Lines of Flight meeting 28th July.
We had a good turnout of members who voted in favour of two lines of
flight with the North West / North East option polling 33 votes and
was set for 3 years. The runner up was the North West / South East
option polling 25 votes. Obviously the North West option starting at
Stirling North, Pimba, etc, overall is the most popular line and race
points for both lines will now be set by the COM. All Clubs are
encouraged to provide input into the new 2021 race program through
their Delegate. Programs submitted from individuals will not be
accepted.
Thanks
