2nd Annual California Challenge F3K Contest - June 4 & 5 2011 -Visalia, CA

Since we had such blast last year, we decided to do it again! F3K is alive and well on the west coast and we have been invited back to the Central Valley RC club's beautiful field in Visalia, California.

This will be a 2 day USA F3K Tour contest and USA team fund raiser.

* Full F3K rules - except no official timers for Poker round(s)
* Number of pilots in flyoff will depend on number of entries
* Task list is TBD
* Number of rounds will depend on number of entrants and number of flight groups required.
* No preliminary round will begin after 4:30 on Saturday and 11:00 on Sunday
* Only one entry per frequency allowed on 72/50/53 Mhz.
* No "Team" protection - fully random matrix will be used
* Pilot's meeting at 8:30am each day; first heat starts before 9:00
* Lunch provided during a break in the action no shorter than 30 minutes
* Camping is permitted on the field starting Thursday night through Sunday.

We intend for this to be as sportsman friendly as possible, so come out and we'll help you improve your skills!

Practice day on Friday will include time for any sportsman/new pilots to Q&A with the experts and receive some personal assistance/coaching/tips.

Entry fee is $40 and event t-shirts ($25) can be ordered at on the online entry form here. Navigate to the "contest" tab, and look for link to the "2011 F3K Cal Challenge".

All profit from this contest will go to the US F3K team fund to support our team.

Please consider joining us for a fun little get together!

Thanks for reading!

As a member of CVRC I fly on our beautifull field once or twice a week.

I was a spectator last year as I'm still refining my crashing abilities. So now that my crashing is becomming less and less, I will have to build my new DLG thats sitting in the box and compete in my first DLG contest as a Sportsman.

I believe there are at least two other members here that will compete also.

I'm really looking foreward to this as it was great just being a spectator last year.

As a member of CVRC, if there is anything I can do to help, let me know.

Now,I'm on the way to the field to practice.
