Nats info/updates

Postby ash » Mon Oct 15, 2012 12:50 pm

We could use a fully detailed resource covering everything prospective Nats entrants or spectators might need to know.

I'll post things here as I find them and it would be good if organisers, CDs, locals and anyone else with relevant info would do the same.

First and most obvious, MFNZ Nats page: http://www.modelflyingnz.org/nats.htm

Secondly, the online entry page: http://www.modelflyingnz.org/nat-reg-2013.htm

Previous Nats results: http://www.modelflyingnz.org/previousnats.htm

Here's a shareable/editable Map of Nats places: http://goo.gl/maps/DJ1ni

Other things we could cover here:

  • Dates and times of key activities - registration, rally, prizegiving etc
  • Ferry info
  • Accommodation info
  • Media resources
  • Spectator resources
  • New MFNZ member recruitment resources
  • Visitor advice from locals

Please post anything useful you can think of or send it to me and I'll post it: ashcustomworks@gmail.com

Email Barry Lennox for discount details. It's a very worthwhile discount!

Is the rally day confirmed at CMAC? Perhaps the worst place to fly ever!

Update

• The trophies have now been received
• The flying fields have been finalised. We have obtained another very good field close to the Darfield airfield that will be used for the Rally day and Pylon, and for any other practice when it's not in official use.
• This means ONE PEGBOARD for these two fields. I am hopeful that most will use 2.4 GHz gear, thus reducing the need to travel to/from the pegboard
• The grass has been cut once, and will get another trim nearer the time, although there is little growth right now.
• Canterbury is very hot and is expected to stay that way in general. So NO DTs. And bring decent hats and sun-cream.
• Remember the last payment day to qualify for the discount is Dec 21.
• The domestic facilties are well-equipped, clean and tidy. However, there are no laundry facilities.
• We will not be providing WiFi as the cost is outrageous for a short-term connection.
• There are 230vac outlets for campervans, etc (both 10A Aus/NZ and 32A Reyrolle outlets) but they are limited, it would pay to bring extension cords, and not rely on using too much power. Lights, radios, TVs and fridges will be fine, 15 x electric jugs and toasters will not be!
