Ludwig Steyn on the Bredasdorp Fly-in

Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 May

Bredasdorp / T Vos Fly-in.

Any airworthy RC plane is acceptable. Format will be as for a fly-in but we will try to have slots of interest to accommodate various interests, such as warbirds, aerobatics, turbines, glider tows, fun-fly's (maybe a couple of fun competitions?(I would love to see a mock-up pylon race. Theo. How about it? ). Emphasis on the fun! Some spot landings, Number of vertical rolls ( turbines?), etc and I can maybe get the shops to sponsor a few prizes. (How about it guys. You know were to contact me)

Only SAMAA members and normal SAMAA safety rules will apply.

Frequency control by peg on system and a peg board will be in attendance. (Philip 'Gestapo' Fourie will run the safety aspect for the weekend)

The AFB Bredasdorp has a strict environmental policy so no refuelling on the runway without a receptacle to catch overflow fuel. No fuel spills on the tarmac!

I believe that the local air force guys will offer boerie rolls and drinks for sale during the day.

Accommodation needs to be found in the surrounding area due to the security sensitivity of the base.

(I have a list of all accommodations in the area. Please contact me with your fax no for info)

Flying times: Saturday, 21 May 2005 09h00 to 17h00; Sunday 22 May 2005 09h00 to 15h00. Pilots briefing 08h45 on Saturday.

A R20 donation by each pilot for the Bredasdorp AFB R/C Flying Club development fund. This is to assist their development program of previously disadvantaged youngsters in the area.

Please pre-registered by sending an email or SMS to me with your SAMAA numbers and flying frequencies. This will give an idea of the numbers attending and also assist the Air Force with security arrangements.

Right of Admission is Reserved. This is a legal formality so we can ground people who misbehave.

(Who on earth will misbehave?)

Lets hear from all you guys.
