Bishop Hill would be perfect again this year. All we need is a good westerly wind like we did last time :thumbsup:

I'm sure Peter will arrange it for us ;)

 Hi All,

 

Registration is now open for the BMFA F3F League 4 contest to be held in Scotland on the 14th July and will close on Wednesday 10th July 2013 at 10pm.You need to send your registration directly to martinnewnham@btinternet.com (Please try not to respond to F3FYahoo Groups) using the same subject header, with the following information:

 

· Pilot Name.

 

· Pilot BMFA insurance number / 3rd party insurance details.

 

· 2  Frequencies (If on 35Mhz) or confirm 2.4ghz

 

·  Model names (maximum of 3)

 

Note: There are further contact details for me on the BMFA website if needed in the events calendar section.

 

A weather call will be made on the Friday evening, although due to the distance pilots will be traveling this maybe brought forward to Thursday.  As normal this will be published through BARCS and F3F yahoo groups.  This call will be based on local knowledge and latest weather reports.

 

All the competition dates have been made available since the beginning of January and can be viewed in any of the following locations:

 

·  http://www.bmfa.org/events/index.html select the correct month from the drop down menu.

 

·  '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>

 

Note:  All one and multi day events can be considered as Team trail events.

I will provide all meet details on Wednesday after the registration has closed and again on Friday when the weather call is made.

 

Thanks

 

Martin

There shouldn't be any problem with access to the Bishop but as Mike says, no more than 10mph on the recently re-surfaced private road up.

 

Forecast just now (very early of course) is looking like Bishop with 14-17mph WSW on Sunday with 20 deg C which would be ballistic.

 

We are planning a 60" foamie comp on the Saturday morning and maybe a spot of F3F practice in the afternoon so if you are up early I will post here as to where we will be. Looks like easterlies at present for Saturday which would put us on Pole Hill nr Kilspindie, Perthshire, Its a decent hill with an edge.

 

A map of our slopes is here - https://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?msid=202487703003799439093.0004c006fc0ba12dcacd8&msa=0

You better get busy Tom :D

 

A little early to be confident about the wind direction for the weekend but it does look promising. Another big lift day on Bishop Hill would be a bonus :thumbsup:

Hi all,

 

Does any of you know about a Hotel or Bed and Breakfast to stay over the night before? I imagine some of you have been there before and know some accomodations that are convinient.

 

thanks

 

Gonzalo.

The Bruce Inn in Falkland has a nice view of the Palace and does a good breakfast.
