Gator F3B World Cup Event is on in Florida on Mar 1, 2, and 3, 2013

We have started registration for the 3rd Annual Gator F3B to be held in Central Florida on March 1st, 2nd and 3rd of 2013. This is a great opportunity to fly F3B in balmy weather while the snow is still piled up against your door up North.

The event is registered with the F3B World Cup organizers also which adds much interest from the Eurotour pilots. We have entries coming from Sth America this year also with Andre Cordova bringing at least three from Chile to make a Team. It's a lot of fun and even if you don't usually fly F3B consider giving it a shot. You can fly your F3J model if necessary and you will learn heaps about thermal soaring. And the good thing is you get to learn from some of the best in the world.

WE are going to try to bring our International CD Roman Voijtech back for the event again like last year. We will let you know the details of that once we have discussed with Roman. Check out his website here with many details of his famous LoLo altimeters etc.

Mail in Entry Form is here

Online Entry Form is here.

Pilot Invitation Letter is here with all details.

Get your entry in. Make a commitment and lets go fly F3B.

Yay, Gator F3B

I am in again.

I will try to convince Helmut, Armin and others to come too.

We made good advertisement in the german forums (and in Aufwind a year before), so hopefully more will come over the pond.

I am positive that Helmut will come again, he absolutely loves the contest (more rounds than Eurotour, yet less stressful, plus superb weahter and faster air ).

Ok, I am going to try really hard to make this happen. Put me down as 50/50 for now, but I will prioritize this above the February events.
