Unfortunately due to the Covid-19 pandemic the Red Rooster F5J contest on May 30 - June 1 at our field in Rhode Island is cancelled.
As of now Rhode Island is still in full lock down and by the end of May we might be in the beginning of Phase I of opening the state.
Phase I does not allow social gatherings with more than 10 people and will still have severe social distancing restrictions.
Restaurants will likely not be open yet.
Our club decided this is not the right time to have a contest at our field

Hopefully if we see you all in August at our TD contest.

Stay safe and healthy.
Greetings Maarten
