What a year we are having! It seems to be one thing after another. If you hadn’t heard the machinery container has been broken into. Most of the equipment we use at the field was taken but luckily the mower was not taken however it was damaged. Yes, it is a problem but we will battle on somehow. We will not be beaten!!!

As things are slowly getting back to normal we will be looking to restart things one at time. Things like committee meetings and also we will be looking at restarting club nights if they can be safely put on again.

We are hoping that we can do the Railway Show at the end of the year. I know members do like attending that one and helping out. We will keep you all informed as the weeks roll on. I think the Table Top Sale may happen next year but we have to wait and see how things go.

Safety time.

It’s been noticed that members are not using the tables at the front of the pits area to ready their planes for flight. It’s very important to use the tables, especially if you’re flying electric, in case you knock the throttle to full power. It could be very dangerous.   

Always remember to fly within the fly zone. Do not taxi in or out of the pits area. There are now notices in place to remind you not to overfly the pits area. Even though the footpath north of the field has been removed, people still walk along where it was so keep your eyes open for members of the public walking around. There are notices in place now to inform the walkers about us flying but they do still walk across the far east corner of the field. Also remember to fly according to the ANO guidelines. If you don’t know them look them up or ask. Also don’t forget to take your litter home (especially non-combustibles like tins, glass, Li-poly batteries and other metal objects) and bin them there. We’ve noticed that some members are still dumping these items at the field. Please take them home to dump them. Keep your field clean and tidy and remember wild life.    

There’s not much else to say this month but should have some news about stuff next time.

Stay safe
