Fab Feb World Cup Sign Ups and more
Firstly the grapevine tells us that there are a number of US sportsmen who have not entered yet, one or two of them did not enter in advance last year.  They professed a lack of ability in embracing modern technology but do seem to be quite capable of handling email and even the dreaded FaceBook.  For these people we may have a PC available for them so they can enter online at the sign up on Frida at the Lost Hills community center.  Running an event of this size ( about 170 entrants so far) and keeping the cost down is only possible with the use of modern technology and cooperation of participants.

Now to the more interesting stuff.  We are getting requests on who has entered.  I would be curious to know which “who” on the list makes you want to enter!  The list below is a “combined” list of the 3 events, while the MaxMen has one or two more people most are in all 3 events.  Looking at the F1A list it goes from Abad to Zak, what more can you want ! And F1B is right there too with Ackerly to Zencheng.. What about Babenko to Summersby too, just need a few more letters.

This year we are making a special effort the check FAI ID and find them for people who don’t know they have them to try and ensure we all get full credit for our actions on the field …. In spite of the IT antics of the FAI and associated NACs ( guess as a retired CIO, I can make such observations)

Now for real …..

all wheel drive chase bike
From:David Ackery

Readers maybe interested in an alternative to the standard chase bike,
Designed in New Zealand, available in Australia and the USA.


David Ackery

Editor’s Comment – Dave I think I want one of these for next time I fly at Proctor Rd, I would need an extra leg shield for protection against those thistles.

Pseudo F1N and more
We have noticed an increasing number of F1N and F1N [outdoor] events on the European Calendar.  While in the USA true F1N is reserved only for a few special events HLG and CLG (hand and catapult launched glider) events are very popular and have a long history. USA is one of the few places where an outdoor max is 2 minutes.  The F1N World Record holder, Stan Buddenbohm is from Southern California as is the Leeper (Lee Hines), the latter, designer of the classic Sweepette and long time Glider Guru. The Ike Winter Classic that is run in with the Kiwi Cup has 2 such contests for each of HLG/CLG, the McCready ones with a $ prize plus the $100 for a  5X5 HLG  that’s 5X 5 minute rounds with 20 minutes retrieval time– spread over the 2 days.  These are flown from a Glider Pen near the AMA flight line.  Your chance to beat the top dogs ….. if you can. Check the Ike flyer on the SEN web site .

And speaking of the Leeper he has donated $ for an Electric Champ of that weekend Ike and Kiwi combined – see that flyer too
