English Open F3F 2020 - 23rd August

Recommended Posts

Hello F3F flyers, it is time to wake this part of the forum back up. 

The White Sheet RFC committee has considered the guidance around sporting events, and has decided that we are able to run the 2020 English Open F3F.  As this is the first F3F competition post-lockdown it will run on 1 day only - 23rd August - with a limit of 20 pilots.

Entries should be submitted to myself by PM on this site or by email to nigel.witchalls AT blueyonder.co.uk .  Please provide your email address, BMFA number, and CAA operator number (and frequency if not using 2.4 GHz).  This entry list and (if necessary) reserve list will be placed on this post.  Arrangements for the day to ensure the event is compliant with Covid-Secure guidance will be sent to entrants by email. 

Unfortunately Stu Wallace, who has run this event very successfully for a number of years, has needed to step down from his role of White Sheet Comp Secretary due to health reasons.  In recognition of his commitment to the event, the club has decided that all proceeds from this year's event (full entry fee and raffle) will go to the two charities that Stu has supported in past years through the English Open - Histio UK and Bloodwise.  Donations also encouraged.  Many thanks to Stu for all he has done for the English Open and his enthusiasm for F3F.   Below is a pic of Stu receiving the Welsh Open 2018 trophy for fastest time.

Very well put together Nigel. 
Stuart has done a wonderful job organising the English Open, and I’m sure everyone on here wishes him well with his health. 
I can’t make it to the competition, but you will still get my entrance fee for Stu’s  charities. 
Midweek Mike.

Hi All,

I was both delighted & moved on seeing & reading Nigels opening post. I am very pleased that this yrs English open will be being staged.

I am both frustrated & dissapointed that despite my very best efforts  that due to continued health reasons I am unable to organise, run or enter this yrs event. 

My family & I were very moved  on reading that the WRFC Committee have decided that all proceeds from this year's event (full entry fee and raffle) will be going to the two charities that I have been fundraising for in memory of our son Tom (aged 26) - Histio UK and Bloodwise.

Bloodwise have very recently changed their name to Blood Cancer UK. When you have a spare moment, please follow this link to their new website so as to  discover the important life changing & saving work that they do  https://bloodcancer.org.uk/

Likewise to discover the excellent work by Histio uk, please spare a few minutes to follow this link to their website ;- https://www.histiouk.org/

 

My sincerest heartfelt thanks to all involved in the WRFC in organising this years competition, & to all pilots supporting the event. 

                   Stu
