  • Entries are open for Radioglide 2018


    Radioglide 2018 returns to the BMFA National Centre near Grantham over the late May Bank holiday 26th - 28th. With the centre facilities now maturing, this year’s event should prove to be one of the most exciting with four action packed competitions, the BARCS AGM and the return of the popular Soaring Market Swap Meet.

    Saturday 26th will see the running of the prestigious BMFA F5B National Championships, sharing the field with a BARCS ELG competition. The latter is open to BARCS members only and offers the opportunity to fly a double entry of Open and either 2 metre or electric 100” at a discounted rate. BARCS members who enter both the ELG and the subsequent F5J event benefit from a further £5 discount for the two £25 down from £30.

    Sunday sees the F3K DLG’s take to the field alongside day one of a 2 day F5J competition run to UK variation rules. In the evening, the formal side of proceedings take place in the conference hall with the AGM, as announced elsewhere, commencing at 6.00pm followed at around 7.00pm with the running of a free bring and buy swap meet for you to bring along your pre-loved soaring items to pass on to new homes and pass the time chatting to fellow enthusiasts.

    On Monday, the final rounds of the F5J competition will complete.

    The on field activities are subject of course to the weather.

    Those who wish may camp on the field, whilst those who prefer more comfort should find plenty of local accommodation to suit their pocket. See BMFA National Centre for more information.

    One minor problem .

    Having the AGM Sunday evening ,

    If the weather is good and flying continues till late afternoon ,those not camping will not be able to attend .

    Having stayed a few times now at Buckminster  we have found  trying to find somewhere to eat  Sunday evening difficult .

    Pub type accommodation  and local restaurant  kitchens close at 7pm  often not open at all after Sunday lunch .

    Minor problem but for some after a long day at the field ,shower food etc might be more off a priority.
