7th Annual John Erickson Memoral DLG contest

The 7th Annual John Erickson Memorial DLG contest - Jan 16-17, 2016 - Sponsored proudly by MKS Servos, USA.

7 years ago a bunch of friends decided it was important to remember a great guy that left our hobby far too soon. Every January since then we have gathered in the spirit of comradery and competition in honor of our true friend, John Erickson. It is my pleasure to invite you all to join us again this year.

DATE: Jan 16-17 ,2016

PLACE: SCAMPS RC Field - Perris, CA

Map link

GPS co-ordinates for the contest site: 33.781617, -117.197846

Directions - From the 215 fwy exit on 4th St. (which turns into Redlands) and go north to the first intersection which is San Jacinto. Go right(east) about 1/2 mile and turn right on the dirt road on the east side of the wash (yes, the dry stream bed). The field is marked by a pile of rubber tires. It's nicer than it sounds!

Tasks List - TBD

Flyoff for top 10 pilots at conclusion of preliminaries.

Event Registration

We will be using F3X Vault for registration again this year. The registration page is here:

Entry payment: Log in and click on the "Update Your Registration Info" link to reach the page with the PayPal button.

Overnight camping on site will be allowed on Friday and Saturday night. We have also received word that the Scamps field will be closed down for us, so we will be free from no-fly zones during the contest. Please respect the old no-fly zone on Friday, as they will have activity during our practice day.

Many thanks need to be offered here, both to Clay Hollingsworth who has put so much time and dedication into presenting this contest, and to MKS Servos which has been sponsoring this event since the very beginning. Clay please enjoy your reduced responsibilities this year, and please join us to actually, you know, fly :-)

And it looks like we'll have some international participation too!
Hakan Sjoberg from Sweden has registered. We'll be sure to give him a great SoCal welcome.

Let's get registered! Two months to go!

Launch high. Fly low.
Lex, there are two dates listed for the contest.
F3x vault has it on 1/16-17 (Friday to Saturday)
Announcement has it on 1/17-18 (Saturday to Sunday)

I plan to hang around Friday to Sunday, though. ;-)


OMG I'm losing it!!! Lol

Sorry, guys. I'll still see you there anyway!

Retirement is good
My calendar suggests Jan 16 and 17 is a Saturday and Sunday. That would make the 15th, Friday, a practice day.
