SOAR F3K TS Qualifier July 14 and 15 2012, Newark, IL *** SITE UPDATE ***


This will be a 2-day contest.

The lovely and talented Steve Meyer will be the CD.

Registration opens at 8AM each day. Pilots meeting will be at
8:45AM on Saturday and 8:30 AM on Sunday.

No round will begin after 3PM on Sunday.

Awards will be given to the top three.

The entry fee will be $15 per day, $25 for both.

Weather permitting we will have a barbeque at the Central Sod office Saturday night.

**** NEW SITE LOCATION ****

We will be flying on our new Central Sod field located in Newark, IL:

12915 STATE ROUTE 47, NEWARK, IL, 60541-9552 US

No pre-registration is required but I would like to have a
pilot count for the barbecue.

So if you're interested in flying with us let me know here (include your frequency) or send me an email:

Oh. Um... same weekend as the SC contest. I'll likely make a game time decision based on the weather.

Right with you I am. I was thinking I might trek to this one, then realized it was overlapping a business trip to Washington state.... My calendar looks like a dream coat.
