K7 in 1966.... A scene to be repeated in 2010... with a little bit of luck!

Could the bye law be got round by inventing a water speed record with a 'clause' - say 'the world waterspeed record for 40+ year old craft'?

The BBP choice was to go for the bye law change, rather than attempt to influence the RYA & UIM that there were sound reasons for creating a National or International record category for 40 year old jet hydroplanes.

My guess is that the RYA would have to protect themselves in this modern era. So they would seek all craft to meet modern safety standards, if there was to be a National Record attempt, under existing bye law six, on Coniston Water.

My view is that we are taking the best route for "Bluebird K7, WWSR Outright Record Holder - retired".

Filled-in the form. Have also posted a request on our Large Model Association Forum for members (1000) to do likewise.

There is a large affinity to this subject by aviation-minded people - just needs tapping ---------------!

hi

I've sent an e-mail to around 70 friends from the UK who i know will complete the survey.

They will also pass the e-mail on, so the true number should be around 200 people !!!

If we all done something similar then the word of mouth approach will become contagious and we could end up having an overwhelming amount of completed surveys that i hope will assist in having Bluebird make the biggest comeback ever !!!

Much like pyramid selling it does not take too many levels of passing the 'message' before all who will be positive to the proposal will be contacted. Well done to all who are spreading the details. We will need to have as many supporters by March 31st. as we can muster.

Someone has posted in the forum, or on the guestbook, that with a bit of computing knowledge the same computer can be used for completing mutiple questionnaires. The LDNPA have noted this posting (it will be deleted soon I hope) and have methods of 'weeding out' the duplications from the same PC.

PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS as our case may be diluted if 'EVIDENCE' is gathered by LDNPA that it is a widespread practice.

Guilty, I hold my hands up.
Sorry bout that, glad to see the post deleted.

And no worries about a mass of duplicate entries on LDNPA site on my behalf, I only did a couple as I thought it might look a bit dodgy with loads from the same IP address.
