MSA CALENDAR OF EVENTS FOR 2017

Version 31, dated 08th October



Club Championship Events: The thermal and Electric Soaring competitions take place at Fish Meadow, Upton−upon−Severn. The slope competitions (if scheduled) take place on the Table or North Hill area, at the Northern end of the Malvern Hills. All competitions start at 10:30 am. The "fun" events are also held at Fish Meadow on Tuesdays, starting at 15:00. Click on the links for directions to the sites.

Note :- The Club Thermal events will only be open to pure Thermal machines for scoring in the Championships. Members can use E Soarers in these events but their scores will NOT count. The same comments apply to Thermal machines in a E Soaring comp.

We also arrange a number indoor flying meetings during the winter for Radio Controlled and Indoor Free Flight models in the Sports Hall of the Elms School Colwall. These start at 7 pm and close at 9:30 pm. Please bring a pair of clean soft−soled indoor shoes with you.

Please note that we will endeavour to run the events as published but, if the weather conditions are not suitable for the event as scheduled, we will change the event. That way, we have a greater possibility of holding all the events by the end of the season. If we are unable to hold any competition on the day due to unsuitable conditions, then the originally scheduled competition will be moved to the next Sunday. The Competition Secretary will email members on the Saturday before, no later than 6.00pm, to confirm the competition being held.
