Just over two weeks!
After much discussion, it has been decided we go ahead with the Fireworks Fly In 3rd and 4th of November…BUT due to circumstances, the fireworks party will be on the FRIDAY night, 2nd Nov. BBQ lit, jacket spuds supplied, mushy peas, hot soup. Patio heaters will be used and the two braziers lit. Night flying and fireworks!
No charge for camping or flying, but please bring a LARGE firework (no selection boxes PLEASE….) to add to our own.
Arrival Friday and clear site by Monday.

If you have a key for the club hut, PLEASE make sure the lock is turned TWICE. This deadlocks it, we keep finding the lock only turned once.
Jets are ok at Langar again. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A WORKING FIRE EXTINGUISHER WITH YOU.

You may find prospective purchasers of the Airfield asking for access to our area to view.
Give them access by all means, but NEVER give out the lock code to anyone. Make sure the gate is locked at ALL times.
Here is an interesting story from a US guy who visited Seagull Models factory. Bit of an eye opener, far from the sweat shop impression most of us get of far eastern model suppliers, this is a very professional organisation! Click here
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE!
A Riding for Disabled school is now operating at the far corner of the hedge at the back of the South field. Models doing reversals etc have been drifting over this area (and the road) and this has to stop. Please end all southerly circuits halfway down the field AT LEAST.
This is especially for large, fast aerobats and turbine powered models. This map shows the new NO FLY ZONE. Drifting over that area will cause problems for our neighbours and eventually the club. There is an abundance of room further North and East.
If the problem continues, we will have no choice but to move the pilots box further to the North, which inconveniences everyone, so please take notice, and also make sure anyone else flying is aware.
