3 in 1 (the triathlon)

Family Day & BBQ – trial flights, food and chuckies

World Record Attempt 12:00 noon – same approach as last year, with safety foremost…about 30 minutes of mayhem

Hanky Planky Wacky Races – more group races played to Ron’s Rules. Very possibly with bonus points for your scorecard.

Visit the Information page.

Another cracking day. Even the weather perked up in the afternoon. 50 members and guests attended, 49 planned to take part in the World Record Attempt and 48 succeeded. Thank you all. Pictures of the day will be added to this linked page, which initially has just a few from the BMFA World Record Attempt at 12:00 noon.


1 July – 9 July 2023 inclusive

BMFA Around the World Record Attempt

Bonkers, but interesting idea to clock up the equivalent mileage of a trip around the world. Distance is aggregated from all flyers at all participating clubs in the UK during the week.

More information to follow…I wonder if Hanky Planky racers can score extra points for the competition?


2023 Hanky Planky Wacky Races

This is a season long competition. You can take part any time you are at the flying field and update your score. Arrange events between mates; call on Ron Gray to help; supplement your scorecard.
