    Hotel Accommodations For Meet

    Attention CFL FPV enthusiasts, and our hardcore brethren that will be traveling to the meet from far flung destinations (Im looking at you, jdoyle). We have secured group rates at two nearby hotels for snoozing and showering (and please, do shower). There is a college open house going on the same weekend and some places are starting to book up, so it is advised that you make your reservations sooner rather than later.

    Here are the options:

    Hampton Inn (for those fancy folk that enjoy things like feather duvets and heated pools)

    Hampton Inn Leesburg
    9630 US Hwy 441
    Leesburg, FL 34788
    352.315.1053

    Distance From Meet 4.5 miles

    Group Rate - $89 (rate expires 9/21)
    Group Code: FPV
    Valid for reservations from 10/3 10/7
    Note that if you book right now and pre-pay for a non-refundable reservation there are rooms available for $84.

    https://secure3.hilton.com/en_US/hp/...tyhocn=LEEFLHX

    Microtel Inn & Suites (for those thriftier types that think all hotel rooms look the same with the lights off)

    Microtel Inn & Suites Leesburg
    9700 US 441
    Leesburg, FL 34788
    352.315.1234

    Okay, after much suspense, we're finally posting the schedule for contests and giveaways. We couldn't give you guys too much time to practice for the contests...

    Click For Event Schedule

    Registration Details

    There will be a pilot fee of $15 per day, however you may purchase a package deal of all three days for $35. In addition to gaining access to the event itself, all contests, and special events like "movie night" on Saturday evening, you will also receive one entry into the prize giveaway for each day you register for. So, a single day of flying will give you one shot at prize pool, but a package deal will give you three entries. Even if you only plan to fly one or two days, it may be worth buying the three day package just for the extra chances at all of the great prizes!

    Pre-registration has ended. You may sign up onsite.

    This is going to be an epic event, and the list of good stuff keeps growing. This is definitely one you don't want to miss out on. Hope to see you there!
