The BGA 2018 Turnpoint database is now available. Lots of quite significant changes. See here for a full list of amendments http://www.newportpeace.co.uk/waypoints/97al21.htm
The best way to obtain the TP list suitably formatted for your particular device is via the “TPSelect” program. It will already be on your computer if you downloaded last years TP List, but if this is your maiden year, then Google “TPSelect” and follow your nose!

Aim Higher at the Mynd 7-11 May. When you fly Cross Country, the number of times that all the necessary “ducks” (the weather, your availability, glider availability) line up over a season can be scarily small, so you need to make the most of every opportunity. Proper training will enable you to capitalise on those opportunities. Aim Higher is the training opportunity that no (budding) XC pilot should miss – and it’s here at the Mynd, 7-11 May. Call the office and book a place!
