Help!
F3Bers: Team F3F USA needs YOUR help!

Hello gents-

I remember when the USA F3B team wanted help for practice before their trip to China for the WC; several F3F guys and some TD guys came to support them in Perris, CA in blistering heat.....It was like 110-115*F out there, and there we were, shagging chutes, and pressing buttons.

Now its YOUR TURN to reciprocate!

The USA F3F team will be selected on the days of May 4, 5, and 6, at San Pedro's Point Fermin. This is the first year that F3F is official, so the guys flying CANNOT BE ALLOWED to work the base buttons.
Working F3F bases is VERY EASY, but it gets monotonous after many pilots, and accuracy is VERY important on the part of the base workers to keep things fair.
Because of this, having at least 3-4 guys for each day per base is a good idea.

I myself am NOT trying out for the team due to a less than stellar financial year last year at work, so I will be there if I don't have the chance to make some "OT" that weekend.

I hope that I see some of you there.

Here is a link to the thread:

Obviously, big kudos to Tom for stepping up as CD for this.....

What I was hoping to acheive with my post, was some volunteers for base workers for even part of the three days by the body of the F3B or TD pilots in the SoCal region.

I'll be there to support the effort if I don't work.

Target and all,

I will try my best to be there. Its going to be very tough since my wife is working and I am doing the IHLGF with David the week before. But if I can get a day, I will drive up.

KP is the scheduling master, Tom.
I appreciate your stepping up, as well as Mike Smith, especially since he's got a new youngster to deal with, bravo!

If you can't get ahold of Kyle, I will call him and let him know to SHM.
I'll see you Sunday, no??
