BMFA F5J League Event - Sunday 20th September – Leigh Park Farm, Tonbridge Tonbridge club are hosting their first F5J event at Leigh Park Farm, Nr Tonbridge, Kent on Sunday 20th September. This is a new venue for a F5J BMFA league event at what is probably the best RC Glider Flying field in the South. We will be running a relaxed and fun competition for both existing competition flyers and new pilots alike. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A BMFA MEMBER TO ENTER BUT MUST BE ABLE TO PROOVE YOU HAVE INSURANCE Directions to the field can be found here: https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Leigh+Park+Farmemail@example.com,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: https://bmfa.org/DesktopModules/Bring2mind/DMX/Download.aspx?Command=Core_Download&EntryId=1060&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 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. - Book in from 9am. First flight’s at 10am Entry fee £10.00 (BMFA requirement) payable on the day. Proof of BMFA membership (card is sufficient) required Closing date for entries is 6.00pm Friday 18th September. 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 BARCS, Esoaring and Flyquiet websites by no later than 4pm on Saturday 19th September. Here's hoping the weather gods look kindly upon us on the day! Colin.
