Hello All

THe SF Nats Entry Form is available via the BMFA website Nationals page, or direct from this link https://bmfa.org/DesktopModules/Bring2m ... TabId=1555

BARCS will also be running ELG on Monday, as a non BMFA event, so you can have a choice of that or Open eSoaring. If you wish to fly in ELG look on the BARCS website for entry details for that competition

Schedule is slightly different from recent years:-

Saturday..... 100S Glider & 2M eSoaring
Sunday ..... F3K & F5J
Monday ..... Open eSoaring & ELG
(only 1 event per day)

Regards
Mike

I really don’t see any logic in running Esoaring and Barcs ELG on the same day at the Nationals.....this only serves to divide our hobby further.....which committee thought this was a good idea?

Is this the comp that is used an event over which selections for the national team are made? (and also the comp that some would say is not intended for anyone not wishing to try for a team place?)

Dave,

Trying to do 2 answers in one post.
Steve; a meeting between BARCS and the BMFA(SFTC) early in the year produced an agreement to host one of each others competitions as a way of "spreading the word", you might say. The first attempt was to be at Radio Glide and the second at the sF Nats. Hopefully this one will succeed.

Dave ELG is basically a soaring event with rules not unlike eSoaring; both events are purely domestic UK ones. It is not in any way connected with the Team Trials (in late July) which is to F5J rules for International electric soaring.
