2020 Edition – Lemoncello Cup (17-19 July)
11th edition of our Lemoncello Cup. two ‘1’ like the bases, 2020 like the pleasure score I hope you will have during this weekend…
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 1st at 8.00 AM, to help competitors organize their season and travels more efficiently. So stay tuned!!!!!
Also, I have had issues with people not doing their paypal payment for weeks (months) and therefore preventing other pilots from registering (list full). We will wipe all non paid registration on March 1st to give another chance for the pilots to register if they couldn’t make it on the first chance (and this will hopefully make pilots realize they need to confirm there preregistration :).
In any case, 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 check your account is working by the time we open registrations. This system supports automatic event opening, so this will be done precisely at specified time on February 1st. Stay tuned!
We will also use Paypal to make it easier to pay and validate your registration.
The competition will be held at the “Col de Tende”, at the top of the “Limone” ski resort, during the weekend of the 17-19th July 2019.
Two very deep valleys (north and south) feed constantly the slopes only a few hundred meters away from each other depending on wind direction.
Registration of pilots on the slope and frequency verification will start on Friday 17th 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. No exception this time so really register FAST!
