Earlier in the year SLAMS decided to hold a fun fly event on the 22nd September. At the last club meeting it was decided to have 4 competitions these are:

  1. Climb and glide. 30 seconds to ascend as high as you can then motor or engine off and glide for as long as you can until landing.
  2. Limbo. Starting height 8’
  3. Dead stick spot landing.
  4. 2 minute flight-take off to landing. Time starts the moment your wheels leave the strip till you are firmly on the ground. Obviously no timers are allowed.

Members can fly only one aircraft for all events! Points will be awarded for each competition the competitor enters. If there are 15 competitors points will start from 15, max’ points for first, 14 for second etc.

There will be an individual competition prize of £10, and prizes for the most points overall, 1st 2nd and 3rd. Mark Barlow has very kindly offered to donate the prizes. Cash prizes from club funds.

A couple of disposable bar-b-ques will be available for members to use, so bring your own food and throw it on!

It is hoped that all members will join in this event. It is an event that you don’t have to be the best or more experienced pilot, it’s just to have fun and to be involved in your club.

Fingers crossed for good weather!
