In other news…

by Eric Li-Koo

A number of the core committee have had to stand down for personal reasons. We have temporarily back-filled these roles with volunteers from the current extended committee. The committee is now as follows (NC = no change)

Chairman: Thomas Greer (NC)
Treasurer: Richard Rowland
Secretary: Eric Li-Koo (NC)
Membership Secretary: Craig Leong
PR officer: Andrew Hyams

As per the other post, there are still a number of open positions to be filled if you would like to contribute towards the running of the association.

Lastly, the forum has been getting almost no useful traffic, so we have taken the decision to shut it down. If there’s anything in particular that you would like to keep then please grab it now, otherwise it will be decommissioned when we next get round to it.

The Facebook page will be our main point of contact from now onwards.

We need your help!

by Eric Li-Koo

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 secretary@bfpvra.org. Don’t forget to state which role you would like to help with!

Thanks,

The BFPVRA committee.

British Championship eligibility.

by Richard Rowland

To be eligible to participate in the British Championship on Oct 1st and 2nd 2016, you must be a BFPVRA member and have attended at least one of the Championship qualifying events.

 

The top 60 pilots based on their best qualifying scores will be invited to participate primarily, and priority given to the next in line if any can not attend.

 

Thank you.
