My turn now..Thanks for C.D.ing the first two comps Cliff.

Enteries are invited for the 3rd BMFA/Midland Region E'soaring competition of 2019 at Fish Meadow.................THE COMP IS ON
Upton Upon Severn ( With thanks to The Malvern Soaring Association ) on,]Sunday 19th May.[/u]
[/color]
Fish Meadow is at Upton upon Severn, Worcestershire, Upton is situated on the banks of
the river Severn and lies mid-way between the towns of Tewkesbury and Malvern. It is close to
Exit 1 on the M50 motorway.

On leaving the M50 at exit 1, take the A38 north for three miles, in the direction of Worcester,
to the staggered junction with the A4104 at Bluebell Farm and signed to Upton upon Severn.
Turn left on to the A4104. In one mile you gain access to the flying field via a slip road from the A4104
(near the Marina)

When aproaching from the East, the slip road is on your left an about 100 yards before you reach the bridge
over the River Severn just a few yards past the entrance to the Upton Marina.

The slip road runs parallel to the main road towards the bridge and river, follow the slip road slowly and go to the right and
follow it down the slope and under the tunnel this then opens out into Fish Meadow. Access is normally
controlled by a locked barrier but this will be open on the day from 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM on the day of the comp
and again in the afternoon.

A post code of WR8 0PB will put you on the slip road but do not turn left into East Waterside.

8:30 to 9:30- Signing on, flight testing and Altimeter checks where required.
9:45am- Pilot Briefing.
10:00am Contest Start time
after three or possibly four rounds - 30 minute lunch break
4:30-Contest Ends
5:00- Results and Prize giving.

A £7.00 entry fee is payable at signing in.

this is your first E'soaring event then the switch will be loaned F.O.C.

Hoping to enter , but my Radian Pro is in need of a good sorting ( not having flown it for yonks ). So I will not register until I am certain it is ok. Just fore-warning you ! Plus , my height limiter has mysteriously hidden itself somewhere on my boat !

Maria,
I have a spare height limiter to lend if needed. Please make sure yours is set to
175Mtrs which is the launch height. I have put your name in to the comp just to encourage you!
I assume your Radian is the 2mtr one.
Cheers Ian P
