I have not gotten my packet yet, but I am curious as to not checking the planes before the event. Logistically, I can tell you from first hand experience it is not something that takes up a lot of time.

Do not want to second guess the folks that won the bid, however:

Pulled the following off the 2010 website listing of the F3K rules. At first TS due to limit on the number of planes allowed, we stickered EVERY part of all planes submitted to be used. Without doing that how do you maintain control?

5.7.2.3. Change of model glider

Each competitor is allowed to use five model gliders in the contest. It is permissible to change parts between these five model gliders. The competitor may change his model gliders at any time as long as they conform to the specifications and are operated on the assigned frequency. The organiser has to mark the five model gliders and all interchangeable parts of each of the five model gliders........
