  Updated 5/9/2021: 
  USA F3P team trials, to select the USA team at the worlds’ F3P event in 2021 scheduled for May 8th, 2021 from 12pm to 8pm local time, at the Sparta Dome in Crowne Point, Indiana, USA, has been completed!   Ray Morton, the contest director, has provided the following results:

    A total of 6 pilots entered the Team Selection contest and 3 pilots entered the aero-musicals (AFM). Don Szczur, Joseph Szczur, Greyson Pritchett, Albert (AC) Glenn, David Lockhart, and Ben Batts for the Team Selection and Joseph Szczur, Greyson Pritchett and Ben Batts for aero-musicals.  Thanks to Scott Brownewell, the venue was perfect for flying the Team Selection contest, with high ceilings and no obstructions. There was even extra time provided prior to the event for the pilots to practice, and I believe they took advantage of every single minute.    
  Because of the time constraints, pilots and judges present elected to fly 3 rounds of AP-21, drop the lowest round and carry the normalized average of the two highest rounds into the final; followed by 2 rounds of AF-21 with the lowest of the 3 scores dropped for the final score to select the team. One exciting round of AFM was also flown as well after the F3P awards ceremony. 
  Here are the results:
