2012 Raffle – Winners

Great NEWS! The monster raffle was drawn on Tuesday 4th September live on the RC Radio Network show. We are indebted to Cliff Whitney for helping promote FAI soaring Teams and his generosity allowed everybody who purchased tickets in the F3J raffle to hear the numbers drawn “live” in an exciting event.

No doubt the biggest thanks from the US Team must go to Bob our Major Sponsor at Soaring USA. who fearlessly went where no one has gone before and contributed the largest Prize for the raffle with two brand new F3J models. Without his huge donation we may never have reached our fund raising goals and his easy attitude and selfless generosity made our job of promoting the raffle an easy one. The models are fabulous and the very desirable with an Xplorer and a Pike Perfect. Everybody wants one and I hope all soaring pilots in USA support Bob by visiting his store and purchasing goodies there. Thank you Bob.!

Our F3J Monster Raffle was just simply amazing. We were blessed with a huge number of extremely valuable prizes. Review what we have listed below and feast your eyes on FIVE (5) (yes that’s 5 all right!) F3J models that were won at the draw. Thank these generous donors for bringing these incredible models into USA for us and donating these 5 models to make the raffle so exciting.

We had a fabulous Futaba 8FG Super up for grabs in the raffle with a donation from Darwin Barrie at the South West Classic.
