COMP CANCELLED
After reviewing the weather forecasts from various web sites, we have reluctantly decided to cancel this competition. 

Tonbridge club are hosting a BMFA League F5J competition at Leigh Park Farm, Nr Tonbridge, Kent on Sunday 28th October 2018.  We will be running a relaxed and fun competition for both existing competition flyers and new pilots alike. All are welcome with plenty of help available on the day for F5J newbie's.

Directions to the field can be found here:
https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Leigh+Park+Farm/@51.2091254,0.19327,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x47df4fda3f5fd36d:0xfd76d04136677dd9?hl=en

The competition will be run to F5J rules with UK variations as published by the BMFA. Copy of the full rules can be found here:
http://bmfa.org/DesktopModules/Bring2mind/DMX/Download.aspx?Command=Core_Download&EntryId=2443&language=en-GB&PortalId=0&TabId=219

The main points for BMFA F5J comps are:
- Either Open or 2m may be flown, not both.
- Motor restart may be used (results in a zero flight score), and therefore you need only to use your eSoaring switch BUT you must reset the (200m) height limit to 300m this can often be done easily by using a reader, otherwise use a computer.
- As in eSoaring, you must provide a reader, so that your timekeeper can check your launch height immediately after landing.
- Minimum of 4 rounds to be flown.
- CD will announce whether or not a Fly-Off will be flown before the start.

Entry fee £10.00 (BMFA requirement) payable on the day.
Proof of insurance (BMFA membership card is sufficient) required

Closing date for entries is 6.00pm Friday 26th October 2018
In the event that there is any doubt as to whether the event will be run due to forecasted inclement weather, a final decision will be posted on the BARCS website no later than 3pm on Saturday 27th October.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Book in from 9am. First flight’s at 10am prompt.
