The Belgian Ardenne Paragliding Open is a flatland competition spread over 5 weekends. We will be using the footlaunched hill takeoffs of the beautiful Ardennes in the south of Belgium and the north of France. The weekends are:
In case of bad weather, we will cancel the weekend on thursday or friday evening before the weekend.
There won't be retrieves or transport to take off organised by default (in case of a great weather announcement and big interest in the competition, this could change on a case by case base). Feel free to organise your own and share with others ;-).
No airspace infringement will be allowed during the competition, and we will provide you with correct OpenAir files.
Scoring will be done after the event, and offline. All participants will be required to send in their IGC track file via email before monday 20h00.
Selection and entry fee
Payment must be done by bank transfer to the federation:
IBAN: BE41 3100 9022 1810
BIC: BBRU BEBB
SWIFT code: BBRU BEBB 200
There will be no refunds in case of cancellations. If we have to cancel many or all of the weekends, we will try to give 2017 competitors a discount in 2018, but the majority of the costs does not depend strongly on the amount of tasks flown.
