Can the world keep turning, without some unelected people in there doing things ?

Be a very complicated expensive system without them.

What a sorry state of affairs.... [remainder of post deleted for brevity]

So, in summary.... angrycrying

Borrow your post Matty, not aimed at you.

Number 1.

Well I keep reading It's not about the money but the principle, so let's put the £16.50 to one side for now, add to that I don't have a crystal ball, so don't know 2010s fee.

Principles...Our hobbies at risk, our associations and clubs, choice is yours now, have a big tantrum and maybe do further damage to ourselves, or calm down and work together. My club and Associations are what I care about, add on the people who have a business interest and that's it for me, if I've to stump up money and jump through hoops to protect that, I will.

Number 2

I'll wait for them to give their twopenneth.

Number 3

Suspend flying looks to be adding enormous pressure on the club paying it's way, I don't have faith people will pay fees for no flying, I may be wrong but doubt it.

Number 4

Would have thought they'd already discussed.

No. 1 - I agree it's not about the money in the short term (i.e. 2020), but given the ridiculaous assumption that ~170k people will register I think we can be confident it can only go one way. The question is really how far and how fast. I personally think that (given the "greying" trending of traditional aeromodelling anyway) the imposition of a test and (say) £50 registration fee would be be enough to put off a pretty decent percentage of the existing members of the BMFA and SAA.

No. 2 - Agreed. I don't think we will see anything announced like that until the negotiations with the CAA have gone their full course, and even then it's pretty unlikely.

No. 3 - I agree suspending flying could have significant negative impct on clubs, and it probably isn't likely mass dissent would happen anyway based on only 6k of BMFA remembers responding to the consultation. Anyone who failed to register and continued flying with BMFA membership would certainly be a test case for the insurance company and courts should an accident occur.

No. 4 - Let's hope so, though I imagine it will be very difficult to win a case against the government based on the EASA proposals not being law yet and our comparatively meagre resources. We may all need to dip into our pockets to help if that's the case, but what effect might that itself have on BMFA membership? I do have sympathy for the national associations here, it is looking increasingly like they are negotiating with parties who have already decided what the outcome will be.

I don't know what 2010s fee will be, I assume like myself you pointed out 170,00 registering was hugely optimistic, Bmfa has already said the same, they'll not accept it till the numbers are in front of them, at least we're on record.

Quali was good, overtaking is possible could be a good race. Only 10pts Seb did me.
