CVRC F5J in Visalia 2018


CVRC F5J in Visalia - March 24th & 25th


Central Valley RC Soaring Club is pleased to announce the CVRC F5J in Visalia 2018 contest at the premier soaring site in central California. Tim Johnson will be the CD for this event.

We are planning on completing qualifying rounds by 1:00PM on Sunday, followed by 3 flyoff rounds, and hope to finish up by 3:00PM, so people can get driving home.
We will be using smartphone scoring so if you have a smartphone you will be able to enter scores for yourself and your buddy. Shortly before the contest we will send out an email with more details on this.
Registration is now open, go to CVRC’s website: cvrcsoaring.com the link is on the bottom of the home page or go to RCSoaring’s contest page: http://www.rcsoaring.com/. Please fill out the form completely including AMA#. On the registration page under ‘Notes’ there is a “Rules and Processes” document. Please review, we will be waiving the no-restart FAI F5J rule. Entry fees will be $55 for seniors and $30 for juniors. Lunch will be provided both Saturday and Sunday.

Lots of good information can be found at www.f5j-usa.com/ including rules explanations and a link to the current FAI rules.

The CVRC F5F in Visalia 2018 contest will be a part of the F5J-USA Tour (http://www.f5j-usa.com/f5j-usa-tour-information/)as well as the international F5J Intertour

Give the thread a bump. Looks like I'll be able to attend and give some deserving individuals the opportunity to obtain one more point for their standings!!

That's awesome Bill, will be great to see you there. I know a few others who are coming and not yet signed up. I think that's part of their stealth strategy. Geez, F5J is such a strategic play.

Same crew except for Manny Tau. Back from the dead. Many of you may not have been around this long, but Manny was hard core back in the day TD, F3B, slope, slope racing, HL and a indoor blimp outside in a stiff breeze for about 2 minutes, he flew it all!!. Looking forward to catching up!!

Yes it will be great catching up. Hey how about a Saturday evening group dinner somewhere? Where is a good place that would seat our group? (without bars on the doors and windows, that is).
