Golf Cart Rental for World Champs/World Cups
Note from Mike McKeever (on the World Champs organizing committee)
I'm a little surprised that we have not had more teams requesting a golf cart. The easily haul equipment for those times a line change is required and are useful chase vehicles when a motorcycle is not available. Unfortunately, you can't wait to the last minute as our supplier needs to know how many carts will be required by October first. If you are interested, please contact Mike McKeever at vamckeever @aol.com to make your reservations prior to October 1st.
Editors comment – You cannot use your car for retrieval. The are places off the roads where regular road vehicles cannot be driven. Golf carts provide the rest and safest retrieval options. Remember temp could exceed 35C. For a person who is does not have off road bike experience a golf card is th best answer
The original notice
Golf cart rentals from All Cart in Bakersfield will be available for rental at the field prior to the Sierra Cup beginning October 10 including the World Championships and finally Kotuku Cup ending on October 24.
We have been given an opportunity to rent these carts at a substantial cost reduction as long as we meet a minimal number of cart rentals.
The carts will be rented on a reserve basis with payment due on delivery on a date before the events.
The carts are available for $50/day. There are 2 person carts, 4 person carts and a cart with a cargo box on the back. These carts would be a great way to move people and equipment around the field as well as for a potential chase vehicle, subject to field rules involving the orchards.
We need to know how many carts should be reserved. We would like to have teams or individuals advise as soon as possible who wants a cart(s) and for which days. There are a limited number of carts available and reservations will be taken on a first come, first served basis up to the limit of carts available. We are advised roughly 20 carts will be available.
Sierra Cup Reminder
Just a reminder that the Sierra Cup World Cup event before the World Champs will start with F!E on Friday October 11. F1A and F1Q will be flown October 12. F1B F1C and F1P will be flown Sunday October 13. All mini events will be flown in conjunction with Kotuku Cup on October 14.
You can pre-enter at https://forms.gle/yJyDtgpnKmtLCUqy9 and entries will be accepted on the field prior to your event (no entries accepted on the day of your event). For those of you who want to pay before that can send a check payable to SCAT to:
Mike McKeever 981 Fairway Drive Gardnerville, NV 89460
Flyers outside the United States can pay at the field or through the AMA (the W/C website). Look for my Big Horn trailer in the RV area.
Large events F1E / F1A / F1Q / F1B / F1C are $35 Small events F1G / F1H / F1J / F1P/ F1S are $15
You are encouraged to advise me by email that you are flying in Sierra Cup prior to your arrival.
We will fly from lines as opposed to poles. Timers are not supplied and you are encouraged to fly with a partner from your line position. Turn in your scorecard after each round.
You will be given a packet of information and your scorecard when you make payment or if you have already paid, signed a required safety sheet, so check-in is required for all competitors.
Feel free to ask any questions you may have when you check in. I look forward to seeing everyone and it should be a fantastic contest just prior to the World Champs.
On my radar
Lost Hills Weather?A great phone app is "myradar.com" In Colorado we are fortunate enough to have a station near our field but it isn't necessary as "myradar" has area temp, cloud cover and wind indication in its menus. You can "pin" your location on the map too.
