Everybody is welcome to fly, or come along and see what happens.

Rules are as FAI F5J but motor restart IS allowed, with zero score penalty for that round. Set limiters to eSoaring & 300M.(30 second run also applies to 2m class as last year), or "full FAI" if you wish

Please sign up by posting on here, by PM, or email.
State; Name Class Days available (Sat/Sun) and freq if not 2.4gHz

Looking forward to to seeing you all again, not so long after the Nats for some!

Hi All

For info.
Sunday is almost certainly the preferred day at this stage BUT I am disinclined to run a comp on a breezy day where the starting numbers are at minimum.
Although there are 9 on the current list, only 7 are likely to start.
If we start with 8(min) it means 2 slots of 4(minimum number of flyers/slot for League) as you know this is very difficult format to fly as there is no slack anywhere and in the event of a single dropout the comp would be void.

I will do a post and email by this time tomorrow, confirming whether Sunday is on, or not.

Regards
Mike

Hi All

Regrettably, as I said before, Saturday is no-go due to weather and numbers.

Just updated the sign-up list for those who can do Sunday and as you can see we would only have 7 entrants, which is too few to start a comp. As I said in my last post, I would start with 9 as a minimum as it would give some leeway for adjustments in the case of pilots withdrawing but any less is tempting fate and means a 2 slot comp as well!

So, Sunday is also cancelled.
Next event is in 2 weeks time and hopefully we can get a decent number of entries.

REgards

Mike
