Entry Fee Options - Information
For the first time in FAI Cat 1 World Championships there will be discount entry fee options ! This recognizes the reality of what actually happens at these events (many teams have their own transport and don't eat lunch packs !). This will save pilots and teams $$'s, provide a more efficient return to HQ, and be environmently friendly (less waste).
The tasks are generally one way down wind to goals up to 200kms away ! The organisation's transport cost is significant for this especially given that fuel costs have reached such high levels. In other events you pay for the whole transport and lunch service even if you don't use it, so making this optional saves everyone $$'s ! Experience from previous Manilla comps shows that individual team cars/buses are far more efficient and you don't have to wait around for goal to close and buses to fill up before heading home. The organisation can assist to connect small teams with others to arrange team transport - please contact Godfrey to be put on a special match-making list.
For full information as to what is included in the 2 entry fee options and Team Leader and Team Assistant fee's, please go to the Pilot Information page.
Entry Options (1 or 2) must be finalised by Jan 14th. You can change them on your rego form any time until then. If you take and pay for Option 2 now and wish to upgrade to Option 1 on Jan 14th you can pay the difference in cost then.
