3D Masters 2012 – A Word for Our Sponsors
While the 56 3D Masters Entrants from all over the World practice and perfect their Set Manoeuvres, Freestyle and Flights to Music, there is plenty of activity within that other vital area of activities – the Sponsors.
Sponsors are vital to the future of 3D Masters and for the first time ever 3D Masters has 7 Principal Sponsors – Mikado, Fast Lad, Gaui, Freakware, KDS, Align and SAB Helicopter Division. Some of them are new to 3D Masters and some have been with us for some time. Mikado and Align in particular have supported 3D Masters for many years. Mikado’s first year was 2004, when they took a modest stand at 3D Masters in Northampton. Since then they have gradually worked their way up the Manufacturers Championship, to finally triumph, sweeping the board in 2011. That is exactly what 3D Masters is intended to achieve, to provide a conduit for companies to thrive and grow
As well as providing funding support for the event, our Sponsors also help to turn the Competition into an incredible Airshow. Demonstration Flights between contest rounds are very popular with the hordes of 3D Fans, and there is real kudos to be earned from success in the Synchro and Night Flying Competitions. Demonstrations, Synchro and Night were pioneered by 3D Masters some years ago, and they are all now in massive demand as they provide a tremendous opportunity for Sponsors to show off their equipment and Pilots to a knowledgeable, appreciative audience. With their help, we are able to provide more than 30 hours of seamless 3D over the 3D Masters weekend. For regular updates on Demonstration Pilots, Night and Synchro Teams watch 3dmasters.org.uk
Amongst all our other Sponsors we are very pleased to welcome support each year from the Press, whose help has always been highly supportive and influential. We have lost count of all the pages of full-colour informed comment we have received, many of them published in the Press pages of the 3D Masters website and read universally.
3D Masters 2012 will once again be held at Trafficport. Venlo form 13th – 15th July and we wish all of our sponsors the greatest success and hope that 3D fans the world over will support them for the simple fact that they support the world’s greatest 3D Competition – 3D Masters..
