Hey guys,

We have organized our May SCSA F3K League contest as a larger 'SCSA F3K Spring Open' contest. Results will also be counted towards our total league scores.

Trophies and prizes for top 3, and souvenirs for top 7 pilots.

We organized this event in Nan Sha to help make it more convenient for Hong Kong pilots. The venue is only ~100 meters from the Nansha ferry pier, which has ferry service right to/from Hong Kong! http://fyt.hkust.edu.cn/cn/Ferry-Schedule.html

We originally hoped to make this an official SCSA/HKRCSS joint event, but our organization was a little too late, that's ok! Maybe we can make one next quarter :)

You can take the 8:00 am ferry from HK, and arrive at Nan Sha at 9:15. It is a 5-10 minute walk from the pier to our venue. Further details below where I copy and pasted my thread in the SCSA Forum (http://www.tsmx.cn/bbs/forum.php?mod=vi ... a=page%3D1):

FAI國際標準規矩。
報到和比賽準時開始,絕不等人和選手,遲到了就要等下本輪結束,跟裁判報到,才能夠開始飛下一輪。

比賽飛行8輪比賽,在第4和第5輪之間有30分鐘午飯時間。

這個場地的最大特點,就是離開通往南沙/香港的南沙客運港不到100米,很方便香港的選手參與!

從香港多來的選手,請坐 8:00 從香港出發的船,9:15 到南沙客運港。走的時候可以坐 16:15 離開南沙客運港的船, 17:30 回到香港。

當然,其他省份的朋友都非常歡迎過來一起交流!

Hi guys, that is the ferry schedule. You can take the 8am ferry from HK, and arrive at Nansha at 9:20. The field is only 5 minutes walk away from the ferry terminal (you can see it on the website header). Meeting is 10:00am, so you have 30-40 minutes to setup and put your planes together, and first round is at 10:30.

If anyone is interested please come over!!! This is a great opportunity for HK pilots to fly with SCSA, as the transportation is very very convenient compared to our regular San Shui field.

Here's the current roster of the pilots that have signed up. We are expecting another 4 from Dongguan (1 adult and 3 juniors) later today, and hopefully a few more guys from HK :)
Right now we have pilots from Hong Kong, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Foshan, and Dongguan participating in this contest.

Hi, thinking about going....

But I know you guys will drive there.
Any HK guys want to go and take the boat trip?
If no other HK pilots go by boat with me, I will be on my own........ :oops: :twisted:

Donny? Mak? Angus? Fai? Albert? Please don't let Stanley be alone on the boat, haha!
Even if you don't have a plane ready yet do come over and check out the contest, it will really give you an idea of how an F3K contest is run and flown :)

Thomas

Stanley, I'll help you register first~~

BTW Stanley, do you want me to help you register in a team with one of the 'expert' class pilots? Both Robust and Heaton don't have teams yet and are looking for a 'sportsman' class pilot (for May each team can only have 1 expert max).

Certainly I am not in the Expert Class. Is there a Begineer Class?
Anyway, I would be happy to join any one of your groups if they don't mind having an old guy in their groups.
Cheers!

Haha! We have 2 classes - Expert and Sportsman, everyone is in sportsman until they have reached top 5 in one of the SCSA contests or a large contest around the world. I'll get you in a team :)

Hi Stanley and Thomas,
Allan and I are considering go by ferry from ChinaHK pier as we can park the car there ($150 for 24 hours). We manage to take the 8:00am ferry

By the way, please be reminded Sunday will be the last day of the golden week and traffic will be busy at all ports.

It was a wonderful DLG contest in Nansha today. I am just so tired after a day of intensive contest and hours of travel, but I had a lot of good memory to bring back. I have met many enthusiastic DLG pilots and some old friends there and learned a lot from them. I do encourage you guys from HK to join in future contests. Cheers!

We traveled there by boat to Nansha port

The flying field is just 100m away from the Nansha ferry terminal

Alex Tang joined our DLG contest in Shamchung few years ago. He got the 1st runner up today, well done!

Pang Ho has joined our DLG contests in Lamma Is. and Shamchung a few times back in 2005. He is the champion today, well done!
