CASL Toys For Tots F3K/TD Contest Dec. 17, 2011

On December 17, 2011 Central Arizona Soaring League will be having a contest to benefit children in need of gifts at Christmas. This is something we do every year but this year we have added a twist, in the past it’s been Thermal duration. For 2011 the contest will combine F3K with TD in teams of two pilots. Here are the idea teams of two pilots “Random” one flying F3K and the other TD. Total flight time for each round will be 15 minutes, F3K will have the first 8 minutes, launch as many times as you needed but longest fight counts. We will have a launch and land buzzer. Then TD is up to finish the round, one launch per pilot seven-minute window, which will include landing points. At the end of each round will add both pilots times together including landing points. For each second of flight time the team will be awarded one point, including landing points “standard CASL landing tapes. We wanted to keep it simple and fun, remember this is a benefit “Toys For Tots”. Please come out and join us it should be great fun and help children in need.

Entry fee: provide a toy for a boy or girl unwrapped $10.00 minimum

Location: “Water Tank” Chandler Arizona

Date: December 17, 2011

Time: pilots meeting 8:45 am / first flight 9:00 am

Two winches will be provided for TD

Contact: Donnie Langdon 602-326-3624

CASL will also be having its monthly meeting at the field starting at 8:00 am, any person flying in the contest is welcome to join.

Thank you,
Donnie Langdon

Can the hlg's get landing points?

How about something different? HlG's get one flight, landing points. TD have multiple flights, have to be hand launched , no landing points
