Percy on Money and Control Line Flying

Hi to all those who fly control line or who would like to fly.

Before I get to the money part please note that May 19 is a Barnstormers club flying day for the control line section.

Flying starts at 10 and will end late. As usual on club flying days a braai fire will be provided, bring your meat, eats and cold drinks and join us.

We especially invite juniors, those who would like to try and those who used to fly control line to join us for some fun on this day, 19 May.

Now the money part.

The Control Line SIG has received an anonymous donation of R3,200. The donation states that R2,200 must be presented to the juniors (defined as any one 18 years or younger) that fly at the next Control Line Nats. The donor recommends that the money be awarded as R1,000 for first place, R600 for second, R400 for third and R200 for fourth place but will consider alternative suggestions from the SIG Committee.

The Nats will be held during the school holidays in April next year, possibly at Barnstormers. This should help those who has to travel far so that they do not need to miss any school days.

The SIG will arrange accommodation for those who need it.

If you will be 18 years or younger (e.g. not yet 19) in April 2008 you can earn money by starting to practise your control line skills now.

Should you know of someone who may qualify for the prize money by April next year , please forward this to them.

If you need help with models, engines, lines or anything else related to Control Line contact Keith Renecle at 083 415 1409 or Percy Attfield at 082 556 9147.

Start your control line career at the Barnstormers open day May 19.

The other R1,000 is to go towards the expenses incurred by Keith Renecle during his overseas trip to lead a Control Line Aerobatics judges workshop during June.
