Rosendal 2008

I'd like to say that we spent many hours soaring on the Rosendal cliffs this weekend. I'd like to say it but I can't.
We drove down to Rosendal on Thursday. If you want a good place for food, OJs at the Total Petrol Station in Heilbron is worth a visit.
On Friday morning we made our way to the flying site. Kobus and his wife Charlene had been there the whole week getting things ready. Kobus had already flown every day.
On Friday though the wind blew obstinately from the north. Not good.
On saturday morning the wind was still from the north, and it was cold and overcast. We took the chicken run back to Jozi.
Let's hope next year will be better.

Here's the proposed guideline for Park Flyers. Your comments are important. Please send them either to Keith Nicolls of Bob Skinner.

Keith says, "...Please feel free to post the write-up, whether the comments come now or later does not matter, often the ideas put forward are useful and add value to the document.

Re the handling of, and setting up of park flying groups, it is a problem and right now I am in negotiations with two groups of park flyers and the local Municipality,to lease a site,and allow flying at certain times so as to fit in with other sporting groups.
Presently it seems as if it will work. Once this deal is complete,it could possibly be used by other groups trying to find a suitable site to fly. 
Will keep you informed.


Helicopter Judges clinic (NERF) -- Johan Sieling

We will be having a judges clinic for Class 1, 2 and 3 and will be held at NERF ( North Eastern Radio Flyers ) midrand on the 14th September ( Sunday ), as from 11:00 - 13:00. We will follow the same procedure as at the previous F3C clinic. I would like to encourage that all pilots and judges join us so that we can clear up any questions and learn from one-another.
If you have any queries please feel free to contact me.
