UKAP Meeting 07/07/07

So the first National UKAP meeting will take place on July the 7th and 8th around Llangollan and hosted by the Clwyd Soaring Association:

Flying with the club will take place on the Sunday with Saturday for traveling and meeting up with a BBQ in the evening at the campsite. BMFA membership or insurance will be required. No IC Power.

Dave has very kindly agreed to allow me to post planning and updates for the event over here, postings on the main forum seem to get knocked off the front page very quickly and I think some of us may not be getting information or updates.


Those showing interest so far

Grahame ‘Gray’
David ‘Hogster’
Ian ‘Londoner100’
Adam ‘Ginger Adam’
Gary ‘Gary Mortimer’
Alex ‘Alex290684’
Richard ‘Bearded Flyer’
Andrew ‘Swanlander’
Paul ‘English Electric’
Terry ‘Chargenut
Mark Jayne
Patrick 'Pjblink'
Andy 'Badllarma' The Video Guy

The campsite has reserved 12 places on the 7th & 8th.

Update added 25 June

The club operates a Peg On system.
Could all flyers bring a peg with their Name and Channel number on. I will bring some with me if anyone forgets!

Update added 29th June

Here is the meeting point for Sunday 8th July between 10 & 11am. The Ponderosa Café is North of Llangollan and up the Horseshoe Pass.
Windows Live Local Link:

Café web site: It could be a nice place for all the happy campers to have breakfast!

Could all those traveling in on Sunday please let me know. I will post a mobile number just before the weekend.

Just to say that I'll be up on the Sunday. Looks like I'll be working on the Saturday, so it spoils things a little for me but I'm aiming to be up EARLY on the Sunday.

Till then,


P.S. With Andy filming the event also, I think its going to be one heck of a shoot.

I would like to know one thing. Is there anybody who's a little camera shy, and who doesn't like been filmed. Its a lot easier to know before hand. Being filmed isn't everybody's cup of tea (which is fair enough).

Hey there Andy,

It should be great. My two main passions, photography and RC planes, and I get a day to enjoy them both
