I did not enter this year to give you a chance. I am regretting it. :twisted:
So enter, before I change my mind. :wink:

They are building a runway in the pans. Apparently it is near SOWA Pan's tar runway.
So the first challenge is to find the new runway. :shock:
Hi Jan

Do you have more information on exactly where the event will be? The organizers say 20nm north east from Khubu near Sua.

Are they building the 'village' near the saltworks as well?

Has anyone got the exact venue yet? We're all paid up and ready to go, not too sure where we are going though.

They have graded a new runway just south of Sua Pans - I think about 2nm away.

The ZU permits should come out later today or tomorrow.
