This comp will be at Glendale Shoals in Spartanburg, SC. In order to beat the heat we are starting early, but the whole area has a lot of shade and is right on the river. We will be using SORRCA rules for the most part as we have in the past.

$5 entry fee per person to cover lunch and supplies.


There will be 3 Events. 2 of them will consist of a 100 gate obstacle course that is run in teams of 2. The third will be a sled pull.

We will be using SORRCA rules (SORRCA.com) for scale points, you will get bonus points toward your final score for having scale looks.

As and added bonus for this event, you will receive up to 5 bonus points for Scale Items that you would use at the river: canoe, kayak, inner tubes, umbrellas, beer, coolers, anything water, beach, river related. So pile on the scale items and get ready for a river trip like no other.

We will be running Class 2 and Class 3 at this event.

This event is team oriented. You will draw your team mate before the event at the Drivers Meeting. Your scores will be added together from the Sled pull and the Obstacle courses and the winning team will be picked based on the lowest total score. The event will not be timed for scoring, but there will be a time limit that you cannot go over, that will be dictated by the course. There will be no penalty for backing up or rolling over, as long as you or your partner can perform the recovery.

updated first thread to include a $5 entry per person. This is to cover lunch, which in the past has been hotdogs and chili with chips and drinks.

The rustoleum product and the original neverwet are not the same, og neverwet is a basic silicon with hydrophobic tweaks. The rustoleum is a non conformal paint with silicon added, which is why it has poor adhesion and poor edge coverage compared to regular electronics coatings. Its made to lay flat and not build thick like normal conformals. The binder also lowers the operating temp vs regular silicones or epoxy types.


Probably coats just fine, but the paint binder screws up long term reliable electronics use. For the money, there are plenty of other options better suited.

Looks like there are better options
