Michael Rausch of the German hoverclub has emailed with info on the Slovakian meeting (30June/ 1July) which is being prepared with help and funding from the German club. Still some work to do on permissions etc but the site is in a town called Namestovo on a lake called oravska priehadra in the north of Slovakia close to the Polish border. A long way to go but with some great tourism possibilities. Michael has sent this pic of the site, yes it is in the town!

You're positive about the 57 minutes?

Rotten date for me - can't do it. Really want to get to Krakow and this would have been an excuse to fly out. Lets hope it goes well for them and theres more.
