LSF XC and F3H at the 2019 NATS

Ok Folks its time to start planning for the 2019 NATS F3H/XC part of your life!!!!

Cruise Director: Wally 'By Golly" Adasczik

Cost: FREE!!!!!!
Dates: Practice on 7/31. Event on 8/1 and 8/2

Time: Arrive for 8AM. Weather dependent--Getting on course around 10AM each day...usually...most days later.
Where: Monroe Central Jr/Sr High School, Parker City, Indiana
Support Vehicles: Wallys Country Cadillac...we could use a few more vehicles. Convertible Land Barges mucho appreciated!!
Support Equipment: Bean bags for the back of the vehicles
Google Me:!8i6656

Priority 1: F3H Cross Country Racing - WINCH and ELECTRIC

Reference : yep need to fix this one
GLOBAL WORDING CHANGE: Substitute reference for "Team" with "pilot".

5.H.1 Rules for Entry (Modified): This is a single pilot event - NOT a team event. Dependent upon chase vehicles pilots will have to take turns
5.H.2 Description Of Task (Modified) : Object is to fly the course non-stop with one model. Fastest Time wins driving the speed limit of course. Only the pilot that started on course may fly the model.
5.H.3 Description of Course: Point A to Point B and return to point A. (Goal and Return - 10.2 kms)!3m1!1e3 Start at Monroe Central and head North or South on either course
5.H.4 Launching: As described. Electric - 150M limiter using CAM/ALTIS/Other
5.H.5 Flight Rules: As described.
5.H.6 Scoring: As described.

Priority 2: LSF XC

Help folks get their Level 3 (1KM), Level 4 (2KM) and Level 5 (10KM) LSF XC completed in either Conventional or Electric Gliders. No contest here folks...just relaxing flying!!! This will get you ready for ALES and F3K on the weekend!

Winches/Hi-Start will be available for conventional platforms. You have the option of flying either the North or South courses. When you click on the link above you can drive either course. When you come out of the parking lot head right (south) or left (north). Drive the road in Google view!!!

Update: The Awesome Folks at Google only allow you view to the crossroads to 100St on the south course and to 500St on the north course. Watch out for that farm tractor heading south! Anyway the view gives potential pilots an idea on the openness of the course in either direction.

Questions - Leave them here or send a PM!!!

Hope to see y'all on the course!!!!

Wally by Golly

John Marien also posted a 3.5 km flight. Well deserved applause for John for laying down some serious mileage.
