The 8th Annual John Erickson Memorial DLG contest

The 8th Annual John Erickson Memorial DLG contest - - Sponsored proudly by MKS Servos, USA.

8 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.

Final approval has been given, so it's time to make arrangements for where you are going to stay.

DATE: TBD - Postponed due to weather

Final Approved Location: 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!

I really hope this contest brings some of the old gang pilots out of the woodwork. Get the season off to a good start.

My attendance is about as probable as finding organic mustard greens in a hipster's studio apartment in San Fran...that's some pretty good odds.

Hey all you SoCal folks... in case you need to dust off your F3K-fu to get ready for this event, we're having an end-of-year contest at ElDo on the Dec 17th. The more the merrier...

Just sayin'.
