Welsh Open F3f 2005 - 23, 24 & 25 September

Each day you must be at the Bwlch T junction of the A4107 and A4061 (map here http://www.knewt.com/bwlch/thebwlch.htm ) by 8.00 in time for a 9:00 start. Each day the last round in progress will be that running at 17:30. If the conditions are light and a round started before 17:30 is unlikely to be completely finished that day the Competition Director will consider using group scoring so that we don't lose several hours of competition time. Group scoring will be a last resort, and will not be used if at all possible.

Frequencies and insurance 
All pilots have confirmed they hold insurance. If you want to let me have a third frequency, drop me an e-mail.

Teams
There will be a trophy for each member of the top three man team. You do not have to fly as a team, but if you want to you must notify me of your team members and name by 
31 August, as we will need to spread you out over the start list. Teams can be your country, your club, your model, your IQ, whatever you want... 

Banquet
We are organising a get together on the Saturday night. As there will be so many pilots we are hiring a hall near the famous Haywain pub in Bridgend and will organise a hot and cold buffet with a bar. We are also trying to set up an F3F simulator and projector to see what inventive drinking games we can come up with...

Price will be around Ģ10 per head. Please e-mail Paul Fram by 20 August to confirm you will be coming and if you have any special dietary requirements.

Additional information
Bases will be set back as far as possible, this will allow the safety line to go back a little also. The bases will be marked in the normal forward position by an additional marker.

Three models per competitor are allowable.

At the end of each day the scores will be calculated. The following day the pilots will fly in reverse order compared with the previous days results. For example, if you are in the lead at the end of day 1 you will be the last to fly in each round the following day. The idea is to maximise the chance of pilots of the same pace flying in the same air and to add a little excitement as the race builds.

There will only be 30 seconds ready time.

The professional buzzer men are being strongly instructed to acknowledge any errors and the pilot will refly immediately. We all know that some apparently late buzzes are just great flying, others are buzzer man error and it is this that we want to acknowledge and eradicate in a supportive way for the buzzer man.

Entree fee is Ģ25 - payable on the day first day of the competition - which covers the wages of trained buzzer men, helpers, land fees, Eurotour fees and awesome trophies.

We are grateful for these tremendous prizes
