Southern Winter League F3f 2018/19.

Southern Winter League dates 2018/19.

Here then are the dates for the Southern Winter lg. You  will see that I have moved the dates from being the traditional 2nd Sunday of the month to the 4th. My reason for doing this is so as to avoid any both  Sat & Sund wknd competition clashes with any other region. 

For the past few years both the Southern & Midland comps have been staged over the same wknd, ie 2nd wknd of the month, the Midland being on the Sat, Southern on the Sund. This clash has prevented a number of pilots wishing to compete in both leagues (or just enter1 or 2 of the other regions comps ) from doing so, myself being one of these pilots.  

With the Midland comps having been struggling for entry numbers these past few years, my hope is that by separating the wknd of these two comps pilots will no longer have to make a choice as to which comp they compete in, the Midland lg will consequently gain more entries. 

 

Venues for the Southern winter league are  Whitesheet, Eastbourne, Butser hill.  each comp venue dependant upon the forecast wind direction.

The 'venue' announcement for each comp will be posted at the earliest opportunity prior to each comp following study of the various wind direction forecasts.

The 'Weather call' will be posted by 9.00pm on the Friday evening prior to each comp. 

 

Comp dates;-

Sund Oct  28th

Sund Nov 25th

Sund Dec 23rd

Sund Jan  27th

Sund Feb  24th

 

Reserve dates;- 

1st  reserve Sund Dec 9th

2nd reserve Sund March  10th

'Actual Venue Advisory & confirmation' ;-  During the course of next week I will be closely following the various forecasts. I will post a 'venue advisory' on Weds 24th at around 9.00pm.

I will post the  'venue confirmation' as soon after this as the various forecasts allow, hopefully I will be able to do so a 'day or two' before the weather call.

The 'Weather call' will be posted at around 8.00pm on the Friday 26th.

 

The Winter league comps are the perfect introduction to this exciting branch of our sport, newcomers are guaranteed are very warm welcome. Hints & tips on all things F3f ie,  model set up, flying the course, turn styles,  ballast decisions, etc etc are always freely given.

Most sports models are perfectly suitable to use, you don't need an expensive F3f machine. 

It is through the winter league comps that very many F3f pilots like myself started.  I look forward to welcoming you to your first comp.
