Large Scale, Scale and Pylon Nats -- Zane Mannell

Hi All

As some of you might be aware, SAMAA magazine, RMAC will be hosting a combined Nationals for Large Scale, Scale and Pylon racing from 20 - 24 March 2008.

Unfortunately a gremlin got into the "Entry Form" changing the date to 21 instead of 20 March 2008. The pilots briefing will be held on Wednesday evening and the banquet on Saturday night.

We are waiting for the changed entry form and then I will change the present one on RMAC's website - Oom Bob said we should have it tomorrow. For more information you can contact the SIG chairman directly, Gavin Walton - Large Scale, Russel van der Westhuisen - Pylon racing and "Sir" Koos Pretorius for scale. There will also be an entry form in the next SAMAA magazine but the starting date is INCORRECT.

I will be sending the entry form to all the clubs I can as soon as I get the new one from Bob.

Sungazer Scale Glider weekend at Volkrust 12 /13 April 2008

On behalf of the MGA, Mike May has organized a slope weekend over 12 / 13 April at Volksrust for Scale Gliders.
The event is open to all pilots rated solo by the SAMAA or considered as such by their clubs.
There will be no entry fee but information is needed to qualify for some sponsored handouts and to help planning:

Pilot's name
SAMAA number
Glider type and span
Shirt size.

The entry list as at mid January gives an indication of the interest shown in this event which could well become an annual affair.
