Jet Newsletter 24 Feb. 2005 -- Paula Denysschen



Due to some unforeseen circumstances a problem arose in confirming the use of Zwartkops Air Force Base. The present base commander has only been in charge of the base from the first week in February 2005. The acting commander that was there for December 2004 until Januaury 2005, as well as the outgoing commander passed the application backwards and forwards amongst themselves and neither was interested in filling out the necessary application forms to forward to AFB Waterkloof for approval. Our application was sent through in October last year. The new commander has indicated that he is not familiar with the procedures and that there is not enough time left to obtain permission from Waterkloof. To add to it all the officer commanding Waterkloof who is the one to give approval is also a new person in charge. So it seems we have to start all over again to build a relationship with the officials from the Museum.

The Masters will still take place on the same weekend that it was originally planned for. The only change will be the venue.

Saturday 5th March
Static judging will take place at X-Tream RC Academy followed by flying for F4C as well as Stand Off Scale. The Saturday evening braai will be held in the Lapa at X-Tream.
Sunday 6th March will be for flying of all the Jet classes this will take place at O.D.I.


The SA Nationals that was to be held from 25th to 28th of March will possibly be moved to a new venue. A few possibilities are being looked into and all will be notified in due course. A second option is to cancel the Nationals and re schedule it for a later date in the year once we know what is happening with Zwartkops.
