Is the entry ment to open on the 28th  Febury  or 28th  March?

Kevin's  web page contradicts its self.

It gives  both dates as the start.

He had asked us to open it today but agree it does contradict things a bit.

Once Mark T is able to fix the issue, we will update you when it will be opened.

thanks

It is what it is, the fact some people may be on a slope can't be helped.

Can someone tell me how to access the FAI number that we should now have on our models. Is it just my GBR licence number?

How's the best way to cover this requirement?

DIY printed self adhesive sticker, or is there a recognised supplier in the hobby that they can be purchased from?

According to the BMFA league rules (and for many years) we ALL should have regulation size letters on our competition models, but in the interest of attracting new pilots it has been generally ignored apart from pilots who fly in international contests.  Don't they check at La Moo?

As long as they meet the height requirement anything goes - For temporary use just use paper and an inkjet printer, and stick down with clear tape.

Not when we were there a couple of years ago. I didn't even know this was a requirement.

There's another question here. The FAI number used to be the abbreviated country name (GBR) followed by a 6-digit number (024742), which in most British cases is the BMFA membership number, but they recently introduced new FAI ID numbers, which I had thought were to replace the old system in FAI comps. I've given my new number on my entry (29379), which bears no obvious relationship to my old one (GBR 082099). When the change was first announced there was a lookup table somewhere on the web, but I don't remember where it was. I retrieved mine (which I forgot, of course) by emailing the BMFA, and got a very rapid reply.

Presumably, Martin, you should be displaying your new FAI ID now. Or have I got this wrong? Better perhaps to display both.

(I'm trying to resist saying anything rude about 'bureaucracy'. Or 'going mad'.)

Hoping Simon will step in and answer but I don believe the system was for the pilots and was miss communicated.
