Not long now until the first comp of the 2021 season!
For those who have not been before, the site, home of the Wimborne MAC, is located in the village of Cashmoor on the A354 between Salisbury and Blandford, The local pub, the Cashmoor Inn, postcode DT11 8DN, is 400m past the site entrance if travelling to the East from Salisbury. We plan to have a sign up in the layby, go through the gate and follow the track for around 600m and you will find the site.
Pilot’s briefing will be at 9am on the Saturday with flying starting immediately after. The site is available on the Friday for practice and I plan to be there from around 10am. Camping is available on the site for a £5 fee per pitch, which goes to the farmer.
We can fly IC until 8.30 pm and electric until dusk, on Sunday we can’t start flying until 10.30 due to local noise restrictions.
I am planning on running as many rounds of Known as we can fit in, 1 round of Unknown split over the 2 days, 2 classes each day and a freestyle. We have a full entry of 20, so numbers of rounds will depend on weather and everyone’s cooperation.
We are not going to book the pub for Saturday evening this year due to Covid restrictions and numbers, but we hope to do a BBQ on the Saturday evening.
Spectators are welcome, we expect to have several Club members visiting over the weekend.
Look forward to seeing everyone! Any questions, please post on the forum thread.
