Utah Red Rock F3K Challenge 2012

Utah DLG invites you to the second annual “Utah Red Rock F3K Challenge” in St. George UT, population ~100,000 - elevation 2860’.

March 31 - April 1, 2012. This will be a USA F3K Tour and TS qualifying event. Beginners and expert alike are welcome. Lunch will be provided both days, along with breakfast snacks and coolers full of cold drinks round the clock. 8:30AM pilot meeting. 9:00AM first flight. Task list to be posted at a later date. The field will be available for practice and clinics on Friday March 30th.

Turner Turf Farm is the field location (1075 East Telegraph Street, Washington, UT – MAP). On-site overnight camping will be permitted this year (must be out of the sprinkler arm path). There is also an RV Park literally just across the street (Winter Haven RV Resort). There many nice public campgrounds in the nearby area; as well as convenient and affordable hotels/motels, restaurants, and services of all types.

Southern Utah is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful places in the world, with its unique red rock formations and spectacular canyons. Daytime temps should be around 70. There is much to see and do, so bring the whole family and enjoy the natural wonders. Zion National Park is only a few minutes away, and is a MUST SEE (PICS, VIDEO). Can you brave a hike to the top of Angels Landing (VIDEO)? Easier hikes are available, or tour the park from the road in the free shuttles. Great boating, bass fishing, and ATV riding at Sand Hollow (HERE). World class golf in some of the most stunning settings imaginable (HERE).

Entry fee $40 to cover expenses of food, prizes, AMA sanction & insurance, restrooms, and land owner gratuity. Any remaining proceeds will be donated to the USA F3K 2013 team fund. Please feel free to include an extra amount above and beyond your registration fee for the Team. Not required but highly encouraged. We're all for supporting the Team however we can, and contributing a little to the fund each time we gather to play this game is a good way to help. THANK YOU in advance. Please register in advance by posting here or sending me a PM. Include your full name and Tx frequencies. Please PayPal your entry fee to UtahDLG@gmail.com.

AMA membership required for all participating pilots. Please bring your card. On-field signup will be available, but better to do it online (HERE) before the contest date. Just print out the receipt with your AMA number on it and bring with you.

Come play with us!

Oh there will be lots of fun dings to do while you are here. Our focus is on Fun!!!!!!!

Hopefull you can find even more fun dings to do this time over last time.

I know a few smugglers who come through your area daily and they could get you to the exit by the field easy enough.

The return trip would be more of a problem as most of these guys fly home or get stuck in the prison system....
