32nd Annual Ottawa Valley Giant Scale Rally
The Ottawa Valley Giant Scale Event in Kingston, Ontario has been running for 31 years now, and has become the largest Giant Scale event in Canada and one of the largest in North America, drawing pilots from Ontario, Quebec and the Northern United States. Last year we had 100 pilots in attendance with well over 200 planes of all types. Sponsors recognize that this event is a great opportunity to show their products and love to show their support for the Giant Scale Community. This event has been growing every year, and we fully expect to expect over 100 pilots again for the 32nd rally.
Register early! We are once again offering a substantial incentive for pilots to register early. Early registration ensures you will get a free event shirt in the size of your choice, as numbers are limited. Pilots who qualify will be entered in a free substantial draw prize [To be announced]. Early registration will be from early April to August 3rd 2018. The entry fee is $20 for the 2 day event.
