    Notice of BARCS AGM 2016

    The BARCS AGM will be in in the function room of the Plough Inn, Marsh Gibbon (Near Bicester) at 7pm on Sunday 29 May, 2016. The AGM will follow the earlier “Multi-launch” competition, part of Radioglide 2016 Agenda: Minutes of the Previous Annual General Meeting. Matters Arising. Receive an Annual Report from the Executive Committee. Review an examined statement of the funds of BARCS. Elect the Executive Committee. Set the annual subscription for the ensuing year. Appoint Examiners of the accounts for the ensuing year. Consider and vote on proposals listed below (and any late safety proposals). AOB. ---------------------------------------------------------- Committee Proposal 1 – BARCS Committee requirements That in the Constitution section of the BARCS Handbook 1.2.9 the requirement that the Executive Committee meet at least four times per year be changed to a requirement to meet at least three times per year. That additionally the Quorum definition for meetings of the Executive Committee be changed from a minimum of six attendees including at least two officers to a minimum of four attendees including at least two officers That additionally the period of notice for Members Proposals which according to clause 1.2.12 (a) is 60 days be changed to 30 days prior to an AGM. Reason: With the advent of electronic communications there is less need for physical face to face meetings with the expense in both time and money involved. It is now custom and practice for the Executive Committee to meet three times per annum and this (augmented by significant electronic communication) has proved adequate for the orderly administration of BARCS. Additionally the Executive Committee is smaller than in years past when there were Regional Representatives and also, to avoid travel, it is more efficient for some Officers to report in writing rather than physically attend. The revised quorum definition is not an expectation that such meetings will be only four people but is a prudent step to ensure that such meetings are not nugatory, if events result in an occasional meeting with a smaller attendance. Additionally the 60 day period of notice is a legacy of the lead time required to insert such a proposal into a hard copy document to be sent to members. Now that the AGM notice is posted on the web site, 30 days notice is entirely adequate and allows for members who only recall the perceived need for a proposal once an AGM looms. Committee Proposal 2 – Landing Tape Standardisation That in the text in sections 4.1/6(d) i and 4.2.9 (h) of the BARCS Handbook dealing with bonus points when landing in Open and Multi-launch rules be amended to reflect the wording of the relevant ELG rules section. That is: Landing bonus will be awarded provided the model comes to rest within the arc of the landing tape. The measurement shall be taken from the nose of the model. No landing bonus is awarded if the model touches the competitor or his assistant during landing. A landing within 1metre of the target scores 50pts - within 2metres of the target scores 45pts. A landing within 3metres of the target scores 40pts - within 4metres of the target scores 35pts. A landing within 5metres of the target scores 30pts - within 6metres of the target scores 25pts. A landing within 7metres of the target scores 20pts - within 8metres of the target scores 15pts. A landing within 9metres of the target scores 10pts - within 10metres scores 5pts. A landing beyond 10meters receives no bonus points. Reason: The current Landing tapes for Open and Multi-launch contests are 12.5 M long graduated from 50 to 0, in 10 point increments. The ELG tapes are 10 M long with 5 point graduations. The shorter tapes allow use of smaller spot spacing so helping with smaller fields and, above all, prevents CDs having to find multiple versions of Landing tapes – those for F3J and F3B are still different but the ELG tapes are standard for F5J and all other electric powered soaring rules. Such electric events are now in the majority and standardisation of the landing tapes is sensible and makes life much easier for CDs. These ELG tapes retain the 50 point maximum landing bonus (rather than the 100 potential bonus points for F3J) and 50 is considered to be a more appropriate number for BARCS events. Members Proposal 1- change to Multi-launch rules for HLGs Proposal by Jef Ott 3184 Seconded by Mike Fantham 1795 Tony Hickson 3669 Richard Swindells 3529 Proposal: That the Multi Launch rules be amended as follows:- (new words shown in red here) i) Clarification for hand launch gliders - change the last sentence of 2c) to read :- Devices except bungee equipment which do not remain part of the model during and after launch are not allowed. ii) Clarification for hand launched gliders - add new words to the end of 4. :- Each competitor is allowed two helpers and a timekeeper. The timekeeper may act as a helper and may also launch the competitor’s model unless it is a hand launched model. iii) Safety corridor fixed at 5 metres and field layout diagram added in 6. – the first sentence to read :- In the layout of the field it is recommended that a 5 metre wide “Safety Corridor” must be set out. of about 6 metres width See sketch below. iv) Sentence in 6. modified to put all launches upwind of the safety corridor :- All launches and re-launches should take place upwind of from the safety corridor at its upwind side. v) Addition of time penalties for catching and landing in the safety corridor – add a new paragraph after the end of the first paragraph in 6. :- The flight score is zero if the model:- a) touches a person other than the launcher during launch. b) touches a person during flight or landing. c) is caught. d) is not entirely outside the safety corridor on landing. vi) Relaunch bonus increased for hand-launched gliders – change the sentence in 9 f) to read :- For these hand launched gliders a 2 6 second bonus will be added to the flight time of their second, third and fourth flights in any slot. No such bonus will be added if any part of the model is upwind of the downwind edge of the safety corridor when it comes to rest on landing. vii) Addition of zero landing bonus for safety issues – add new words at the end of 9 h). No landing bonus is awarded, if any part of the model is in the safety corridor when it comes to rest after landing, if the model touches a person other than the launcher during launch, or if it touches a person during flight or landing. viii) ‘Novice flier’ exception introduced – change the last sentence in 9 f) to read :- Only the final landing (in a flying slot) qualifies for potential bonus points for the landing unless the competitor is a Novice Flier – see 9i). ix) Include the concept of ‘Novice Fliers’. Add new paragraph 9 i) :- 9 i) A Novice flier is a Hand Launch Glider pilot that has never flown in a BMFA F3K League event, and has never had a top 4 place in a BARCS MLG comp. Novice fliers get the option to nominate the best landing of the possible four landings, per slot, for their Landing Bonus. Reason: Participation in F3K is shrinking, because of a lack of new blood. Hand Launch Glider pilots need encouraging to get more of them to compete in Multi Launch comps. It is thought that maybe F3K is a bit daunting, for anyone that has never flown in a competition with an HLG. Solution It is our belief that BARCS MLG might be a good platform for encouraging fresh pilots with Hand Launch Gliders, including bungee launchers, into competition, if the rules are adapted to make it more attractive. Problems However, the present rules are slightly ambiguous regarding the catching of models and the field layout is at CD discretion, regarding incorporating a safety corridor. Both of these things need firming up before our suggestion can work / be acceptable in all cases. Conclusion We believe it needs stating that a safety corridor must be used, as per the attached sketch, and that all launching occurs at the upwind side of this. Once this is done, it becomes possible to have a standard field layout, and a standard sensible time bonus equalling the time to retrieve a Hand Launch model from the landing area, transfer it to the launching area and re-launch it. My suggestion as stated below is the minimum that should be awarded for re-launching, and should be reviewed after practical experience has justified whether the revised bonus is sensible. The changes in the Proposal will make for a more level playing field across the disciplines in Multi Launch Competitions. ISS 3 11/04/2016

