DATED 4 MARCH 2002

Definitive List. The definitive BGA list can be accessed through a link from the BGA web site: http://www.gliding.co.uk..

The list is held at: http://www.newportpeace.co.uk/turningpoints.htm and can be accessed directly through this web reference.

This amendment list - presents all the geographical points without grouping them regionally or into sites.

Subsequent additions and corrections. After this first amendment for the year, no fundamental changes will be made to existing points (such as to the exact position), although small corrections may be made to items such as road numbers or descriptions. Additional points may be added if there is a good gliding reason for adding them during the year.

PART 1 - IMPORTANT CHANGES

Important factual changes including corrections or changes of grid refs and deletion of points.:

BOO - BOOKER AIRFIELD. At club request, the exact point is changed from the NW to the SW corner of the airfield where the airfield perimeter joins the B482.

Reason, this is the origin of the two finish lines that are generally used (it is also a better defined point both on the map and on the ground). The exact point can be clearly identified on the 1:50,000 map.

Change to BGA List Data: Exact point to be "SW Corner/B482", grid 482.12 190.63 and lat/long to 51 36.512N 000 48.931W

PART 2 - MINOR CHANGES

Where descriptions, road numbers or layouts have changed, but with no change to grid references.

Nil. Factual corrections invited for future amendments.
