Team NZ is practicing... lots of practice. Well, as much as the winter weather allows. Looking at the upcoming forecasts, we have two more days of flying prior to the onset of wind/rain which is likely to continue until we are on our way to Croatia.

The NZ team facebook is found via "F3k-Team-New-Zealand". The NZ team is taking all Snipes (the NZ team Snipe count is probably about 1% of the total production from Vladimir...). For us, it is 1 week to go until departure. Of course it takes over two days to get there (Los Angeles is the midpoint of our journey to Croatia), and we arrive in the evening so it feels as if it takes 3 days from leaving home to getting to the field. We are REALLY looking forward to flying in summer type conditions. The cool/cold and windy stuff with not much thermal activity is getting tiresome, although rewarding from a technical flight aspect. It is so much more fun to have wild lift (and sink!) where one has to put it all out there to get the best result.

The Team Spain Is Ready!...... Or almost Ready...


I'm assembling models like a manic to have them ready for Croatia. I hope to have 4 Virals ready for the contest, Two are ready and quite adjusted, two need the final touches.

Hope to see you all of them safe in ludbreg!

Well, Team Taiwan used the last contests as team building measures and we had success, and more important, tons of fun ...

Joe, I hope Team NZ finds a good transition from the cold winter to the brutal summer conditions in Croatia. I've been there last year for 2 Eurotour Contests and I have to say, that Denmark's 2013 WC weather was way easier to manage ...

Really happy to see you Guys in 2 weeks and I wish you all a safe and sound journey to Ludbreg

RJ

P.S. Just Lin missing on the pics

I've decided I had better bring "Das Boot" if I'm to stand any chance at all!

Team Canada Checking in

Team Canada is

Ivan and Pat Mackenzie -

Myself (David Webb)

We are all practicing where schedules permit. Western Canada has been simply amazing from Spring to Summer - We had none of our wet spring and early summer conditions so we have had ample opportunity to fly in all kinds of conditions - Big wind - Big lift - big sink and early morning neutral air. Armsoar Models will dominate our model count - Vibe's with some Snipes as back ups

I leave on the 14th this time with my wife and daughter to experience all that is the chaos and comradely of a FAI WC.

I am a relative newbie to F3K and this will be my first WC in F3K. I hope that like my other disciplines this WC will set my training level and disciplines for 2017. I never know the fine details of what I need to change until I am sharpened by the steel of you the FAI community.

Safe travels - see you all next week !
