  1. Now in its 38th year, Radioglide will be the first organised event to take place at the BMFA National Flying Centre 27th-29th May at Buckminster near Grantham and is being held prior to the official opening in the summer. The field itself is huge and we will be running two flight lines each day which will allow a combined Open and 100S competition and an F5B (F3Be) event to be run on Saturday, F3K and ELG (run to the proposed new rules) on Sunday (see Bulletin) and F5J on Monday. In the Open/100s and ELG formats, a second entry is possible and this is being offered at a reduced fee to encourage participation. We are also hoping to have an introductory trial of F3RES over the weekend. For those who do not know F3RES uses 2m wingspan models launched using a bungee and is becoming very popular in some European countries. Exact details will be released on the BARCS website forum, so please keep an eye there for updates. A traditional paper entry form accompanies the Bulletin BARCS members and renewers will have received in the post. Online entry is available. Radioglide Entry Form 2017 Final.pdf Click here for online entry Updates will appear in this forum topic. This is the second year that our AGM will be held on the Sunday evening of Radioglide, 28th May, and will be held for the first time in the new hall at the NFC. The BARCS AGM is an important get-together and we encourage all members to come along, hear the officers’ reports, debate any change proposals and witness the award of a BARCS fellowship. There will be an opportunity to discuss the future of soaring classes in the UK. Camping will be available on site, with toilets and running water but no hook-ups are available at this early stage in the Centre’s development. For those seeking a little more comfort, there are several Travelodge, Premier Inn and other options in the local area, the site is close to the A1 and around 20 minutes from Melton Mowbray, half an hour from Grantham. Venue address BMFA National Flying Centre is in Sewstern Road, Buckminster, Near Grantham, NG33 5RW, Coordinates 52.7792 N, 0.7066 W
