F3J in the Desert

In conjunction with the opening of the SWC registration you may also now register for F3J in the Desert. We are allowing 5 man teams this time to allow more entries. The organizer reserves the right to fill your team if you do not fill it yourself. This allows us to maximize participation.

You can use the link on the SWC registration page or register directly at:
http://rmsadenver.com/f3jDesertSWC.htm
We expect this event to fill up quickly, so get your entries in.

Teem MoBros! Lol!

George competed last year and told me how much fun it was so I am going to give it a try. Beware of the neon pink supra, it'll hurt your eyes.

As Vladimir told me at the last Visalia Fall Fest, "Only real men fly pink." You are a man amongst boys, Charlie

Filling up Fast - Teams are allocated

This has been an outstanding response boys and girls…

All teams have now been allocated. I’m afraid we only have room for 10 lanes and the 10 team slots are now spoken for. Let the fun begin! If you are not already planning on joining one of the existing teams (even if you are signed up) then YOU must now negotiate a place on a team.

The team list with team managers is at:
http://rmsadenver.com/cgi-bin/F3JTeams.pl

YOU must now contact a team that is not full and see if you can fly on their team. Teams that are NOT full by the time that I have exactly 50 entries will be filled by me assigning the remaining pilots to the remaining slots. The managers for each team are listed on the web page. Note that their email address has a ~ in it instead of @ so they don’t get found by spammers. Fix their emails addresses and send them emails to join their teams.

We currently have 33 of the 50 slots committed. I know of several that are pending registrations, but the team knows who is going to fill the slots.

If we get at least 10 pilots on the waiting list, I may change the team size to 6 pilots and fill each team with a member from the waiting list, but that is a last resort.

Good luck..
Jim

Since you foolishly made your team an open Team and due to the fact that no other team wanted me, I "joined" your team after Darwin told me it was open. However, one point I must make. I am ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY NOT going to wear cartoon character PJ bottoms under my shorts. Despite my normal low standards, I must draw the line someplace!!

See you in February!!

Good grief. Little more than 10 hours with all team lanes taken, six teams full and the pilot's list is just shy of full. There's a message there somewhere...FAI in the States, baby!

We are glad to have you!

I was going to say "Teem PJ's" but I realize that's not for everyone.

By now I suspect you knew what you were getting into when you saw our names on there. You sir are a brave man...

TNT.... Looking forward to seeing everyone that can make it... Sorry the glider vandal can't come... but being a DAD is much more important!

I'm on the Albuquerque F3J team... With me, they'll probably need the rest of you to cut them a little slack... i.e. Be gentle... it's my first time...
