Calling ALL F3K Pilots

Gentlemen,

The F3B Community needs your help!

I am the Event Coordinator for this cycle's F3B Team Selection being held next month on Oct. 24th / 25th / 26th in Perris, CA.

We are short of volunteer helpers to push buttons etc.

Please consider attending the event in Perris to help out. Lunch and soft drinks/water will be furnished for you plus you will get to watch some pretty fantastic flying by some very talented pilots.

When ever the F3K TS is held in SoCal you will have a pool of grateful pilots to ask to be your helpers.

We really need your help, please consider volunteering.

Thank you,

More details here:

I volunteered for three days at one of the F3B TS... It was fun!
Count me in for most of Saturday and maybe Sunday morning.
Can't do Friday. Some work thing that keeps getting in the way.
I might be able to recruit a couple of local DLG guys, too.

Great, thank you so much Lex.

Friday looks to be very short of help. If not Friday then Saturday?

Thanks for stepping up!

Jun,

It will be good to see you again out at the F3B TS. Thanks for stepping up and helping again. We still need a lot more help so any recruiting you can do would be greatly appreciated!

Guys,
If you are "on the fence" about this, DO IT!!
I volunteer at the Gator F3B here on the East Coast and it is a blast.
At face value it sounds very simple to watch a plane and push a button.
The reality is that it is challenging without being too difficult and the flying action is amazing.

I have attended 3 bsky series comps. Not bad for 18 months in RC, 16 in DLG. My opinion on this is near worthless as I said. Except as a newbie not enjoying the dead time standing on the field during. Aulds or 3x3:20's. I say lower prep and landing times so we can fly more.

A heartfelt Thank You!

I just wanted to pass on to everyone how successful the F3B Team Select ended up.

All the pilots agreed it was the best volunteer group they had ever seen. Very few reflights or mistakes and we had enough help all three days.

Congratulations! Give yourselves a big round of applause! You deserve it!

Thank you very much gentlemen for your help in making this F3B TS so well executed!
