BBQ is back on this Thursday, 18th July
Extraordinary General Meeting
Following the sale of Langar Airfield to Brian Wells, and the leasing of the runway we use to Thatchams for experimental autonomous car testing, we have had to renegotiate our presence on the airfield. These negotiations are (almost) concluded, so in order to end the crazy rumours flying around, we have booked Calverton WMC for 8.00pm on Wednesday 31st of July to explain what is going on, to listen to any ideas members may have, and any concerns. Your Committee has been working hard to gain us a good result, and we will be putting on a presentation of the deal we have obtained. After fifty years of flying from Langar, and 37 years of being on the end of the 01 runway, this is a big event for the club, and I hope all who can make it to this meeting do their utmost. Your input is important, and opinions and ideas and concerns will be listened to.
Please try to attend.
Bob Thompson, (on behalf of the Committee)

A fantastic weekend was had by all who came to BMFA Buckminster.
The club booked a Friday and Saturday fly-in at BMFA Buckminster on 12-13 July.
Free to Langar club members, there was a Midland Area Flyin on the Sunday to which we were invited.
This was a cracking event at a fabulous venue, with close cropped grass and all facilities. We camped from Thursday evening until Monday morning. Also a good number of club members popped down for days. Fabulous wildlife, with Red Kites, Buzzards and Kestrels flying around. Next year is already booked!
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. MAKE SURE THE GATE LOCK IS SECURE!!!! Also, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE clean up before you leave and put tops on coffee jars etc.
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.
