USA Team Selection Bulletin #2

Can be down loaded from the NFFS web site at :

Note that there is a typo in the Bulletin that states the supplied F1C fuel is Methanol and Castor when it will be Methanol and Synthetic Oil.

Lost Hills October Parking

For those who were at the FF Champs, there was some parking and camping  at a location different from where we normally park and camp.

For the October events, California FAI Invitational, US Team Selection Finals and the Sierra Cup we will park and camp at the "usual" place..  Note that this does not necessarily mean we will fly from the usual flight line. the flight lines will be set up by those running the events depending on the weather conditions on the day, so it may be necessary to go to t he designated location.

Help Me Ronda

Are there any "smarty pants" code hackers out there that might be able to re program a Foremost electronic F1 B timer.  I have one that has been put into a locked up, won't work mode so the only thing that happens is you turn on the timer and  after about 5 minutes the LED shows both a red and green light but that is it.  I am also looking for someone that might be able to reprogram it to accept an Airtek or Areis RDT receiver.  Thank you!
