SRFC Glider Competitions

SRFC 2019 Gliding Competitions

Note from the SRFC Glider Rep.

The mid-week competitions will take place as last year on a Thursday afternoon starting at 13:00 for an hour at Coombes, the weekend competitions will take place once per month at Ashurst starting at 11:00 finishing at 15:00 approximately on a Sunday.

Last year I introduced a second class in both competitions, namely <=2.5m and an Open class. The Open class didn’t get much support at the mid-week competitions so unless I have some requests to continue with it I shall restrict the competition to <=2.5m. If you want the Open class please please contact me.

The weekend competitions were supported in both Open and <=2.5m classes so I plan to run both of those.

The Sundays at Ashurst were quite relaxed and given the time we also played with/flew gliders off a bungee, which I hope to do again this year.

The June date at Ashurst I plan to turn into a fun-day, my thoughts are as follows:
1. I’ll take the club trainer so that anyone interested can come and have a go
2. Flying off a bungee
3. Competitions if desired though limited number of rounds
4. General glider flying time
