PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL MODELS WILL NEED TO BE NOISE TESTED PRIOR TO BEING ALLOWED TO FLY AT THE SITE     Over 82dB at 7m using LMAC equipment = no fly :(


FAI noise limit of 94 dBA at 3m will now be adopted.


please come prepared for this.

Have been watching the weather forecast this week and it has included 60mph gusts , rain , and fog


Currently forecast is for heavy rain all day so heading towards  cancelling the comp but a final decision will be made 11am in the morning.


Chris

COMP WILL GO AHEAD

Chris


Do you have a lat long for the entrance to the field.  I've had a look on Google Maps around Foxton Locks but cannot see a field that looks like a model aircraft patch.


Thanks


Peter

Peter


Aim for N52.4921114, W0.9975407


That's the entrance road to the site, which is to the West of that point.


See you there.

A big thank you to Chris Bond for making a good call to run with the comp.  A tough call for your first Comp CD! 


Thank you also to Adrian M and Alan S as well as Kevin and Garry for judging.


Big thank you to Eddy for calling and coaching me.


Well done to the Clubman entrants for flying in the difficult cross wind conditions.


Finally, thanks to Leicester MAC for letting us use their field.  What great facilities!
