"XContest XCamp 2010" has the most open and simple format and rules possible. It´s all about free flying XC without stress, in the way you like! XCamp 2010 is moving from rough alpine conditions to the beautiful central Italy. Monti di Matese are one of the best and most interesting XC areas in Italy (Italian PG championship 2008, PWC event this year) with great hospitality of locals. The area offers a huge variability of flying directions without need to fly along one main ridge.
Local conditions in the end of summer are usually very consistent with huge distance-potential, but suitable for most of recreational pilots which are not familiar with events in Alps in the strongest season.
Good bus connection between Napoli airport and San Potito for pilots who wish to come by airplane.
