Rules and Tasks :
F3K tasks...........all of them

F3k rules.............
-Do Not fly over the No Fly Zone
-100 point penalty for hitting any cars/tents or human life forms
-clock stops when the plane comes to rest
-record the truncated time on the score sheet as shown by the stop watch.
a time of 2 minutes is recorded as 2:00. 2 seconds is 0:02...just writing down 2 is confusing
to the scorekeeper.
-launch and land within the launch box..it is a big box.
-pilot must be in the launch box when the plane comes to rest for a valid landing.

Dave:

Yeah, sure, I'll come.

I'm on 2.4, should still have both Blasters, AMA #587981.

I will probably be there Friday, and would sure appreciate taking lunch at the Airport with the rest of you.

Yours, Greg
