SCSR F3F - June 12 - White Point
This months SCSR F3F on June 12 will be at White
Point. This will be our Second official F3F at White
Point. If it's anything like our first F3F we had there
last month, we should be in for some good close racing.
The racing will start at noon. Be there by 11:00 to
get signed up, and to help with the course setup. I'll
be the CD for this one.
This is the racing season folks, so I want to see a
good turn out. Coastal racing is the best racing.
Especially for F3F. Generally, if you get a better time
than you did in the last round, it's because you flew
a better course, not because you caught a thermal. The
best way to improve your skills is to race at coastal
We are once again running our newbe special. Newbes fly
for free, the $5.00 entry is waved. So if you've never raced
F3F with us before, come on out. All you need is an current
AMA card, and a plane, any plane. Last month we had
three new guys show up flying a moth, a MB 60" and a Opus.
You don't need the latest 3 meter super ship to compete and

F3F 2004 - White Point 06-12-04 Results
Below you will find a short race report by Nathan Woods and the results.
From the CDs prespective, the race went really well. The wind came on like it was supposed to, everybody helped out, and we got in a lot of rounds. We had a couple of new faces show up this race. I'd like to see some more next race.
A small correction to Nathan's report, this was my first win. I came in second place at last months F3F, also at White Point.
Hello Race Fans,
Today was another great WhitePoint day, with consistent air, gorgeous weather, easy landing, and good friends.
Congrat's to Mike for peeling off another win at Whitepoint. It's safe to say he has this course nailed, and finds those corners better than everyone else on this slope.
Whitepoint offered a technically challenging race today, with shifting winds and varying lift bands. Ballasting was important, and finding the cleanest line was essential.
The fight for the top 5 spots changed hands frequently today, but the fight against the clock proved the most challenging. The goal today was to break 50 second air. Joe Wurts came Oh So Close in one beautifully flown round which he commenced with the battle cry "Fly angry!". His reward for his precision flying? A fifty point zero zero. As in, 50.00 - once again the sub 50 time proved ellusive until Tom Copp got a meaty starting dive run, and clocked out a 49.43, shouting out "Take that Hill!" at the end of it.
Bill DelHagen missed several rounds at the end, so his final score is misleading, and JW had to miss the last round, thus having to use some less than perfect scores from earlier in the day.
Bob Bingham's flying proved to be the most entertaining today. He was flying a brand new NXY with the CG a bit aft and WAAAAYYY too much throw. He was all over the sky and elicited many oh's, ah's, and Oh Sh&T's! from turn judges and spectators alike.
Last year was Dan Fields breakout year. This year, clearly that honor goes to Mike Sheridan. Congrat's Mike. It was fun watching you have fun.
Today was a lot of fun, and it was great seeing more new faces. Next F3F is July 10th!
