Many of our scheduled competitions are currently in doubt due to difficulties with permmitted height approvals at the various clubs.
The issues are being very actively addressed by all concerned and the VPA is hopeful that the necessary permits will be forthcoming soon.
The competiton at Yarra Valley MAC, scheduled for Saturday, January 20, has been postponed indefinitely.
The good news is that the F3A competition at Nepean and the Classic at P&DARCS, both in February, are definitely confirmed as being on.
The VPA will advise any updates as soon as possible.
