2017 Edition : Lemoncello Cup (14-16 July)

After the great results of the previous year’s events, and the 4 editions in the slopes of Caussols, home of the Modele Air Club de Cannes, we have decided for this new edition to host the event once again at our slope in Tende (French-Italian border). This big slope has a permanent wind blowing from either north or south (two deep valleys concentrate the wind both ways). This slope has been for the past years used for the National Team selection for the past European and World Championship. The slope has proven it’s efficiency and consistency, with great lift with limited wind (very rare) and up to 20+ M/S winds with full ballasts.

This year, registration will start February 28th in the evening, to help competitors organize their season and travels more efficiently. So stay tuned!!!!!The registration will close on June 1st (payment received), so be sure to register quickly to be sure to participate!
We will use the F3XVault system for registration, so be sure to have your account ready by the time we open registrations. This system does not support automatic event opening, so this will be done manually on February 28th and a news will be posted on this website as well as Facebook. Stay tuned!
We will also use Paypal to make it easier to pay and validate your registration.

General Information:

The competition will be held at the “Col de Tende”, at the top of the “Limone” ski resort, during the weekend of the 14-16th July 2017.
Two very deep valleys (north and south) feed constantly the slopes only a few hundred meters away from each other depending on wind direction.

Planning:
Registration of pilots on the slope and frequency verification will start on Friday 14th at 9:00 am and will end 10:00 am. No flights on the slope on Friday morning from 10 o’clock onwards. In order to achieve a maximum number of rounds, flights will start on Saturday and Sunday morning around 10:00 am and flying will end when daylight becomes insufficient.

On Sunday, it is intended to start no round after 3:30 pm.

Number of Pilots:
The number of pilots is limited to 35.
