General: Please ensure that you and your caller wear protective headgear (no-one allowed on the course without a hard hat / helmet). SAFETY FIRST – This is unfortunately not negotiable!

We would also like to invite any SAMAA member who have some sort of quickie 500 to come and join in the fun. I understood that there are actually quite a few Pattern guys with quickies, and would SAMPRA be very happy to have you attending this event!! (Stokkies – you planned to fly that weekend anyway….!).  

Please let me know by latest Thursday whether you will be attending, and which classes you will be flying. (Standard quickies,Hot quickies and / or Q40). This will make the registration process much quicker.
