LACOLLE INTERNATIONAL 2017†CHAMPIONSHIP

The Lacolle International F5J is sanctioned on the F5J Intertour 2018†and ESL; points earned counting in the world F5J Intertour, but do not count for ESL standing because it's a third day contest (ESL bylaws, article IX.11).

The two ALES contests are MAAC, ALES League†and ESL sanctioned.

RULES

F5J will be by the†FAI rules, but allowing emergency motor restarts which earns 0 points for the round.

ALES will be by the AMA rules for event 463, except that†altimeters and arrestor devices/skegs will not be permitted. The ALES launch height will be 200m or 150m, called by the CD one day prior to the competition and will remain fixed throughout the day. Landing is measured against†a 5 meters tape for 50 points.

DAILY AWARDS

1st to 3rd place

Lacolle International grand champion award for best combined score for the three days.

REGISTRATION IS STRONGLY ENCOURAGED and limited to 48 tickets. Check-in†is 30 minutes before each individual competition.

Fees are 20$ CAD per day, which totals to about 45$ USD for the three days. All fees include lunch, if preregistered before August 17. Childs eat free.

This event is hosted by the Arpents v'air RC club on our beautiful sod farm in Lacolle, QC Canada, minutes from the Canada-US border. We expect participation from Quebec,†Ontario and the nearby states of NY, NJ, NH, MA, VE, PA. Perhaps other places?

Dry camping is possible on the site.

Hi,

Please note the following precisions and changes:
- Skegs/arrestor devices will not be permitted.
- The ALES launch height will be 200m or 150m, called by the CD one day prior to the competition and will remain fixed throughout the day.

I've updated the post #1 accordingly.

Thanks

Another little change.
The F5J contest on Friday cannot count for ESL standing because it's a third day contest (ESL bylaws, article IX.11).

The 2016-17 Intertour season finishes the weekend before so the Lacolle International is on the F5J Intertour 2017-18 calendar.
