Our 5th sponsor we would like to thank is Mannie at Graupner USA.
Mannie and Graupner USA have supported the F3B USA team and other USA teams for a number of years and we all very much appreciated they support.
Tom Kesling is a Graupner USA team pilot and have been flying there MZ24 and MZ32 for the past 4 years.
At this F3B World Championships Tom Kiesling and Thomas Cooke will be using the MZ32.

They have kindly this year donated a MZ24 Pro Radio worth $499.99

We would also like to thank everyone that has so far supported the team with their donation (purchase of tickets).
We still have a long way to go with the fundraising and would appreciate if you are able to share our fundraising page with your friends http://www.teamusaf3b.com/2019-fund-raising-prizes

It is thursday morning here. All the equipment made it here and we picked up our line yesterday too.

This morning we head for the field. Batteries should be there. Then a nice day of flying.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed and keep those contributions coming.

Thanks to everyone buying tickets. It is encouraging to see all the great support for the team.

We were able to adjust our winches to the local batteries. Definitely a change from my goor batteries at home. Fortunately it did not cut into flying time since we had to wait in the morning for full size sailplane launches.

In the afternoon we shared the field with model winches on one edge and full size winch on the other side.

Others rolled in through the day. It was good to see folks we have seen since two years ago.

Glad you guys made it safely, have all equipment and are ready to rock!

Jesenik is a nice flying field, but can afford for some tricky conditions. That will suit you guys well, as all of the team are good soaring pilots!

Good luck in the pre-worlds contest and have fun!

We had a good afternoon of measured speed practice. It is more than just the pilot. We have the whole team working together, launcher, pedal, turnaround. Communications is important to safely operate lines and keep them in perfect condition.

And all our growing list of supporters is helping too.
