FOR the first time in many years the Agenda for the AGM of the Irish National Flying Club includes proposals to change some race points including the venue for the Blue Riband Kings Cup.

When changes like this are included for debate and voting it usually means a full attendance. D & H Kirkpatrick from Cullybackey has proposed change.
