The following points were raised;
AMPRA has always been a minimum of a 2 day event with the Monday available due to bad weather.
In 2006 there were not enough entries in Q500 to make it viable. Running QM in conjunction with Q500 made the Q500 worth running.
In team selection years, there would often be too many entries to run Q500 in with FA1 and F400.
Glenn advised that the technical subcommittee had been asked to follow this up with the State representatives. Although there was not much feedback the general consensus was to make this rules change. This would be presented at the next MAAA rules conference.
Motion: Until such time as the Rules can be changed at an MAAA rules conference, future AMPRA championships will be run to the USA QM40 fuselage dimensions.
Moved; Terry O’Connor, Seconded; Jason Sagaidak (20 for, 0 against - Passed)
1. Motion: As of 1st Jan 2008, all FA1 Australian team selection events are to be run using the new FAI venturi dimension rules.
Moved; Terry O’Connor, Seconded; Nerida Matthews (13 for, 0 against - Passed)
Meeting closed at 9:30pm.
