Thanks Adrian!  For those who haven't been following the IP meeting and AGM discussions I thought it worth clarifying the new competition category designations included in the calendar.


BMFA Team Selection - Team Selection events are now held at the BMFA Nationals, GBRCAA Championships and UK World Cup.  These events will select the GBR Team for World and European Championships.  Except for the World Cup we will continue to run National League events (all schedules) in parallel at these events with the added bonus that entry numbers are unrestricted.


BMFA Open - These events are open to any BMFA member and were previously designated by the GBRCAA and are still described by the BMFA competition rules as 'centralised' events.  BMFA Open events will select the England Team and our International team members for the Triple Crown for FAI pilots.  These events will also contribute towards National League Points for all schedules.


National League - These events were previously designated as 'domestic' competitions.  No other changes, just the name that is hopefully a little more relevant and descriptive.
