The entry fee for the Regionals will be just £170, the best value of any competition on the calendar. There will also be a limited number of Junior places available at half price £85. So Juniors don't delay, get your name on the list in the Lasham Office as soon as you can.
The competition will be run by the same experienced team Lasham member, Rob Jarvis directing, Deputy Director, Graham Garnett, two Task Setters Chris Sterritt and Mark Davenport, Colin Rule - airspace. The highly regarded Hugh Brookes has agreed to come to Lasham to do the meteorology for the competition.
Please be prepared to be asked for a £50 deposit, this is returnable if you need to withdraw your name from the list at any time.
If you have any questions or enquires please do ask at the Lasham office or feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and if i can help, I will.
See you on the grid!
