CANCELED: FSS #6, ALES at Fort Christmas, Florida, Saturday, April 4, 2020


As of Tuesday evening, March 17, the Orlando Buzzards club officers have unanimously agreed to cancel the FSS #6 ALES contest at the Fort Christmas field, originally scheduled for April 4, 2020, due to the coronavirus risk. And in spite of all the work I've put into getting ready, I fully agree with their decision.

As of April 4, 2020, this thread is closed. I recommend that any further discussion be taken to the Florida Soaring Society Events - General Discussion thread.

As I wrote in my amended opening post, the Orlando Buzzards club officers unanimously agreed to cancel FSS #6. You might want to get their authorization before planning another event at their field.

Please read post carefully. "if the field is available."
And of course I will check with our club officers about using our field.....

Edit:
Raed says the field is open, and there are no restrictions from the County, so the original question remains.

Perhaps you should move the discussion regarding the triathlon to here:
http://https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?2798484-Florida-Soaring-Society-Events-General-Discussion
This is intended to be a “fun fly” not an ama sanctioned event.
As of yet, the county hasn’t put any restrictions on us about using the field, club members are actively flying there. We recommended cancelling FSS 6 so folks won’t have to travel to get to it. Also it is recommended not to congregate in groups of more than 10 people.