    2013 AGM Proposals

    Committee Proposal One That a change to the rules for Open and 100S competitions can be agreed by a straightforward majority at an AGM Reason: A requirement was put in place requiring a 2/3 majority for such rule changes. This was applicable in a period where there was serious instability in such rules and this is no longer the case. A simple majority applies to ELG and Multi-launch rules so applying to all class rules simplifies and makes for consistency. Committee Proposal Two That in the Multilaunch rules the following text is inserted in the appropriate place: “Where a competitor enters two classes of model at an event, only one score, the highest, will be used to calculate the Multilaunch League Score.” Reason: Clarification Committee Proposal Three That in the Open and 100S rules, words be added such that when computing the final round scores the CD may, at his discretion, drop a round score after 4 rounds. An announcement as to whether a score will be dropped or not will be made at the pilots briefing prior to the first round Reason: Most thermal soaring competitions use a dropped score, E soaring, F5J and Multilaunch after 4 rounds, F3J after 7 rounds and there is no mention of a difference between a 1 or 2 day competition. In some circumstances, like the Winter series, where it is a monthly competition league with no fly offs and a dropped round, it may be better not to have a dropped score, thus the caveat of giving the CD the required discretion. Members Proposal One That the launch settings for Electric models used in Multilaunch events, be raised from the current 150 metres to 175 metres. Reason: To even up the launch heights so as they are more in line to winch launched moulded models that now predominate. Proposed Brian Austin Barcs 230, Seconded Peter Mitchell Barcs 1568, R Potts Barcs 807 & Peter Hindle Barcs 228

