 CARRIER REPLACEMENT NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

at the SAM35 Octoberfest

BCD, Class 1 but NO TRAINING (not enough deck time available!)

Many other C/L, R/C & F/F disciplines

BMFA National Centre at Buckminster Lodge, near Sewstern, NG33 5RW; 10m south of Grantham, Lincs.

CD Andy Housden 0208 541 0186/07551 924220.

This change is due to the cancellation earlier this year of the expected BMFA National Championships at RAF Barkston Heath over August Bank Holiday. The BMFA made the eventual decision to allow individual disciplines to choose their own dates and venues for their separate national championships, and this place & date is deemed the best compromise for Carrier’s particular requirements.

Andy Housden will contact all flyers individually to discuss entries – please ignore all BMFA-issued entry forms and last-entry dates.

Contact Andy at any time if ANY of this worries you!
