Okay everyone! 2020 has been a long year but we are having fun in 2021 in Florida. We have been granted permission to have a 4 day weekend of soaring fun by the OWLS Club (One Wing Low Squadron) at Morriston near Ocala FL to use the KennyWorld location same as 2020.
We will have the field open for practice Thursday Jan 28th.
The facility includes 2 RV spaces (1st come 1st served) and camping is usually encouraged but since the property has been sold we are not sure on details regarding camping until the next week or so.
There are plenty of Hotel options just 20 to 25 minutes from the field along 95.
We hope that both events will be added to the F5J and F3J Tours and AMA sanctions have been applied for. The respective Tour rules will be adopted for both events. (http://www.f5j-usa.com/event-rules-and-processes/). We will post updates once we have confirmed addition to the Tours by the tour organizers.
A dinner is planned at one of the excellent local restaurants for Saturday the 29th.
Sign-ups for both events will be available in a day or two http://f3xevents.com. 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.
