The Bicester Regionals 2008

Pre-comp News

The most popular Regionals in Southern England (if the number of entries is anything to go by!) is with us again. The Bicester Regionals will run from Saturday 19th July to Sunday 27th July at Bicester Airfield, home to Windrushers Gliding Club. As usual, the competition has been over-subscribed (by January we had 80 entrants and ten reserves!).

However, all the reserves have now been offered places after a few dropouts. So one or two places have now become available for this popular Competition.

The Regionals will be organised by much the same team as in previous years, directed by Dickie Feakes, assisted by Max Kirschner who as usual will be task setting, with Sky-Web once again providing the web site.

The local rules are available via the menu under General Info.

The class split will be by handicap with 99 and below in the Sport Class, and 100 and above in the Open Class. There will be a special prize for the highest placed two seater with a handicap of 88 or lower in the Sport Class.

The comp prizes have been announced, and are the same for both classes.
Overall First gets a Cannon Powershot A590is 8.0 Megapixel camera, 4x optical zoom
Overall Second gets a copy of SeeYou (thanks to them for sponsoring this prize)
Overall third gets a bottle of Glen Morangie, finest Scottish Malt Whisky
The special two-seater prize will be a Sony MP3 player with built in radio.
So, get racing boys and girls, as these are excellent prizes.
