FSS #5, September 1st & 2nd, 2012, at Kennyworld, Ocala, Florida


FSS Unlimited Thermal Duration Soaring Contest #5 will be held on Saturday, September 1st, and Sunday, September 2nd, 2012, at Kennyworld, west of Ocala, Florida.

Saturday, the pilot's meeting will be held at 9:45 and the contest will begin at 10:00. Sunday, the pilot's meeting will be held at 8:45 and the contest will begin at 9:00. On Saturday we'll try to complete seven full rounds, and on Sunday we'll limit the contest length to not starting a new round after 2:00 P.M.

Pilots will be classified as Experts and Sportsmen, and awards will be given for first, second, and third places in both classes. On both days the beginning task time will be announced at the pilot's meeting and task times may change after each round. Other rules will be discussed later in this thread.

Kennyworld is located at 17150 SE 60th St, Morriston, FL 32668 on the south side of the road.



The flying site, which is the home of the One Wing Low Squadron, is provided by Ken Goodwin. The contest will be run by the Pompano Hill Flyers with equipment generously provided by The Orlando Buzzards.

The nearest hotels are at Exit 354 of Interstate 75. The contest site is a 20 mile drive from there. Other nearby hotels are at Exit 350 (Route 200, SW College Road) and Exit 352 (Route 40, West Silver Springs Blvd.) Our favorite is the Red Roof Inn.

Please monitor this thread for changes or additions.

See you there!