Election, Executive Committee For 2013 8. Fixing of Membership Subscriptions 2013 9. Appointment of Auditors 2013 10. Radioglide, Interglide & the Nationals 11. Consideration of Motions 12. Any Other Business 13. Calling of the 43rd AGM Committee Proposals Proposal 1 That the Regional designation be removed from Open Leagues and a National league created instead. Reason: The number of participants has fallen and Open models are largely flown in Multi-launch events with few class specific competitions now being run. This also brings Open League in line with all other classes. Proposal 2 That the ‘k’ factor be removed from RES scores in calculating All Rounder Trophy Reason: The ‘k’ factor was designed to reflect the achievement of scoring in well contested classes. RES is a sub class, in particular of 100s models, and therefore is being rewarded disproportionately. Proposal 3 That the text in the Multi-launch and ELG rules listing specific part numbers for height limiters be deleted and replaced with: “any appropriate height limiter device”. Reason: When the listing was initially created only one height limiter was commercially available. Three types are currently listed and a fourth is now available and it is probable that more types will follow. The change proposed will avoid year on year retrospective action to amend the listing. Proposal 4 That the provision allowing models with a power limit of 200Watts/Kg in ELG competitions be deleted. Reason: 200W/Kg was always seen as a transitory provision following the introduction of height limiter devices. Now that multiple height limiters are available and almost exclusively used, the 200W/Kg provision is not needed. In any event it was hard to enforce and there were real difficulties in implementing the associated processing. Proposal 5 That the requirements for minimum numbers of competitors to provide for a valid competition (for league purposes) be reduced in all classes down to 8 Reason: It is clearly desirable that as many competitions are held at local level to increase and maintain the participation in all classes. It is not easy to ensure the previous minimum of 16, or in some classes 12, entrants was achieved and this factor deterred CDs from even attempting to stage any events. Proposal 6 That the requirement for the minimum number of flyers in a “slot” be reduced from 4 to 3 in all classes. Reason: This follows directly from the previous proposal, if the entry numbers are low it may not be practical to matrix 4 flyers per slot. Although 4 is encouraged as the normal minimum, this change provides some flexibility

    BARCS AGM 2011 Report

    The preceding “Soaring Mart” was well attended and, although there have been a larger number of “Traders” present in some years past, a good number did attend including some interesting newcomers and the quality and relevance of what was on offer was excellent and satisfactory business was done. The AGM itself opened with two prestigious awards being made. A BARCS Fellowship to Neville Warby for his years of unassuming but totally reliable and hard working support of innumerable events. The Eppler Trophy was awarded to Martin Bell for his key role in bringing height limiters into practical use so enabling the formats of all current electric soaring contests. Neville Warbey Martin Bell Following the expiry of Chris Moynihan’s period of office as BARCS President, Graham James becomes President. The BARCS committee was re-elected without changes and is: Graham James – President (but retaining his responsibility for trophies and Leagues), Robin Sleight – Chairman, Peter Alllen – Secretary (and for 2012 BARCS Rep to the SFTC), Jeff Stocking – Treasurer, Hayley Hawes – F3K, Martin Bell – Electric Soaring, Martin Newnham – F3F, Peter Mitchell – Membership records and Chris Moynihan and Chas Dunster as Committee members. In addition Jon Edison was elected as the BARCS Rep to the BMFA Technical Council. The membership fees were agreed to remain unchanged from 2011, £10 per individual member. It was agreed that the web site was excellent and a vote of thanks was given to Austin Guerrier for his work on this. However it is essential that to maintain its topicality that more people contribute especially with short event reports including a couple of photographs for interest. The view of members was sought on the future venue for the Silent Flight Nationals. This is a decision for the SFTC but, on balance, the opinion appears to be that: given a choice between an excellent site or a juxtaposition with Barkston Heath, the preference is to get an excellent site. All committee proposals received an adequate majority and were therefore passed. They have been incorporated into the 2012 Members Handbook/Rulebook but in summary are: * A “Restricted” class of electric soarer was agreed – either of 2 metre span with no limits on control functions OR a 100 inch span limit but with control functions (other than the motor) restricted to Rudder, Elevator and Spoiler. * In Multi-launch competitions where it was considered that the current rules unreasonably favoured electric models, the height limiter for such models must now cut off at 150 metres (not 200 as before 200). There was concern expressed that this might now be too severe and give a bias towards winch launched gliders. If experience shows this to be so, an option for the next AGM is to reduce the distance from the winch to the turnaround pulley – (say) to 130 metres. * In multi-launch competitions wording was changed to allow CDs the discretion to accept double entries but not to a level which would significantly cut the number of rounds would be possible to fly without such double entries. * The “CAM” height limiter for electric models was approved for use in Multi-launch and ELG competitions. * The dropped score in ELG competitions will now apply after six rounds and not (as in 2011) after only four rounds. A few points were raised for future consideration by the committee including that of allowing advertising on the web site The 2012 AGM was agreed to be scheduled for Sunday 2 December 2012 at the Oadby Football Club starting at (new time) 1.30pm.

