Forwarding a more cheerful one from BMFA SE Area. Any aspiring pylon racers (I
can think of one or two people who fly like they are) or potential spectators?

Re. Pylon Racing day at Paddock Wood, Sunday 20th January 2019.
We would be grateful if you could please distribute the following to your
members. There are still some entries available and if any of your members
would like to enter or come along and watch, you’d be very welcome. Anyone
interested in coming should email Gavin Barden as soon as possible at
A Pylon Race meeting has been arranged at Paddock Wood on Sunday 20th January.
It is for E2K electric or the IC powered Club 20 airframes. As most pylon
meetings are up north, we would really like this one to be a great success and
then hopefully more local ones like this will take place in the future.
So if you have a pylon racer such as an Equaliser or any other model that would
qualify, do please think about entering for the 20th. It would be great to show
the other competitors that we have sufficient interest down here.
If you like club pylon races, you’ll really enjoy this day of racing and I can
thoroughly recommend it. This is very much an entry level pylon meeting and is
ever so friendly and informal and a whole lot of fun.
The venue too, is superb, with a club house with tea and coffee all day, decked
area with a fire pit to keep warm, hanger and for a small charge, breakfast
rolls and bbq lunch!
So, basically we need to know who is interested in flying and who is interested
in just coming along to watch as soon as possible. If you want to come along on
the 20th at all, please do email Gavin at the address below which is in the
article Gavin wrote for the last SE area BMFA Newsletter. I’ve attached it
below again as it gives a bit more information. Gavin will then let you know
the address of the venue. Also, if you have any questions or want information
on regulations, please do email Gavin as well and he’ll be happy to tell you
more about it.
We really hope you can come along to fly or to watch.
