San Simeon F3F 2 Day Contest Sept. 13-14 with Friday as a Practice Day

San Simeon F3F 2 Day Contest on Sept. 13th and 14th with Friday Sept. 12th an official practice day.

It is time for another San Simeon adventure. This will be the last one this year so don't miss out. We were able to work this event into both the SCSR and NCSS calendars this year.

Brandon Monte is very gracious and has agreed to CD the event. Thanks again for your help with this Brandon.

This is one month away.

Details:
1. AMA required as always.

2. The venue will be Wicked Sister. (the only place we are allowed to fly for now.)

3. Start Time/Pilot Meeting will be announced the night before based on Wx. forecast by 7:30pm.

4. Pilot's meeting location will be at "The Sea Breeze Inn". This is NOT where we will be flying. We will leave here to go to the flying site ~10 minutes north.

5. Just like our first race we are NOT permitted to fly anywhere in the area except at Wicked Sister and only on our event dates. If you choose to fly before our event you could ruin our opportunity to continue to fly in the San Simeon area. Sept. 12th, 13th and 14th are the only dates we are allowed to fly there.

6. Entry fee is $20, first time flyers fly for free the first day then $10 the 2nd day. Once the initial permit fees are covered ($225) then the rest of the funds go towards the USA F3F Team Fund.

7. This is a FUN fly, no series points.

8. As before, please be very respectful to any Park Rangers we meet.

Once again we are limited to 20 pilots:
1. Brandon Monte - 2.4 - FS4
2. David Olson - 2.4 - FS4
3. David Cortina - 2.4 - FS4
4. Dave Freund - 2.4 - SS4
5. Dan Field - 2.4 - N124
6. Steve Kratz - 2.4 - Precision
7. Brandon Kiely - 2.4 - Precision
8. Jim Weinberg - 2.4 - Blade XL
9. Jeremy Tyler - 2.4 - Precision
10. Kyle Paulson - 2.4 - FS3

Other things to do: Hiking, kayaking, fishing, elephant seal viewing, campfires, etc.

There is a GREAT camp site close by, the camp fires are a lot of fun and memorable.

San Simeon Creek Campground: Call Reserve America at 1(800)444-7285
You cannot reserve a specific spot. You pick a spot when you arrive. The spots are $35 a night. There are showers too.

Hotels: there are a bunch in San Simeon or Cambria. The Sea Breeze Inn is the most popular. Motel 6 is close by as well.

Many of us actually brought our wives last time and they all hung out and had a great time.......just saying.....something to think about.

-----------------------------------------------

The First 20 Pilots that post will get in..............who is up for another San Simeon adventure?

Yeah, we could have planned this a little better, sorry about that. Instead of wrapping things up, don't you mean cleaning up?:-)

I'm in barring the unforeseen.
This has been one of the fun ones.
Hope the weather co-operates this go-round.
Thanks Dave.

Great that you guys can make it!

September is suppose to be a better month for more consistent winds than October. Although last Oct. we had great conditions. Fingers crossed.

Seems to me that someone came up with weather history by month but I can't find it. I assume it was for Point Piedras Blancas, Cambria is too sheltered.

Man, I would love to make this one. I had such a great time meeting and flying with Dan and the southerners in June. I' ll see how the family calendar looks once the kiddos get back to school. It is great having so many opportunities to fly with such a cool bunch of folks.
