F5J in the Rockies 2018

I am please to open entries for F5J in the Rockies! This event will be held on the site of the first US F5J Team Selection event, so you will want to get some experience here before Team Selects..

The event will be held Sat/Sun June 23/24 in Denver at our club field. The field will be open for practice on Friday (actually any day is OK as long as you don't interfere with any farming operations).

Lunches will be supplied each day and is included in the entry fee.

Registration is open at

Read the rules and processes there for the details.

See you there... Jim

I’m in and signed up.

And if you need a Colorado warm-up before F5J in the Rockies warms you up for Team Selects here in the land of low launches and great lunches, come to our RMSA F3RES contest June 2-3; a whacky, fun, inexpensive good time with sticks and twigs models and strangely specific high starts! I already pulled the tails off my new F3RES model on a breezy launch but that’s not important right now....

I’m sorry I missed F5J in Vegas but it will be great seeing everyone here third weekend of June and again at the beginning of September.

These RMSA guys run a helluva contest!

If you are planning on coming please get registered. Lunches will be included in the event so I need to start planning for food.

I am thinking BBQ on Sat and Subs on Sunday!

Thereís a hotel near the field for 87.00 per night for normal people. 69.00 per night for aircrew. Lots of Southwest pilots based in Denver that donít live here use this place. Not fancy. Impersonate an airline pilot at your own peril. Use small words, grunt, use caveman gestures, etc.

I hear alot of guys are coming, but not registered yet. Its only 3 weeks away and we need to know numbers for food etc. Please get signed up if your planning on attending.
Conditions lately are typical Denver. Good lift in the morning, goes flat in the early afternoon, then they kick off again. Should be a great time......

It’s been pretty reasonable here with only a few days above 100 but that’s ending soon. In three weeks, we will be very happy to enjoy the moderate Denver weather.
