OK guys and gals,
We have finally worked out the details and due to the kindness of Dave Olson, Kyle Paulson and Tom Kiesling volunteering to assist with the logistics we are going to run the event at Perris CA on March 20th to 22nd 2015.
The website has been updated with details and registration is open today.
Please go here at and register for the event.
We will have the same accommodation as the Team Selects at the Red Lion arranged by Dave Olson.
Pilots can practice at the field on Thursday 19th and winch testing, helper training and a short pilot meeting will be held late evening of Thursday 19th.
We need helpers to put their hand up on this thread so we can start a list so please let us know if you can help on any or all days.
If you are a pilot who would like to try F3B then this is your chance to come out and play. Please register and come fly.

The official Invitation is available for download here. It includes driving directions and other details.

The official entry form is also available here for download if you cannot register and pay online with Paypal and want to mail you entry with a check.

Look forward to seeing y'all in CA

That is Mike throwing my Shooter some years ago on the picture. Which reminds me that we should alert our friends from Chile too.


PS: just sent the Chile guys an e-mail, I hope they can make it again.

Something tells me I should get on a B winch and actually practice this thing before the contest.
