  The full 2017 America's Cup Results were published several SENs ago. Here is a summary of the top five and top juniors. Congratulation for another competitive year of FAI FF flying.  The top 5  and top juniors get certificates. The first place winners receive an unique trophy and get to keep their America's Cup event perpetual trophy for a year. There are only two repeat winners for the 2017 season, Tiffaney O'Dell in F1G and Faust  Parker in F1J.


These awards will be given out at the America's Cup Banquet, FRIDAY, (CHANGE from previous years!) February 16, 2018 at the Lost Hills Wonderful Park North Recreation building starting at 6:30 pm. Sign up and payment for the banquet is via the on line registration, <> and pay at registration on Friday February 9, 2018 at the South Recreation building. If you are not entering any of the contests, contact me via email <This email address is being protected from spambots.

This year you will be served banquet style by the SCAT volunteers.

Max Men Pole Assignment

From : Bill Booth CD


The Bob White Max Men International will be flown on poles with 4 flyers per pole.  If you have a preference for pole partners, please send me an e-mail  at  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


Without input, I will organize poles by country or if more than 4 modelers I will put countrymen on adjacent poles.  Final pole assignments, starting poles and number of poles to move will all be posted no later than 6:30 the morning of the event.  I will not re-arrange poles the morning of the event, so speak up.  Late entries will be placed where there are openings.


Thanks,  Bill Booth 



Editors Comment . Other two Fab Feb World Cup (Kiwi and North American) events are flown from a Flight line with no assigned poles.
