Looking forward! Can’t wait!

Mike Lee thank you for taking on this task for our community! You are a good man and appreciated more than you could know. Thank you Mike!

Robert Cavazos thank you for making this happen with the local club and helping us connect the dots so this event can happen out at the Perris field! You have been instrumental and laid down the ground work to making this all happen! Thank you Robert!

And last but not least TK….the glue! TK I don’t think most people understand how much you help our community behind the curtain facilitating, making decisions, connecting the dots and following through. You are a friend, a team mate, a world class pilot and a servant to the US soaring community. Dude you rock!

TS here we come!

Unfortunately I am unable to participate as a pilot this cycle, however, will make every effort to be at the TS contest on Friday to help as needed.

First I also would like to thank Mike Lee and everyone else involved in setting up this TS, you guys are awesome.

Two questions. Can I send my registration to Mike by email or does it need to be snail mail?

How do I send the $20 fee to AMA?

Thanks,

G

Hi Glauco,

At the bottom of the entry form I show my PayPal account name allowing the payment by that methodd and then just zap the written entry form to me by email. I hope that helps.

Actually, all payments should be made to the AMA. You can do this over the phone to Colleen Pierce and pay via credit card.
If people have already sent payments to Mike, he will have to forward those to Colleen.
(sorry for any confusion - I should have read all of the document Mike posted . . .)

Kyle,
If you know 'em and want to invite 'em, it's your call!

I'm not inviting anyone, just trying to find out who's going!

3 man teams are allowed. It is much more difficult to compete without a team, but it can be done. I don't recommend it. So, in my opinion, yes you need to form a team to compete.

This is the reason I wanted to get the discussion going about who is going or might be interested in going. You can start talking about teaming arrangements etc.
I know there are already 2 or 3 teams that are already formed, but I'm not sure about any more. Ideally you want to get at least one person on your team with some F3B experience. It will make the event more fun.
