Wacky Combat
Next event Friday 28 June 2024 – evening combat, 6pm onwards

Again, this will be ‘collective sessions’ with teams competing for the honours, assuming you can keep your eye on which aircraft is yours. The event will be accompanied by a BBQ, courtesy of Ron Spencer – bring food to cook and share, or pay as you go.

Saturday 15 June 2024 – F3A Competition

Knettishall is booked out all day to the UKF3A guys.

  • BMFC Club members are more than welcome to enter for a small fee and a lot of experience
  • It would also be useful for a few to step forward and provide club knowledge/support/spotting – be useful, enjoy the day, gain some knowledge and get a free BBQ
  • You may also attend just for the fun of it without contributing support. You still get the enjoyment and insight…but the BBQ will cost you. Please give Peter Jenkins forewarning if you intend to visit so that he can adjust catering
  • It may be possible to fly whilst the competitors pause for lunch
  • Usual access rules, enabling competition flying to be continuous and without cars passing across the flight line

 

 

Friday 28 June 2024 – Evening Wacky Combat from 6pm

Wacky Combat, 2nd event from 6pm to 10pm.

  • Team competitions
  • BBQ by Ron Spencer – bring food to share or pay as you go
  • Only a Wacky Combat foamie is worth the risk involved

Great conditions; good turnout; excellent company; superb BBQ; new Club Hut to admire; great range of flying – what’s not to like. I’m looking forward to the next one. Pictures are available from the menu, or click here.
