This year the meet will be organized from 7th to 10th of July.
Traditionally the competition will be done in parallel with a similar event for trikes. This is the reason why the dates are fixed.
The environment is appropriate for beginner XC pilots also and for the general public interested in flight. We had great weather last year with good distance flights. This year we are waiting for a good weather but we have a plan B in case of bad wheather, We will go the beach of the lake Balaton. Since this is a meet organized mainly for trikes we have to respect their rules.
