Dear fellow F3F pilots,

We had a friendly discussion with the Korean, Taiwanese and Australian pilots about forming a Pan Asian F3F tour last time we met during HK Open. The idea is to hold an international F3F race each year in country around this region - Asia Pacific. It was decided that the first contest will be hosted by Taiwan and it will be in Penghu Island around late October or early November next year. Then, most likely it will be Korea in 2009, Australia in 2010 and Hong Kong in 2011. Of course if there are other countries interested in hosting the contest, it will be decided later by a selection committee formed with representatives from each county.

Currently, we need to define the name of the Pan Asian F3F tour, design a contest logo and draft a charter with goal, guidelines and characteristics of the said tour. We will also set up a web site for it later. We now in the process of consultation for the name of this F3F tour. So far, suggested names include:

Typhoon F3F,
Typhoon F3F Race,
Typhoon F3F Club,
Typhoon Club

Any other suggestion? I think easy to remember and to reflect the nature of Pan Asian F3F will be the criteria. Please give your suggestions and comments.

Stanley

For the meaning, "Typhoon" is not bad, but I always think it is not "sound good" . . . Compare to, say, "Viking". "Viking" sounds loud and clear, active and cheerful. While "Typhoon" is a little bit "dull and flat" . . :roll:

In Asia, not all countries has Typhoon. Singapore is an example.

I like the term "Pacific" too. It may cover US in future.

Initially, my favour is Typhoon F3F but it is difficult to pronounce which requires twisting our tongue.

Unlike Viking Race, the use of Race to match with Typhoon is a bit peculiar to me.

Viking is the name of middle age people living in North Europe, so the use of Race (such as human race) is appropriate.
Of course, the meaning of race here in Viking Race for F3F is a run for contest and Viking is just a symbolic name, so both cases are perfectly match and it sounds good also with strong vowels.

But for the name Typhoon Race, typhoon is a weather phenomenon and can not be described as (human) race, if Typhoon is a symbolic name and race is as a run for contest, it may be ok, but it is not perfect.

I don't like the name Typhoon Club as it sounds like World Cup without the characteristics of racing (with time) in our F3F sport.

How about other names such as:

Apac Race
Cathay Race

(Cathay is the name derived from Khitan 契丹, an ancient people living in northeastern China who found the kingdom of Lao 遼)
?

I also think about using the name of a bird which migrates from Korea to Taiwan, then Hong Kong back and fore in the winter and summer. Its name is Back Face Platalea (黑面琵鷺)

Platalea Race ? but it seems difficult to pronounce and remember!

Search continue….…

Stanley, Viking Race 入面既 “Race" 係咪真係有”種族“既隱喻架﹖如果要多人識又要 associate 到 F3F 狂野極速既特質﹐中國歷史入面我就只係諗到成吉思汗啦﹐講威水同霸氣﹐蒙古人好似勁過維京人渦﹗講開又講﹐蒙古馬好似係好高質既馬種黎架﹐騎住蒙古馬馳聘草原大漠果種感覺先至係 F3F feel 丫嘛 ﹗

D西片入面成吉思汗係咪好似叫 "kan" 或 ”khan " 架 ﹖不如諗下叫 Khan Race 啦 :lol:

Cathay Race 就真係麻麻啦﹐除非國泰贊助啦

至於 Typhoon Race.... D颱風轉轉下﹐好似出彎入 spin 咁﹐會唔會唔多吉利 :roll:

以下是有關於 F3F Viking Race 的一個傳說:

在 F3F 飛行比賽之前,喜歡速度竟賽的 pilot,都是以 MOM 的方式進行比賽。
不久,大家感到 MOM 飛行方式所須之線審太多。經常找不到足夠的人員維持比賽。
更壞的是 MOM 比賽中,因有太多飛機同時在賽道上。
當賽員努力獲取最高升力區的飛行跑道時,經常會發生飛機於空中相撞的情況。
為了減少意外的發生,所以建立了每次只容許一架飛機進行比賽的 F3F 比賽方式。
這就誕生了今天的 F3F 比賽。

挪威 (Norway)是一個風力很好的海邊小國。
古時當地的維京人不時以挪威為根据地,以帆船出海。向英國沿海地區的商船及海岸居民掠奪。
所以這些乘風而來的維京人(Vikings),在北歐是無人不識、無人不怕的。
:!: Vikings 只會在有風的日子出現,因為他們乘的都是帆船 :!:

第一次大型的F3F比賽就是在挪威開始。
最初這個 F3F ,也只是幾個歐洲國家之間進行比賽,所以就用了 Viking 這個大家都識的名字。
後來不斷有其他國家的運動員参加這個最大型的 F3F 賽事,F3F Viking 比賽才成為現在的世界性賽事。



BTW: 我們亞洲的比賽,我建議用簡單、外國人都容易明白的名稱 :

亞洲 F3F 國際公開賽 : 香港站、台灣站、澳洲站、韓國站

Asian F3F International Open Competition :

亞洲經際不斷高速發展的今天,澳洲經常性地自視為亞太地區的一員。

互聯網地區的 .AP域也巳把澳洲列入 Asia Pacific 之內 :
AP = Asia/Australia/Pacific

有關網址: http://www.icann.org/montreal/geo-regions-topic.htm

大概澳洲人也不介意吧?




重有,以後都係叫"各地區"好啦,唔可以用"國家"呢個 terms。

一來香港唔係國家,台灣易係一個問題。
日後中國內地加入F3F比賽就更加唔講得笑 :?

Please don't discuss out of topic matter here!

I personally like the name of Typhoon, but it just a bit peculiar to me if it is associated with the word Race.
Typhoon is something related to wind and is definitely appropriate for our F3F sport. Although in different regions of the world, other names such as Cyclone, Storm, and Hurricane are used, it is quite appropriate because the name Typhoon is specifically used in East Asia.

So,
Typhoon Race - a bit peculiar because the word Race has other meaning too
Typhoon F3F - difficult to pronounce
Typhoon Club - doesn’t sound good

How about these?
Typhoon Run
Typhoon Soar
Typhoon Quest


The name for Asian International F3F Race is too long to pronounce and remember. It is better to have a short form, easy to pronounce and remember.

Are there other words associated with wind, glider, soaring and with Asian-Pacific regional meanings?

Asian Soar
East Wind Race
Asian Wind
Wind God Race風神賽

For joking only! How about the name Kamikaze Race (神風賽)?
Japanese may like it but not for people from other Asian countries. Glider pilots certainly don’t like it as it is associated with Kamikaze Squad that hits their targets by commit suicide dive.

Seriously, I will not join if it is called "神風賽" or any other related to what the jap had done in the war.

Stanley,
In a Typhoon, wind speed will get over 26m/s, which is outside the speed limit of F3F race, and that mean NO flying.
That's exactly what happened in the last round of Welsh Open 2007 :(

Agree to going with simply, easy-to-understand and neutral names like what Mak suggested :o

Perhaps like:

Asia F3F Open : 台灣站、澳洲站、韓國站 ...

Pacific F3F Open : 台灣站、澳洲站、韓國站 ...

In that case, it should be named as:
Pacific Open 2008 - Taiwan
Pacific Open 2009 - Korea
Pacific Open 2010 - Australia
Pacific Open 2011 - Hong Kong.

Or we just say:
F3F Pacific Open 2008
F3F Pacific Open 2009
....
Simple and Clear.
