changed since the last time our North Carolina Region Bylaws were updated in 2002.

NC Region’s New Permanent Home at VIR

At some point early-on after VIR reopened, almost twenty years ago, our F&C team was granted permission to use what became known as the “Flag Shack”. It’s the building back in the corner of the paddock as far from the tech shed as you can get. I believe it also serves as a utility pump […]

2017 Tarheel Cup Pro Series Results

The Tarheel Cup Pro Series (TCPS) is a points-based ‘pro’ series sponsored by NC Region. Unlike the also-popular Carolina Cup Pro Series, it does not award prize money and therefore does not charge the additional prize fund fee.
