VENUE CHANGE: June 12th, 2011 POINT FERMIN F3F with SCSR
I'm happy to announce the next www.socalsloperacing.com
event will be an F3F race at the beautiful Point Fermin venue.
This race will be standard a standard SCSR event, meaning that ALL pilots are invited/encouraged to attend, AMA membership is REQUIRED, the fee to enter will be $10, and standard FAI rules apply (ballast internal, 7.5mm minimum nose radius, etc!).
The last round will be decided before the race starts, to keep things fair.
Medals will be awarded for 1st through 3rd, if one of the guys brings a laptop for slope-side scoring.
I will be the Contest Director, and would like folks to show up at 11:30.
I will be asking for help to setup the timing gear, and so the sooner we are ready, the sooner we will be racing.
Point Fermin has "world class" lift on par with the best slopes in the world.
We will likely try to end at a decent hour, to respect our San Diego group of pilots, and also plan on eating at a local haunt afterwards (optional).
Cant make it to this date? Here's the list of races this year:
Some of you may be interested in this F3F thing, but may be intimidated... An excellent way to "check it out" is to come and volunteer to work at one of the turn bases. Not much skill is needed to press a button or two when the plane passes the line, and you will learn what works, and what doesn't in the turn.
We at SCSR always encourage slope pilots to come out and see what it's about. YOU DO NOT NEED TO HAVE A 3M RACE PLANE TO RACE!!!!!!
If you have an M-60, 60" molded plane, 2M, or 3M sport plane, bring it. You are racing the clock, and it's both easy to do, and harder than it looks, to do well. In short, it's a lot of fun.
If you have thought about it, stop thinking, just DO IT!
New racers fly their first race FREE, and you will have as much help as you want, all you need to do is ask.
PS. Please state your intentions with frequency and AMA #
