General Circular from Bob Skinner

General Circular – January 2005

TO: Special Interest Groups of the SAMAA

This is a general communication to the Special Interest Groups. Some matters are for information; others need your action.

Team selection parameters and processes
This is another reminder for those competitive SIGs that have international participation. You must table their team selection parameters to the SAMAA management committee for ratification, after which it must be published. Please make sure that you submit this information PRIOR to the start of the process. It can’t do any harm to submit it again, if you are already in the selection process.

Peter Joffe is doing a great job on the SAMAA News, and he will routinely include news of the SIGs activity, provided of course he is supplied with information. Please make use of this opportunity to advertise your activities.

Entry forms for the Nats events that are scheduled for the early part of the year have been included in the next issue, but some would have missed the deadline. Please use your electronic means, or web pages to communicate this information. Get in touch with John Godwin if you want to use the SAMAA website as a vehicle.

Radio control frequencies
There is an Excel spreadsheet with this message that details the current state of frequencies available to us. If you are aware of anyone using illegal equipment, please let me know so that we can take the necessary steps to protect our interests. By the same token, if you are aware of radio control activity from an unregistered site, report this too.

SIG operation revisited
Despite the circular of 11th November 2004, the SAMAA office has received no minutes of past meetings from some of the SIGs. If there is to be complete transparency, it is imperative that you fulfil this minimum requirement. This can be e-mailed, faxed, or posted, entirely up to you. (A written monthly report to the SAMAA management committee, mentioning recent activities per region, proposed activities, development and transformation initiatives, minutes of your meetings, etc).

Best regards

Bob Skinner
Chairman: SAMAA
