Dear fellow HK F3F soarers,

Viking Race 2006 will be held in Scotland from 8 to 15 September, 2006.

Hong Kong will send at least one team to participate in the race. If the organizer allows, we may be able to send more teams but it is very unlikely. So we need to start the selection process for forming the best team to represent HK - that comes the VR2006 qualifying races.

I think we need to organize at least two qualifying races as soon as possible. The total scores of the race will be used in the ranking list to select the pilots in the team. I have the following dates in mind:

Race 1: 18 December 2005 (Sunday)
Race 2: 8 January 2006 (Sunday)

Do you have other suggestions, or should we check with 通勝 to ask the weather God for providing us with big wind?

Hi Stanley,

Is the qualification race openned to the public (like the previous F3F races held by HKRCSS) or just for those who has the intention to go to VR?

It should be openned to all local pilots. We would generate a ranking list after the races.
Those who have the highest ranks in the list have the right to go to VR2006, but of course if he chose not to go, the one next in the list will have the right and so on...

Choose two from below then:

18 December 2005 (Sunday)
8 January 2006 (Sunday)
15 January 2006 (Sunday)
22 January 2006 (Sunday)
12 February 2006 (Sunday)
19 February 2006 (Sunday)

We should set the dates for the two races at least two weeks apart for people to take rest and maintain their planes after the first race.

Cheers

I'll expect new HK record be established. As these guys (I mean those, but not limited to, who are compulsory to be on duty during the WTO period) can take so many days 'comp. leave' after the WTO to practice day-after-days before the race days.

I agree with Ah So. We can fix certain weekends. If weather forecast is OK, we can run the contest. Otherwise, we can defer to next time slot.

Moreover, we can even run a winter league.

不如就這樣安排:

首先預定第一場比賽在 12月18日 舉行
第二場比賽在 1月8日 舉行

如果因風力或風向不對勁,所有比賽跟以下時間表順廷下去。
18 December 2005 (Sunday)
8 January 2006 (Sunday)
15 January 2006 (Sunday)
22 January 2006 (Sunday)
12 February 2006 (Sunday)
19 February 2006 (Sunday)

例如第一場比賽在12月8日不能舉行,那麼第一場比賽就會在1月8日舉行,而第二場比賽就會在1月15日舉行。

由於參加在蘇格蘭舉行的維京賽所費不非,為了鼓勵有志之仕但經濟較為緊絀的機友出賽,我個人有些意見供大家參考:

1. 在每次維京選拔賽向各參賽者收取 $200 的參賽費,如果有 15 位機友參賽,共舉行兩場選拔賽,我們可籌得 $6,000。這畢款項可平均分配給三位出線賽員或個別有需要的賽員。為了吸引更多機友參加選拔賽而不計較 $200 的參賽費,本會可向各大廠商慕捐豐富獎品,使比賽物有所值。

2. 本會可組織舊機捐獻義賣活動,來籌款。


各位機友對此安排有何意見,或有其他更皆的提議?

It is more appropriate to make use of this money for hiring buzzermen in order to provide a smooth and fair competition.

有否考慮請國泰贊助機票?到倫敦或曼徹斯特(更近)後,再轉巴士去蘇格蘭。

Ah KIN,

Seems that you are very confident to win the qualifying contest.

How much?
It depends on your expectation. Apart from the air ticket, hiring a small car would cost 50 pounds a day (this could be shared by the team). B&B (bed and breakfast) would cost 25 pounds a day. 10 pounds on food per day, and 10 pounds for beers each night. Expenses on girl? Who knows!!

The prices were based on my last visit in Y2K, I think MAK, CM and Angus could have more recent information.

Cheers,
