GPS Triangle weekend September 26th & 27th

Post by SP250 »

Well due to the ongoing uncertainty over C19 and in consultation with John Greenfield we would like to get an accurate idea of how many people would come up to Sherlowe and participate in this weekend.
GPS training and a relaxed competition for Sport class and Light class models.

Please email me direct if you plan on attending, so I can get a handle on the numbers. j.minchell @ btinternet.com
Should we only get a handful, then the event will be cancelled, but we need to know.
Final go or no-go decision will be made in 2 weeks, but please don't leave it till then to email.

You can camp and with your own tent, caravan or motorhome you will need to be self sufficient, as distancing and safety precautions will be adhered to. There is a kitchen for boiling a kettle and a fridge, also ladies and gents toilets. But whether they can be used (as every time they would need to be cleaned/sanitised) will be decided on with the owner, should the event go ahead.

Just giving this a bump chaps as we need a couple more recruits to be sure of running the weekend.

You don't need to have your own GPS electronic gear as we can have 8 sets of loan gear for the weekend.
C19 precautions would prevent swapping between airframes and people though.
But it is 8 more people that can have a go and see it they like it before they spend out on the gear.
You need a 3 to 5 metre span electric launched model with enough room for a couple of oxo cube size bits of gear and a spare Rx channel.

Please email me if you intend to come - j.minchell @ btinternet.com
As per the above post you need to be self sufficient in your caravan, motorhome or tent, as there won't be a communal BBQ / food and passing beers around etc.
We have the use of a large aircraft hangar at Sherlowe, if the weather is inclement, so the ground school / training can still be held so bring a camping chair.

Due to the latest Coronavirus restrictions of max 6 people meeting indoors or outdoors and the modest number of confirmed attendees, Bernie, John and myself have taken the decision to cancel this event and to look to putting a couple of GPS weekends training and competitions on next year at Sherlowe.

Roll on 2021
