Gates open 9am. Events begin 10.00 am.  Field entry £6 per flyer. Contest entries £3 per event. Maxes to be announced on the day.

No thermistors, mylar streamers or any other type of thermal sensing equipment. (One Mylar streamer will be provided by the organisers on the day to establish wind direction.)

This event is an attempt at making fullest use of the Buckminster site, and is part of a programme to ensure a practical future for Free Flight alongside the continued use of larger fields. Depending upon circumstances it may be necessary for the CD’s to impose launch lines, to move control to respond to wind direction or to vary fly-off procedure but it is hoped that flyers will enter into the spirit of the event end enjoy the sense of inclusivity which we hope to promote.
