As the official FPV racing association for UK racers, we have to wear many hats (please see our about page for our complete mission statement) but doing so requires many heads.
We achieved a great many things in 2016 but we have much to improve upon for 2017 and beyond. We are now asking for your assistance, so that we can continue to be all that we can be for the UK FPV community.
First and foremost, we urge pilots to show your support for the sport and for what we are trying to achieve by renewing your memberships for 2017. We invested massively in equipment last year, all of which is now available to affiliated clubs for running their own events.
Secondly, we recognise that we need more volunteers to help us with our duties in order to fulfil the ambitions of the association, to the extent that we are now looking for volunteers to help us with:
- Events liaison – liaising with event organisers, supporting them with planning events and maintaining the events calendar
- Equipment manager – responding to equipment requests, managing the equipment itself
- Club liaison – supporting and encouraging the growth of new clubs, maintaining the club map
We are also always in need of contributions to the website, and ambassadors for our sport who can attend local events and represent the safe, clean, fun side of drones.
Some of these roles can be held by more than one person, to spread the workload. If you’re interested in giving something back to the sport and the community then please get in touch by replying here or via firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t forget to state which role you would like to help with!
The BFPVRA committee.
