F5J Tour Event at Brigantino July 15-16


The South Bay Soaring Society (SBSS) is pleased to announce a F5J competition to be held July 15 and 16th, 2017. The contest will be held at Brigantino Park in Hollister, CA.  Brigantino Park is a large, irrigated and mowed grass field. 

Average high temperature in July is 81 degrees, but mornings and evenings are typically much cooler due to the nearby coast. Driving time to or from Monterey or Santa Cruz is approximately 45 minutes, making this contest a logical basis for a family vacation. 

Contest Directors are Don McCullough, and Chris Bajorek. Contest Coordinator is Dave Murphy, dmurphy380@sbcglobal.net.
This is a F5J-USA Tour event, and will be conducted in accordance with Tour rules. Pertinent information can be found at www.f5j-usa.com/ including rules, explanations and a link to the current FAI rules. Each model flown must be equipped with an approved F5J logging altimeter. Motor restarts will be allowed, but will result in a 0 flight and landing score.
A list of currently approved altimeters is shown below:
Altis v3
Altis v4+
Altis v4
Altis Micro
Grk Elec Altmr2
RCE #2Basic
RCE Multi 2
SM Unilog 2

Contest fees for this two day event will be $50.00. Registration is open now, and is via email to dmurphy380@sbcglobal.net. Entrants may pay contest fees via Pay Pal prior to the event, or in cash at the field, exact change please. The top five scorers will receive awards.

The park will be available for practice on Friday the 14th. There is no overnight camping allowed at the park, and users must provide their own drinking water. Shade is scarce, so consider bringing sun protection or shelter.
