Allen,

Well done.

I have already suggesting to people that if we can use this hill they should make the effort to attend.

Thank you 

 

Greg

Hi All,

           I am presently awaiting confirmation regarding the running & staging of this competition, 

My thanks again to Allen for his efforts today in securing the use of Bo-Beep should it be required, very much appreciated 👍 

Note;- I myself am continuing to recover from my 2 spinal operations & am unable to attend / run this comp. 

Rest assured as soon as I have news I will post an update.

Stu,

A good start.  We have suggested to Mike Shellim he joins us if it is on Bopeep. 

So Mike may contact you.

Regards

William I have posted the letter from the BMFA today on the other thread.  I would suggest we should be running this event on Sunday once Jon considers the substance of the text.

I have texted Jon and he kindly responded.

Jon and I can both speak as members of the BMFA SFTC.

This event can be run if the club are happy to proceed and the pilots agree to fly. 

A word of warning to John Phillips if you expect me to toss you off in every round please make sure your plane is clean.

As a pilot unless there is a material change in information between now and Sunday I am happy to attend and fly.

Greg

Competition Cancelled 

Hello All

                   I have this morning just caught up on reading both the BMFA's & the chairman of the GBSRA Jon Eddisons statements. 

Whilst this competition could proceed,  as organiser of the Southern Winter League F3f competitions I am cancelling this competition.
