Possible restriction of model flying during World Cup

Lionel Brink posted this note on the MGA list today.

Hi everyone,
Please be advised that the CAA have issued notice of airspace restrictions that could affect RC flying.  This appears to be limited to airspaces within 5 NM of the stadiums were 2010 WC matches are scheduled to be held.  The full document can be found on the CAA's web site.
From Bob Skinner: "SAMAA management is in consultation with CAA, RAASA, Aero Club, SAAF, and SAPS. It might not be as bad as the first reactions. We will issue a communique as soon as facts have been established. Two issues are important: air safety during WC period (50nm radius), and stadium safety during matches (5nm radius). Authorities have allowed for relaxation/exemption, especially for scheduled competitions.

More information to follow."
