2011 AAC Update #5
Howdy folks, a couple of things for you this week.
National Champs Update
CD/CJ: Your committee had a teleconference last week and much discussion centred on the upcoming Championships this Easter/ANZAC day at Parkes. Preparations are continuing with Glen Percy confirmed as Chief Judge (thanks Glen), and a couple of likely candidates having pressure applied to be Contest Director.
BOX Freq: Unfortunately CASA has had a change in view of their Regs and currently want all pilots to remain on CTAF. This means that when we fly in the Box, we are required to stay on CTAF not go to a discrete 'BOX' freq. This was enforced at the 2010 NSW Champs at Temora, and was tolerable due to Temora having its own CTAF freq, not the common 126.7 as for Parkes. We hope to resolve this issue sooner rather than later.
