Kings Canyon Combat Slash

The Clovis Area Modelers is excited to be hosting the first annual Kings Canyon Combat Slash on March 5,6 &7, 2021. This event brings one more into California between Whittier Narrows and Ione, California; where, all event classes can be held. Because of where the field is located – just off the Old Ketcher Ranch (Peg Field) Airstrip 30 east of Fresno off Hiway 180 (Kings Canyon Hiway), this field is in a agricultural area where even Big Block Fast Combat or Vintage Combat can be held.
