Hi All,

 

Apologies for the lateness of the mail, registration is now open for the BMFA F3F League 5 contest to be held at the Long Mynd on the 29th September and will close on Thursday 26th September 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:

·         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, 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:

No need for any discussion on the weather call.

It looks set fair for the next few days, with decent wind strength. so comp is on.

 

Direction is Easterly so meet area will be first carpark on the left at the top of the climb out of Church Stretton (The Burway).

Follow signs to Midland Gliding club in Church stretton - or folllow your nose - either will work fine. Its just up the hill!

 

See you all there 8.30am - be prepared for a mostly flat but 20minute walk to the slope.

20 minutes 20 minutes, more like 1hr for me at the moment.

I think I need to set off half an hour before you guys.

And you'll still overtake me halfway up.

See you Sunday.

Dave, as you know I have update Andy but please remember the email for registration is very clear how to enter a comp. I have unfortunately been extremely busy which is why this was left off the list. In future they will not be accepted.
