Thanks for this Pete.

Is there a reason that the Wetlands days are Saturdays?  I ask as I moved Portia's Horse Riding not to clash with Sunday comps - Doh....

Also, where is Wetlands as I have never flown there?

Thanks in advance.

Wetlands is North of Retford/Nottingham.

The site is much used by our friends in the north, but is a bit too far for me for one day comp without an overnight stay. I never seem to get the time to fit one of their comps in.

For the past year or so, the weather has caused a good number of comps to be cancelled.

Because BMFA comps have to be advertised well in advance of the comp date (6 weeks minimum I think), finding a  new free date to re run the comp  often proves more or less impossible so the events are lost. 

At the Wetlands they hatched a cunning plan  to get round this, which gave the chance of flying on either weekend days, the expectation being that one of them would be flyable which is often the case.

Flat field venues are listed here Eamon.

I asked for it after struggling to find Wetlands and Upton.

Thanks Gary.

Also I have never been before, but do we know if Radioglide is on this year and Interglide?

Probably a bit early but thanks in advance.

At the moment we have set the dates but not done all of the planning etc.

Radioglide 25th to 27th May at Buckminster

Interglide 22nd to 23rd June at Hamilton Farm (my wife's birthday as it was last year, I'm in trouble again!)

  Cheers

Thanks Eddy, lets hope we have another good year🙂

14th April is at Rettendon and is F5J.

Hopefully we should not have the usual problems we get at this time of the year when the entrance lane is too wet to drive on.
