    On June 22, 23 the Rhode Island Soaring Club is hosting the USA F3B team practice at our beautiful sod farm fields in Richmond RI .

    The complete USA F3B team going to the 2019 world championships will be there.

    This will be a super exciting event with mostly distance and speed tasks.

    Michael Lachowski, Tom Kiesling, and Thomas Cooke need some serious practice and competition before we are sending them off to the world championships in August.

    We need helpers running the timers at the bases and we need F3B pilots to join us to give the US team some competition.

    This is also a great opportunity to see F3B flying up close. So if you have never seen F3B flying come help us out.

      Hi Mike.
      I live about an hour and a half from there. I'm happy to come out an help. I'll be back from the Indiana event and have that weekend free as of now.
      Any Idea what time this is going to happen? And which field?

        Thanks Len,

        I am not 100% sure which field we will use. Either the normal contest field which is Covell or we could go over to Heaton Orchard Rd which is nice and flat and open plus we usually can get the cars closer to the winch locations. We will know when we get closer to the weekend.

        We will be flying all day Saturday and much of Sunday. There is a bit of setup for all the winches and sighting devices. I hope we are in the air by 9:30.
