2017 USA F3B Team Selection Event - June 10-12, 2016

I am pleased to announce that the 2017 USA F3B Team Selection contest will be held in Perris, CA from Fri. June 10 through Sun. June 12, 2016.

The Perris field is home to the Riverside Radio Control Club and the Southern California Antique Model Plane Society (SCAMPS). They have graciously allowed us to use their excellent facility once again.

Contest Director: Sheldon Smith

Event Coordinator: Tom Watson

Head Jurist: TBD

We will use F3X Vault for event scoring. You must do three things to enter:
  1. Register at This is the system of record for event scoring.
  2. Submit an F3B Program entry form to AMA ($20 program fee).
  3. Submit an F3B Finals entry form to AMA ($125 contest fee).
The AMA forms are attached here. Please get your entries in ASAP.

As always, helpers are an integral part of any F3B event. If you would like to volunteer, please post in this thread and indicate what day(s) you are available. Lunch will be provided for helpers every day, at no cost.

If you intend to participate, please also post in this thread.

See "Lodging, Logistics and Other Info" for additional information.

2017 USA F3B TS Coordinator

Lodging, Logistics and Other Info

The closest motel (Red Lion Inn) has no rooms available for the contest weekend, due to a large sporting event in the area.

The next best option is Motel 6 in Menifee Sun City, a few miles south of the field at the 215 Fwy and McCall Blvd. We have arranged for a group discount, so when calling to make your reservation, use the code "USF3B Team Selection." If you have already made reservations, or have problems making them directly with the motel, please call the Group Sales Department at 800-544-4866 to apply the discounted rate. To qualify, reservations must be made by May 17.

Practice Day
The field will be available for practice all day Thu. June 9. Helper availability for on-course flying is an unknown at this point.

Winch Batteries
We are not providing for winch battery rentals or purchases. You must make your own arrangements.

A porta-john will be at the field by noon Thu. June 9
