SCSR F3F Contest at Vincent Hill--May 30

Next weekend is our one contest of 2015 at famous Vincent Hill, just off the 14 freeway at the Pearblossom exit. Vincent has given us many fine contests, including the Team Select two years ago.
Temperatures should be just right, and the valley channels the breeze from the coast right over the slope on its way to the big suck over Palmdale. Add in a thermal and hang on for 10 ripping laps.
Most of the regulars know the road and the requirements for the last 600 yards. We should have enough qualified 4WD vehicles to ferry everyone down and back, because we shall meet at the cell tower at 1030AM and proceed from there.

Bring food and sufficient liquids for the day.

I will keep an eye on the conditions, and if any updates are needed I will do my best to post them Thursday.

Please reply with intentions to race and if you have a 4WD for transport.

Bill

Dan, come on out a race. It was a fun time at GM, and it would be fun to race with you again.

Have not seen enough pilots signed up to make a valid race of it. Come on, guys, this is a great site and the right time of year to be there.

If you have been hanging back, make the commitment. if you have a buddy who wants to come out and have a go, let me know.

Stand up and be counted. Points are on the line.

Not a plane,

OK, I have 4 for sure, a wobbler, and a maybe.

Acton predicts 92 deg and WSW at 13. Palmdale Aviation predicts 95 deg and WSW at 17.

If I do not have 6 guaranteed fliers by 6PM Friday, I will be forced to cancel. Sad, but that is just the way it is. Jim and Dave C , time to commit .

Vincent Cancelled

Guys: Real sorry to do this but we have only 5 fliers and we need a minimum of 6 to have a race, and 10 + to have a good event. Perhaps we can reschedule sometime this year, but we need more participation to make it worth the time and effort..

Adios,

Bill
