Hi Adrian


trying very hard... will let you know asap.


Just one query, why are most of the comps on a Sunday? any reason for not having the odd Saturday? (skelbrooke the exception)


THanks

Hi Steve custom and practice I guess.
A Saturday competition would be fine certainly Skelbrooke has never suffered because of it.
Give it a go.

Hi Adrian


Managed to secure a date for next year either April (maybe May) or October, Saturday I think would be preferred at the club.


If you could let me know what dates would be best and then I will confirm with the committee.


Good news though


Steve

Hi Steve that's really good it will be great to have a new competition venue on the calendar next season.
Particularly with members keen to enter.
Have a look at the calendar and give me a call (07976 244004) and we can select a date.
Cheers
Adrian

There have been 2 amendments to the 2017 Competition Calendar these are:-

A domestic competition at Baldock, Herts on the Saturday 7th October ( this replaces the proposed competition at Hurley which will be rescheduled)

A domestic competition at Sculthorpe, East Anglia on the Sunday 1st October.

Further details will be posted on this forum by the respective CD's in due course.

Just a big thank you to the Steve Edwards, Garry Peacock and Peter Jenkins for there efforts in getting these competitions approved by their clubs.

Two updates on the 2017 Competition Calendar.

The Championships will be held at the new BMFA flying site at Buckminster - CD Matt Hoyland

BMFA Nationals confirmed at Barkston Heath - CD Matt Hoyland.

Exciting to visit Buckminster for our premier event and excellent to be back at Barkston for the Nats.

Adrian


Is the GBRCAA Championships a two-day event? I ask because on the Sunday I have a prior commitment as an elite athlete (actually not very elite at all).


Thanks
