International Birdman 2017
Bognor Birdman 2017 could be the biggest ever, and let's hope the local Arun District council do not try and wiggle out of staging the event, as they have done in recent yeasr simply handing the event on a platter to Worthing - the excuse - ludicrous PC elf and safety issues. As the popularity of the event has spread, more people want to come and watch and see who will be the crowned best International Birdman 2017. Of course, everyone who takes part will have fun, and as the cliché goes, everyone will be a winner at the International Birdman 2017 event. The day will as always be popular for the spectators, the competitors, their friends and families. Maybe if the council get their act together they could stage a successful Birdman event, but don't hold your breath. They seem to forget that Bognor is more famous for its Birdman competition than it is for anything else - including the local Butlins.
Bognor Birdman Competition
If you are considering being a competitor, please bear in mind it isn't really a competition in the normal sense of the word. Sure there will be a winner, so it is a competition, but very few of the people who take part are in with a chance of winning the event. Most people taking part in the Bognor Birdman competition are well meaning folks, trying to do their bit for charirty, and have no intention of winning the competition. They are doing it primarily for fun. That is not to say that people taking part are not competitive, it's more that they are fun loving nutters.
