Pt. Fermin Saturday F3F contest/ Team USA

Good morning gentleman, SoCalSlopeRacing will be holding an F3F event at Pt. Fermin on Sat. Oct. 2nd. We will be commencing around noon and racing until about 5:00. This is the final tune up race for Team USA before they leave for Germany to race in the Viking F3F world races. This post is to allow as many Fermin guys as much time as possible to see this and be patient in our use of the hill. The club has been using Whitepoint for practices, but with baseball going on there leaves very little landing area for big planes. Pt. Fermin and Whitepoint are very similar to the sites to be used in Germany, and makes for great simulations of what is coming for Team USA. In advance, we appreciate your support. Up to this date, the club has only used Fermin once this year, and it was a solid event. Thanks again, Warren D. Concreteman Ray- I need an email from you. concreteman006@sbcglobal.net

Email sent, looking forward to watching the team sharpen the blade to perfection. Try and squeeze a little window in for us Yokals if you can.
Best of Luck, and I will be there Saturday filming at the very least.

Not just your camera Tim, how about trying out that Storm? None of the F3F regulars know this slope as well as you. This is a great chance to show us how best to fly this slope, and more importantly, how to land :-)

My personal score on the landing part is not the best (my flap stuck! Honest! That's my story and I'm sticking too it!)

I should point out a few other details. You don't need an F3F plane to fly F3F. Any performance oriented plane is welcome. Last time we had one at Fermin, there was a local guy with a 2M Swift whose plane really cranked!

Also, as this is practice event, there isn't any sort of sign up fee, but AMA membership is neccssary to participate.

Cheers,

NW

No no, the more pilots the merrier. The AMA emails you a confirmation, right? That should have your new AMA number on it. With that, you are good to go. If they didn't call or email them and they will email you one right away (I've done this in the past when my renewal was late).

Cheers,

NW

You can go online and get a copy of your membership-- it's available as soon as they get the check -- that way- you don't have to wait for the snail mail return!

I hope you guys have a great time and I wish I could be there but I am stuck in Visalia flying in circles that weekend, I need some speed before I leave for the Viking Race.
The F3F guys can really use the air well before the PSS guys can even fly so with a little planning everyone should be happy.

have a great comp and if any of the Fermin locals have a good turning model please come on out and enter. It's something new to try!

Why am I always offshore when you guys schedule these things?!
You guys must be in tight with my boss, right?

Good luck all, hope the wind is good. It should be since I can't fly that weekend....

Kick A$$ in Germany!!!!
