Local procedures were updated compared to the previous events. Although the Pribina Cup competition will use the rules prescribed in FAI Section 3 Annex A except as detailed in the local procedures, these take precedence over Annex A in all cases where a subjected is mentioned here. If the local procedures are silent, Annex A will apply

I am very glad that, on behalf of all members of Aeroklub Nitra, I can invite you again to the Pribina Cup 2016 - International Easter Gliding Competition. The event is scheduled, as usually, during Easter holiday time and will be held at the Airport Nitra / Slovakia.
The Nitra venue is already well known to the most of you as established and a great place to do any aviation sport. All necessarily infrastructure, the airfield without significant obstacles, favourable outlanding options in its vicinity and within task area, on site camping and catering, big briefing area, glider and avionics repair facilities, lodging being close or directly at the airport, good route infrastructure with the brand new highway called PR1bina passing by, great landscape ranging from flatland to highest mountains and traditionally very good gliding weather should ensure that all of you coming should experience pleasant atmosphere and relaxed competition. Furthermore, Slovakia’s climate and the natural resources have made the country ideal for tourism and other adventure sports, including flying. However, all that would not be possible without all those people, who work hard so the event can happen. These are my fellow club members, tow-pilots, all those who take care of your accommodation, catering and your stay here, all of them are important for the success of our and we believe also yours event.
Country wide common interest in flying sport, particularly to gliding, is reflected by organising activities of the national aeroclub or local clubs both recently and in the past. Without listing all the events it is obvious that Slovakia is one of the most frequent destinations for the competition glider pilots during the recent years. These activities were complementary to the birth and the growth of the Pribina Cup to its current status as well established International Gliding Competition.
Without your support and the support of our partners and friends Nitra and Slovakia would not became famous in gliding sport and we would not be able to achieve our goal to organise an exciting and great but relaxed and especially safe event.
I hope that you have already several strong reasons to experience flying in Nitra again. All the team is looking forward meeting you in Nitra.
On behalf of all from the Pribina Team
