2017 CVRC FALL SOARING FESTIVAL Oct. 7-8


The 2017 CVRC Fall Soaring Festival registration is now open. You can register at https://cvrcsoaring.wordpress.com or www.rcsoaring.com (the rcsoaring.com site also has the mail in registration form for those who prefer to mail it in). As always we look forward to seeing everyone there October 7-8, with a day of ALES on Friday October 6th as well. (And a quick reminder, the registration for the Friday ALES event is separate from the sat/sunday Fall Fest contest).

More details to come (and yes, still no foul line). Thank you for your patience, and should anyone want to contact me directly please feel free to do so at: 4adam16@gmail.com or (559)303-0737.

Again, looking forward to seeing you there.

Adam

2017 Fall Fest. Oct. 6/7/8


As the title says it time for the 44nd edition of the Fall Soaring Festival October 6/7/8

Adam has opened up registration for this years Fall Fest. You can go on line at <rcsoaring.com> for Saturday and Sundays part of the weekend. Click the contest section on the banner at the top of the page. There you will find a online application with pay pal. You can also download a entry form and pay by check.

We will fly the usual classes Saturday and Sunday plus the addition of a ALES class. You ALES guys will be limited to 150m or 30 seconds for this one. The landings will be the same for all classes.

We will also hold a Friday ALES only event. This will be a 150m or 30 seconds with a landing tape. Kent Nogy and his professional crew of Mark Taylor and Tim Johnson will CD this one. Sign up for Fridays ALES will be on the field at 11am under the pavilion with flying to start at noon. The entry fee for Fridays ALES will be $20.00. The later start will give those who need time to travel without having to spending an extra night

For ALES no skegs will be allowed all 3 days. You must supply your own limiter.

Those who want to practice on Friday, not to worry, we will have the basin open so you can set up your winches and hi-starts and practice while the Friday ALES is being flown.

This years rains have allowed us to restart our watering program. So the grass is lush and green again.

Please feel free to contact Adam with all your questions. <4adam16@gmail.com>

We would like to thank you in advance for your participation all these years. You have helped make this contest what it is today.

For the first time in several years the FSF falls on my work week. I plan to make it work some how. Hate missing this event.

Maybe bring on some FPV models to do some aerial tours. Better yet, how about some fpv racing...at night! Awesome. Let's make Visalia what it used to be: a big-ass contest with barbecues and night activities and fun!

Adam, the entry form was different than I remember and I think you've missed my dad's entry. I paid for both me and Brad Clasen. We are timing each other as well. The details were in the message of the entry form.

I'd have pm'd or emailed you, but others tell me you don't answer, so I'll give this a try. Thanks.