    2011 AGM Committee Proposals

    Committee Proposals for changes to BARCS Handbook Rules Committee Proposal One To create a “Restricted Model” class for Electric Soaring events 3.3 Model Characteristics That a new section 3.3.7 be created with the following text: “A restricted electric model must either have a wing span not exceeding 2 metres (with no limitations on the control surfaces or functions) OR alternatively have a wing span not exceeding 100 inches but with control functions (other than the motor control) limited to rudder, elevator and spoiler only. The control functions for the flying surfaces are thus the same as for a 100s model”. Renumber the existing 3.3.7 and 3.3.8 (dealing with nose radius definition and ballast to become 3.3.8 and 3.3.9 respectively. Also change section 4.2.2 (dealing with multi launch rules) to read: Electric models shall also lie within the area, weight, wing loading restrictions as defined in the Standard Rules but in addition they may not exceed 4000mm in wingspan for Open Class models, or 2000mm/100 inches as relevant for the restricted model class. Also change section 4.2.1 (dealing with the ELG rules) to read: The electric models can, if the flyer so elects, be of the restricted model class rather than Open electric. If a restricted electric model is used throughout the event that will count towards a restricted model electric league score as and when such a league is established. Reason This change formalises the class which includes 2 metre models but avoids creating yet another sub class. There are numerous redundant 100s models suitable for electric conversion and the performance of an RES model of 100 inch span (including the greater difficulty of achieving a precision landing should be comparable to a multifunction 2 metre model. This change is to encourage greater participation by giving a new lease of life to such 100S models. Committee Proposal Two To better equalise the launch height gained in Multi-launch events That the text of the final two sentences of section 4.2.2 b of the Multi launch Rules be changed to read: The height limiter device should be set for cut-off at a height of 150 metres above the launch height or for 30 seconds from “power on”, whichever comes first. The height limiter switch must be installed in such a way that adequate venting to it occurs such that outside air. Reason Experience of Multi launch competitions during 2011 has shown that electric models with the height limiter set at 200 metres are at a significant launch advantage relative to winch launched gliders. This is especially so in light winds. Additionally the electric models can use the “power on” phase to penetrate to the most promising section of the sky whereas the winch launched gliders are, by necessity, restricted in where they are positioned when free of the winch line. This again gives the electric models an especially valuable advantage in windy conditions. The change will even out the playing field in both light and stronger wind conditions. Committee Proposal Three Use of Models in Multi launch competitions That the text of section 4.3.2 a be changed to read: Double entries where, for example, the second entry is of a different model class, will be permitted with the specific agreement of the CD. The CD will determine whether or not to accept double entries dependant on the total number of entries received. This is to ensure as much flying, with as many rounds as possible, for all competitors in the time available. Reason The current text of this section prohibits double entries for “large” events and generally does not encourage them. Provided the double entries received do not result in a significant loss of the number of rounds which may be flown in any event, such double entries can be valuable in making up the numbers, indeed they may be necessary in order to ensure a viable competition. Committee Proposal Four To allow an alternative height limiter for electric models This is intended as a provisional change to allow the impact of it to be monitored through 2012 and also in recognition that further height limiting devices are confidently expected to be available during the course of 2012. That Multi launch section 4.2.12 be amended to add to the list of allowed height limiters is the (USA manufactured) CAMlimiter. This would be achieved by changing the words January 2010 to January 2012 and inserting after the web address for RC-Electronics the words: The “CAM” limiter is also approved for BARCS ELG events” ELG Rules section 4.4.1.d. Incorporate the same changed wording as for 4.2.12 above Reason The CAM limiter (which does not have downloading capability) is cheaper and has been widely used in the “Bartletts” series of events without any problems. The nominal lack of “anti zoom” feature of this limiter has not proved to be an issue in practice relative to the RC-Electronics limiters. However this will be monitored during the 2012 season to ensure that flyers are not unfairly exploiting this feature by flying techniques not thought to be in the spirit of the rules. A check on the setting of the limiter (as may be required under Rule 4.3) is still possible (by counting the set up bleeps) without downloading and this limiter can be set to 100, 150 or 200 metres thus making it suitable for both multi launch and ELG events. Committee Proposal Five Dropped scores in ELG events That the dropped score in ELG rules 4.4.7a applies only after six or more rounds are flown – not four as at present The text would now read: Where more than 5 rounds are flown the lowest score will be discarded. Reason Due to the nature of the event, ELG contests proceed quickly and, given reasonable weather, it is not difficult to get five or more rounds completed. Thus dropping a score after (just) four rounds is not best suited to this type of event. Download the Proposals here.
