South East Area upcoming Events

Dear BMFA Club/Member,

As things are starting to be opened up, the Area plan to run a few events over the coming months.

Please Note:- All events will be run in accordance with any Covid restrictions in place at the time of the Event.

Sunday 4th July South East Are Fun Fly Day

Come Along to the North Kent Nomads Club (Dartford) to enjoy a day of informal, light hearted Fun Fly Competition. Open to pilots of all skill levels, if you never tried Fun Fly before then this is a great introductory event. Competitions can be flown with any sports type model or Fun Fly design, electric or IC. (The first time I took part I used my flying wing, it was ok but not ideal and it also helps to know the difference between a loop and a roll in the water carrying event). A variety of popular Fun Fly competitions will run throughout the day. A BIG thanks to North Kent Nomads (http://www.nomadsmc.co.uk/) for hosting the event for the Area. Thank you also to Evolution Models (https://evolution-models.com/) who are sponsoring trophies. This year I will not be using my flying wing but one of the Evolution Models Fusions but I still have to remember to loop not roll in the water carrying event.

Start time is 10:00 AM

The event will be by Pre-Entry only.

Event Fee £5 per pilot on the day

For more details and to register please contact James Gordon on jamesrrg@hotmail.com or 07966 439835 during the evening please.
