    RbR trace

    I also decided that I wouldn't rejoin until the decision to close the posting rights down was reversed, I rejoined this last weekend, but this may have had a bit to do with the fact that I needed a permit for the Mistral. Today was my first time back on this forum for quite some time as I'm enjoying the other forum and haven't really missed this one that much.

    John,
    I think we can agree to disagree. If the BMAA collapsed (unlikely) another body would rise to take its place, as happens in all walks of life. I am bored with all of this and just want to fly more this year :hop: . If and when the policy on the forum access is reversed I'll gladly re-join the BMAA and put my money where my mouth is :-)

    I'm glad that we cleared that up Ian.
    As to BMAA membership; disagreeing with the committee shouldn't be a reason to leave, quite the opposite. For people like me to be able to fly microlights in the UK we need the BMAA. The CAA would wipe us out, financially or legally as we really are regarded as the poor relatives at the feast. I couldn't afford to fly at a GA level and that's the minimum of how we would end up. You can't change the decisions from outside the BMAA, you have to be a member, and for such a piddly amount compared to the other expences involved in flying :-O

    Hi John,
    I did think you we're meaning me but I honestly wasn't bothered :-) . I am really struggling to justify my BMAA membership when I fundamentally disagree with the councils decision. Voting with my feet may help reverse this decision in some way.
    Who know, stranger things have happened, such as my winning the RBR Novice Silver category last year :rofl:

    there is still the RbR - the Cross Country Challenge is in addition not in replacement of :smilewinkgrin: Ah, OK. Misunderstood.
    It's instead of the USSR, innit.

    Is the XCchallenge going to get its own forum slot or share this (or none at all)?

    Anyway, according to MF it's going to be the BMAA Cross Country Challenge this year.

    Sounds good. Hope it works out well.

    Is that called "Cutting off your nose to spite your face?"

    Or just "an empty threat"

    Teddys and prams come to mind ;-)

    Neither John but you free to think what you like. I am struggling to see the benefit of BMAA membership:
    1. The permit. I am in a syndicate so not all of us need a BMAA membership.
    2. The magazine. EBay for a couple of pounds.
    3. The forum. Now using other forums
    4. The RBR. I'll do this year and not the next few years. This is the one thing I will miss, but hey ho.

    I too object to the policy. However as I am a member until the end of the year I fully plan on participating. After I don't renew I won't be able to enter so it will be my last for a while!!

    Always open to new ideas ) Live tracking with upload to a website was another but that was horrendously expensive.

    If everyone was enlightened enough to own an iPhone we could probably use the Find Friends app?

    This could be a good idea...

    I wonder how much the units would cost to buy or hire?
