F3J Team Selection Bid Request for 2006 team
Dear Soaring Enthusiasts,
The Soaring Team Selection Committee, under the sponsorship of the Academy
of Model Aeronautics, is requesting bids from your club or group to host the
F3J Team Selection Finals. The actual contest should take place between July
And December 2005. The selection committee recommends the contest take
place over Labor Day weekend if possible.
The host club is responsible for organizing and running the contest, which
normally takes place over three days of flying. Full support is available
from the selection committee in helping the winning bidder with planning for
this contest. This is the competition that will select the three best F3J
pilots in the country to represent the United States in the next World
Championships, to be held during the Summer of 2006 in Slovakia.
USA soaring pilots have placed very well at previous World Championships
with many wins and high placing, both as Team champions and Individual
Your Club or group can be a part of this continuing success. You will also
have the opportunity of watching the very best F3J flyers in the country in
action and see the latest advances in this sport.
Your club does not need experience in the F3J event, or have any local F3J
flyers to enter a bid to host this contest. All you need is a flat flying
field with no slope lift available and the desire to see your clubs prestige
lifted to a world class level. Your club will need to supply sufficient
help to man the contest. Your club will not be asked to donate money for
this event. The committee has the equipment needed for the actual contest.
An entry fee for the pilots entered can cover local expenses, such as
porta-potties, tables, chairs, etc.
Complete bid package information can be obtained from Lisa Johnson in the
competition department at AMA. Her address is listed below. General
informational questions can be addressed to the Soaring Team Selection
Chairman at the address listed below. Bids may be submitted to Lisa Johnson
any time from now till April 30, 2005.
Obviously, the sooner your bid is submitted and can be considered by the
committee the more time will be available to plan and prepare for this
contest. If necessary, the team selection committee chairman, or his
representative, will visit one of your club meetings and your site.
