Contest
Tangerine Soaring Championships Nov 18 - 20 - Seeded Man on Man

Here you go soaring guys and gals,
The 38th annual Tangerine is coming up fast and you need to be there. One of USA's oldest annual soaring events the Tangerine was first contested in Orlando in 1973. It has a rich history of accomplished attendees from all over the globe and this year won't be any exception.

We have great warm weather in November while most of you are shivering in the snow. We have a fantastic soaring site in Oviedo FL very close to accommodation, restaurants and amenities and we have a great club to make you feel welcome and enjoy the friendliest Soaring contest on the US calendar. The Buzzards Home Field is located at: Entrance off Red Ember Road, Oviedo, Florida.

The contest is sanctioned by the AMA and with awards every day for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in Expert and Sportsman class. Contesting DLG and RES on Friday 18th (BEFORE Thanksgiving) and Unlimited on Saturday Nov 19th and Sunday Nov 20th with a five way flyoff Sunday afternoon for the Tangerine Grand Champion.

We will have a ball with DLG on Friday in the am starting at 9:00am and RES on Friday afternoon. In charge to be none other than our own Super CD Raed Elazzawi.
Unlimited flown on Sat and Sun will see the return of Seeded Man on Man and CD'd also by Raed and Ed White for the most fun TD format there is.

We will have lunch orders taken by Gerry as you register each day and he will then make a run to obtain the lunches and bring them back to the field. Drinks will be available all day at Gerrys "store." The reduced entry fee this year reflects that lunch is not included in the entry. We welcome all competitors to bring their families for a great weekend of soaring bliss.

Heres a link to our website where there are full details .....

Get your Unlimited, RES or DLG under your arm and hit the road before Thanksgiving weekend to enjoy some fun in the sun in Florida. See how you compare with Florida's finest.!!!

Great job Gordon.
We are really excited to be holding this event.
This year our Saturday/Sunday contests will be Man on Man.
It really changes the dynamics of the contest, and levels the field a bit.
You are not competing against the whole window, just your flight group.
Changes at the top come quickly.
Please join us for another fun event.
If enough interest is shown, I will book dinner for Saturday night.
Thanks,
Ed

I'll be there, and in post #2 Paul (Radian) said he's coming. In addition I expect that Jamie Mercado, Larry Squire, Dan Johns, Mike Williams, and Juan Yoshikay (a new member of our Pompano Hill Flyers club) will be there. I'll see who I can confirm this coming Saturday.

Count me in! Most likely Friday (DLG) and Sunday but it could change to Friday and Satruday. Either way, I won't miss it this year (knock on wood as last year I was sick in bed!! )
