Phone Verification System Note :- We encountered some problems with the new phone verification system during our first race from Carentan, due to some lines becoming blocked during the afternoon and early evening of the race.

Could we please ask all members using the new phone verification system to call through on the numbers provided below, leave your message which needs to be your section number, flying name, time of your first arrival and lastly the birds ring number and then please hang up. This system does not provide you with a verification number, so please do not hold on the line waiting for it.


Please note below the new phone verification numbers to be used for each section. These replace the phone numbers on the rear of the verification cards in the Official Handbook.

Alternatively you can also log in and use the on line verification service on the MNFC website.
