Horizon Hobby and JR donate prizes for raffle.

Horizon Hobby have announced their donation to the F3J raffle and what a fantastic selection of prizes they have made available. There is a beautiful 11X transmitter to be won along with a bunch of the new High Voltage Servos so you can use those LIFE packs safely in your sailplane. And of course an F3J Soaring Team raffle would never be complete without a Radian up for grabs.
So ladies and gentlemen don't wait. Go to the website here and feast your eyes on the prize.
Then buy some tickets to win in the biggest and best Soaring Raffle ever.
Thank you Horizon Hobby and JR for the fabulous support once again.

Great News! Airtronics have agreed to donate Daryl's personal SD10G transmitter and the entire airborne electronics along with DP's best Icon 2 from the Worlds in South Africa.

This is a prize worth going for alone as it will be "dialed in" and the entire RTF Sailplane setup will be as good as money can buy.

Don't wait - (buy some tickets now from here) and get a spread in the ticket numbers to get the best chance.

Remember that aside from the other 40 or more prizes drawn (which you can peruse here) we will also have 4 other brand new F3J planes up or grabs.

Come on guys. Support your National Team now and get in with a big chance to take home some real booty.

WOW..... Futaba 8FG Super now also added to the raffle....

The latest "Super" radio from Futaba with 14 channels and more bells and whistles than you can imagine is now include din our Mega raffle. If you like to wear Orange this is the radio you covert. Futaba's best 2.4 Ghz radio just got "super-sized" and we have one in the raffle.

Thanks to a very kind gesture by Darwin Barrie at the South West classic for donating this prize. Darwin was lucky enough to win it in the raffle and immediately threw it back in for the benefit of the F3J team. When you see Darwin next please express your thanks to him.

Go here to the raffle page and check out the $14,500 worth of prizes.. Buy some tickets and support the team.

Bump - this should be a sticky no? Or maybe the team already has too much money

Definitely don't have too much money! Getting the crew to South Africa is going to be one of the most expensive trips a US team has ever taken. So please keep buying tickets. We have one of the best, if not the best, raffles ever!

Unfortunately, it can't be a sticky per forum rules (something about the raffle being a form of gambling).

Thanks everyone for their support! It is much appreciated.

You're showing your age D.
Its the threads that stay stuck to the top of the page because they are "sticky" regardless of what other threads get started later.
Gotta have the moderator stick it for us though.

Late August when team returns triumphantly from Sth Africa.
It will be held "live" here on RC Groups and every ticket buyer will be emailed with details in advance and results after the draw.
