Thread: Will we continue to get the magazine (RCM&E)?
02/04/2020 15:16:51
Posted by Ray Wood 4 on 02/04/2020 14:57:27:

Hi All,

Have a look on the Model Boats forum , same here I would think.

Regards Ray

No, not the same here Ray. I talk to Kevin daily of course and nothing has changed beyond his statement above. RCM&E continues, albeit a little smaller for the next few issues.

31/03/2020 11:57:52

Morning all. A reply from Kevin (Editor):

 

The answer is yes, RCM&E will continue to be published, unless printers are told to shut down. But then they were deemed essential during wartime, so fingers crossed they will remain so this time too. Even if that did happen there is now the option to carry on digitally, so unless things get really dire then we should be able to carry on, management willing.

The May issue has just gone to print and work has just started on the June issue. However, steps have already been taken to try to insulate MyTime Media from the worst effects of the crisis and in RCM&E’s case this means a change in pagination to 100 pages and one pull-out plan from June onwards. Publication frequency has also reverted back to 12 issues, so there will no longer be a Special issue later this year.

Kevin.

Thread: 2020 Events Cancelled
30/03/2020 16:19:25

Weston Park dates are now 16, 17 and 18th October 2020.

Message from Steve Bishop reads....

It is with regret that we are postponing Weston Park Model Airshow until October.

We have had many discussions with authorities from the CAA and Weston Park
to The World health organisation.

Health and Safety, and the wellbeing of all that visit our show is, and has always been our number 1 priority. We are now planning to run the show on the 16th,17th and 18th of October.
We will post updates on this website and our facebook page.
In the meantime please stay safe!

Thread: What Traders are still offering Mail Order? Services?
30/03/2020 14:11:36
Posted by Robin Colbourne on 30/03/2020 12:37:22:

I think this thread is an excellent idea. The shops that are still offering a mail order service are in many cases operating with a skeleton staff, so the last thing they need is us phoning up just to see if they are still open for this.

David Ashby, I appreciate you like to give priority to your regular advertisers, however, in these unique circumstances, by supporting and encouraging the UK hobby as a whole both customers and suppliers will benefit. The continued existence of UK suppliers both big and small can only be good for all of us in the long term.

Of course Robin, that's obvious and why I agreed to Steve's suggestion. wink

30/03/2020 10:36:20

That's ok Steve but we're always sensitive to our existing advertisers so a trader who isn't should resist the urge to highlight particular stock, offers, prices etc. These posts will be removed. Simply state whether trading is continuing online.

Please also resist the urge to discuss specific orders etc. 

It should be fairly obvious though. The presumption is that all traders are closed to footflow traffic and open for mail order. Simply checking their website or giving them a call will confirm this.

Incidentally, if a trader wants to post but isn't sure then just drop me a PM.

Hi folks, despite the virus outbreak your moderating team are fit and well, and happy to dispense forum warnings and expulsions for breach of guidelines (as we have already on this thread). It's still business as normal I'm afraid. smile

Thread: The Gov't, CAA, BMFA & UAV legislation thread

Folks, just a reminder that using ****** to hide poor language isn’t allowed on this forum. So doing gains the poster an immediate stage 1 warning. If you’re new or relatively new to the forum then please take the time to check the Code or Conduct.

The CAA/DOFT threads are generating a steady string of warnings and, in some cases, forum expulsions (for those already on a stage 1). We do this quietly in the background so don’t make the mistake of assuming this site is unmoderated just because you don’t see warnings given in public.

I doubt the story ends here and we've still to see many twists and turns in the saga, but the forum COC still stands and applies to all members, no matter how long they've been using this site. 

With thanks, David.

sorry Davidblush but it does make me boilwink

 

I know. I do envy some of the older flyers in our club. If they hadn't been told they'd just carry on flying regardless. Somehow news never seems to reach them.
