2020 Warm and Sunny F5J and F3J in Florida

Attention all soaring pilots - We're on for a 4 day Soaring Palooza!


F5J - Friday and Saturday, Feb 28th and 29th.
F3J - Sunday and Monday Mar 1st and 2nd.


F5J: $45
F3J: $85, $45 if it is your first F3J contest, and $25 for Juniors.

Registrations will open shortly at

Venue: Kennyworld Ocala FL

Okay everyone! We've talked among all the parties and have come up with a single 4 day weekend of soaring fun. For the 2020 episode of Warm and Sunny Soaring in FL the OWLS Club (One Wing Low Squadron) at Morriston near Ocala FL have graciously offered the late Kenny Goodwin's fabulous facility for our use!

We will have the field open for practice Thursday Feb 27th. The facility includes 2 RV spaces (1st come 1st served) and camping is encouraged. There is also a 3 bedroom house on the property and it has rooms available for rent. There are plenty of Hotel options also 25 minutes from the field along 95. Models can remain assembled overnight and stored in the huge Barn on the property. We hope that both events will be added to the F5J and F3J Tours and AMA sanctions will be obtained. The respective Tour rules will be adopted for both events. ( ALES CAMs will not be permitted. We will post updates once we have confirmed addition to the Tours by the tour organizers. F5J Tour has been applied for.

A dinner is planned for Saturday the 29th.

Sign-ups for both events will soon be on Please keep your eye on this thread, specifically this post as I will be sure to update it.

We really hope you can come down and enjoy one or both of these events while its still freezing in the North. We're going to have a bunch of fun and two great contests!

We will have someone doing a lunch run to the Pyper Kub Restaurant in Williston and bring to the field during each day of the competition. Lunch will be $8 per day and cold sodas, water and chips will be available for a donation.

Directions to the famous Kennyworld field just west of Ocala FL (17150 SE 60th street, Morriston fl 32668) (GPS: 29.2431, -82.4860)

Sounds like another great dual event, Ricky's master. Please submit an F5J USA Tour event application so we can verify dates against our master calendar (which includes carry-forward dates from 2019 hosting clubs). We promise to turn your application around quickly! Thanks, Chris

Ricky is Gordon's dog. He's the only dog I've ever heard whose bark actually sounds like "arf".

Registered User is in the middle of changing hosting providers. Sorry to say it is not going well. The routing is currently down, I will let everyone know when it is back up.

If you are really hot to register you can go to Eventually the domain name will resolve correctly... (I hope)

F3Xevents is not quite working.

Please use the address until I get it straightened out.

I am experimenting with various routing settings so may come and go until I find the right way to route it.
Thanks - Jim
