Our first round of the league was due to be run at Bartletts Farm. But due to unforseen circumstances I am unable to run it, and the comp will now be run at the excellent Lt.Bentley site near Colchester, Essex.

CD will now be Russell Mexome

If weather conditions at the time indicate that Sunday 24th will be unflyable,  we then hope to use Saturday 23rd.

Please indicate if you are able to enter on either day or just one. Sunday will always take precedence over Saturday as long as the weather is OK for the Sunday.

Your model must have an approved height limiting/data logging device which can show the max height  your model goes to during its motor run time and 10seconds after your motor is shut off.

The limiting function must be set to allow maximum 30seconds motor run time, and the height limiting function must either be disabled or set to 300m.
Motor restart is permitted at any time during flight, but will result in a zero score for that round.

Two classes of model can be entered, either Open or 2Metre but only one entry permitted.
Prizes awarded on the day and points scored will go towards the National League.

The competition will be run to BMFA Local rules, 6 rounds will be flown if conditions permit and there will not be a flyoff
 
Entry fee £10.00 (BMFA requirement) payable on the day
 
Proof of BMFA membership (card is sufficient) required - please supply your BMFA number with your entry
 
Timing on the day may vary, and all/any help to set up the field will be appreciated.
But the plan is as usual, book in from 9am.  First flight’s 10am.


Please post your entries here by 8pm on Friday 22nd your frequency and a reserve if flying on 35MHz

Hi Guys,

Looking at most of the weather forecasts for the weekend it looks similar for both days, and as the Sunday is the preferred day looks as if that will be the one to pick. However I will check weather tomorrow a.m. and put a post up as to exactly what I intend to do, but its looking 80% sure that it will be the Sunday.
