Is this an extra race? I checked the calendar and it shows the 19th for the July race (25th as back up).

I hope we are doing an extra race though! I'd most likely be up for it. Maybe we will finally get out to the coast!

Thanks Ken.

Updated the date of the contest, sorry for the confusion. I'd like to get some circles in Scott. We can do a F event on the 5th as long as weather condition work out. I'd also be up for a low key warm up day as well.

There is a good chance that we will have a new F3F Pilot at the Race this weekend. His name is Lance, I met Lance helping DZ & Kyle with F3B Practice. He is all tuned up on hitting the Base turn Buttons. If he needs any help I know you veteran F3F pilots will do your best to make him feel welcome. Will do my best to help everyone but will have to focus on running the event. Want all of you to have a good time and get your circle quota in for the month.

Will be looking at weather forecast's in hopes we can do a Coastal F3F. Will come in handy for those of you going to San Simeon for the US "F"Trials.

Stay Tuned

Ken asked me to post up the directions again to Fort Ross..........

Fort Ross is just 15 minutes North of Jenner on Hwy 1. Since it is a State Park like Los Banos it costs $8 to enter. I bought a California Park Pass for $75. The nice thing is if I am driving home from Supersonic I can stop by Fort Ross and fly for half an hour, other wise I probably wouldn't stop and pay $8 for a quick flight.

(Fort Ross and Viking are the two most similar slopes we have to where the F3F Team Selects will be held at Wicked Sister in Sept.- only 8 more weekends to practice..)

Forcast looks very funky for the weekend. I sure hope we catch a break for once. This must be the hardest part of CD'ing . . . what ever you decide on Ken, we will support your decision.

Lately I have been watching a website called: windyty.ty

It seems pretty good for general patterns. It shows a couple big storms to the south that are going to shift the wind 180 degrees Saturday/Sunday.

Mike, I have not checked the upper bay at Ft. Ross. Looks kinda small, more west facing. Let's check it out some time!

Ok Guys, I am starting to find my way around in RC Groups. At what point do you determine where you will be flying this Sunday and how do you notify the group on the final decision? I will be flying in the SVSS F5J event on Saturday and could head up to Fort Ross after the event if that is where it is going to be held.

Lance,

You will find out in two places when and where. Now that you have posted in this thread RCG should auto subscribe you to this thread so you will get an email when someone posts here.

Usually the CD waits to the night before, Saturday night, around 7pm or so for the latest up to date weather forecast before making a final decision on time and location.

The second method of finding out where and when is via our NorCal F3F Yahoo Groups. Check your email.

Dave
