This is a 'BARTLETTS LEAGUE’ qualifier to be held on the EQFA's new 'Bartletts Farm' field . The usual 3 classes of model can be flown, Open, 2Mtr and 100” (up to 2.6mtr allowed), and each can score points in their own Bartletts league. Please note that models must comply with BARCS class restrictions if you wish to also score in the appropriate BARCS Leagues. 2 entries allowed per pilot, but each entry must be with different class models. AMRT (Height limiter) CAN be set to any height up to 300mtrs, but MUST be set with a maximum motor run time of 30sec. Scoring as per F5J, i.e. a penalty of 3 points per metre but for launching over 175 metres BARCS rules allow one re- launch in a slot, and for an emergency re start if necessary. N.B. a re-launch will be counted as a scoring flight. Motor re-start will result in a zero score for that slot. Entry £5.00 payable on the day. Please register your entry in this thread, all will be assumed to on 2.4 unless advised. I'm the guest CD!

I am hoping that John Greenfield will be able to run a GPS Triangle training weekend and light competition on the weekend of 29 / 30th June 2019 at Baldock, Hertfordshire. but we do need some idea of the interest, as the NLMFC will need to clear the weekend for the event. The format of the weekend is to promote GPS Triangle flying and all are welcome. Loan GPS kit will be available to anyone who would like a try. All you need is your favourite self launch sport glider that is big enough to see flying around the course. Anything over 3m will be fine but smaller models could be used. For those who already have the kit, this is an ideal opportunity to develop your skills with experienced GPS flyers on hand to assist. Camping on the site will be available all weekend. There are proper flush toilets and water on site and food will be available during the day. Please respond to this post if you are interested in this event as we need to have an idea of numbers so we can make it work, updates will be provided here as we get any news. Some may ask why is this here on the BARCs site - well because its Silent flight - you will need a self launch model 3 meters or more (smaller is OK as long as your eyesight is better than mine) Its a fun weekend and a chance to see yet another side to our love of Glider flying and thermal hunting. For further detail please comment on this topic and I will keep an eye and update as required Cheers . Bernie
