Sids Task Week
2019: June 22nd to 29th June (8 Days)
For 2019 my Task Week will be along the usual lines with Tasks set for Pundit and Intermediate classes – this years dates are to avoid the RIAT and Fanborough shows. plus ‘Enterprise’.
Scoring will be by the Nat Ladder system, as this doesn’t over-penalise someone for doing an exceptionally enterprising task or for an achievement on a ‘non contest day’ – in these circumstances, anything other than my set task will be scored as undeclared.
The intention is to set tasks that the majority can get round, allowing for the range of experience and performance – I will not set a formal task if it is likely to result in a high proportion of landouts.
On a good day, ‘A’ class will be set 500k. ‘B’ 300k if reasonably straightforward.
Given sufficient demand, I will also set ‘C’ Class tasks for aspiring Silver C pilots – contact the CFI fo details
I will also have the ‘Club’ Nimbus 3DT available all week, so let me know if you are interested in accompanying me from the back seat..! (This also applies to ‘C’ Class entrants)
Launching will be by winch or aerotow
There will be no launch priority given to Task Week entrants beyond that normally covered by the Weekend Grid Rota. A formally arranged crew is not essential – we all help each other and this has worked very well in the past.
If visiting, there are on-site catering facilities and accommodation (book through Club Office) and plenty of room for caravan or camping (no fee), but the Club may require a weekly membership fee as exists at the time.
Please apply directly to me including the following details – entry limited to first 20 applicants:
Pilots Name(s), Glider type, Glider Registration, Club (if non-local), E-mail address for correspondance, Mobile number (for use during the week), £15 entry fee (Cheques payable to ‘I. Smith’)
