Our 2010 event is again a two day meet
We traditionally hold two separate one-day contests, with an overall grand champion.
This year however we will be holding a traditional F3K meet spread over Saturday and Sunday  This allows our meet to be a F3K Team Selection qualification meet and hopefully draw more contestants.
In keeping with our tradition, we have decided to recognize those that do well even if they can make it on one day.  
So if you can make it only one day, please do so! 

Pilots meeting 8:30 AM both days
First round begins 9:00 AM both days

Tasks and round schedules are at this point still TBD

Entry Fees:
$25 per contestant, includes lunch both days
$20 for single day entry, includes lunch that day

Awards first through third place for the traditional F3K meet.
Additional awards as needed to recognize those who do well and can make it for only one of the two days.
Special awards  to all contestants and any volunteers who help with running the contest!

Lunch will be served approximately 11:30-12:30 both days.
We will break for lunch at an appropriate time after the completion of a round
Lunch will be available for others for a donation, bring your family and friends. All are welcome!

General Notes:
This is a very good place to fly, with good parking, a pavilion and rest rooms available!
