US Junior FF Team Selection Standings

Feb Feb had a great junior flyer turn out, 18 in total with 7 from the USA.
There is one more contest to complete the USA Jr FF team selection contest calendar (SCAT Annual, March 16-17).
In addition to the score system represented below, the Jr flyer must demonstrate the ability to assemble and fly their models. The USA team is looking pretty clear, the flyers listed below have demonstrated their flying ability. As generally known, per FAI rules, teams may have 4 persons if one is a female. So currently, we will have 4 flyer F1A team. Likewise, there is room for one more flyer on the F1B team and room for two more on the F1P team. As a historical reminder, Austin Gunder, two times F1J World Champion flew his first of three Jr World Champions with a TD powered Maverick! Flying at the SCAT annual would place the junior flyer in contingency to make the USA Jr Team. If Lost Hills is not feasible but you have or know of an interested junior flyer, contact me soon as there is a provision to place a flyer on an empty team spot even if they have not flown in the program. But time is running out. Planning for Jr World Champs in Macedonia this summer have started. Entry forms and fund raising are underway.
