UK F3K Eurotour & World Cup 2019


Recommended Posts


(Shameless copy & paste, with edits, from last year's thread)
Arrangements have got to be started sometime, so here we go.

Weekend of 11th & 12th May 2019
Location - Little Bentley, Colchester, Essex, CO7 8SN.

We had another great event last year - 2018 thread

I will create an event on the F3X Vault website - pre-payment is a requirement for registration.

A list of entrants will be kept here but actual entry is to be made on the F3X Vault site please.

UK entrants pay direct to me to avoid conversion fees from GBP-EURO-GBP

Entry fees are Senior £25 and Junior £10, pre-payment is required by PayPal to tony@quick-net.co.uk
Entries by midnight Thursday 9th May

Directions to the field in the attached pdf file. Camping on the field as last year as well as a barbecue on Saturday night. Rather than take a set amount for food, or adding it in to the entry fee, we will pay-as-you-eat. Bring your own beer, wine, etc.

Hi Gianmaria!

Of course we remember you, and would be delighted to see you at our F3K Eurotour event again.

I'm sure we can arrange a pick-up from Stansted on the Friday, I have a fishing bivi, bed chair, sleeping bag and cooking stove that you can use for camping (the bedchair is wonderful to sleep in, you will be the most comfortable person at the field :) )

I wonder if the confusion of Brexit has put off our Dutch and Belgian friends from registering yet, I really hope that when/if we know what the hell is going to happen over the next few months some will make the trip over to us.

To run a competition I believe we need a minimum of 10 pilots, I hope that there are other UK pilots ready to enter soon. Just 7 weeks to go!


Bivi - something like this

I'll be there too, thanks tony, I'll try and sort out the "paperwork"  at the weekend. No idea on the passport Gian, hope you can make it.

Gianmaria, no one knows what the requirements for travel will be from Italy. IF, and its a big if, Brexit is decided before May then more will be known. I fully expect that travel from EU countries will not be a problem for months or years to come whichever way Brexit goes.

So I made some enquiries with our Dutch friends and it appears very unfortunately, that the event this year seems to be clashing with one of their own National competitions 😔

Unfortunately, paperwork issues preclude me from getting an FAI license and taking part.

If you could refund my entry fee please.
