I read this as I dont have to do the online stuff, having a BMFA B

taken from BMFA site, and I know LMA have issued similar info, so praps I am/will be on the data base twice cool

" where a UK model aircraft association already has an established and CAA reviewed ‘competency scheme’, members who hold an appropriate achievement certificate or award (such as the BMFA ‘A’ certificate) will also be exempt from having to undertake the online education training and test. "

Thanks for feedback peeps

sat here on the lizard listening to the weather trying to batter is way into our little rented cottage so doing some catchup

ta for cake Lindsay even though by time I got back to catering it had all mysteriously disappeared

the consensus seems to be to not change a lot if anything so roll on next year.

i will endeavour to get dates online earlier as this year I was very late but in my defence I had been a poorly person for some weeks prior to remembering to actually do something

so what about a bit earlier in Oct say the 4th or 11th do these clash with anything I need to factor in

Hello All

post event chatting to various people trying to workout why the attendance dropped dramatically this year, quite a few on list missed it, which meant that for the first time ever we made a loss on the day, Cheffy John and myself, but mainly john finances the food, not the club, this is the main reason for a list of peeps before hand so we can purchase the food accordingly, we went home this year with lots not eaten,

So the club sec asked me "is it the time of year" should we be looking at earlier date, now this would mean early in year ie May or June,

should it be a fly in rather than a scale one,

what about a warbirds scale day ...

all these have been suggested in past but i personally like the scale day as it is something a little different,

or is it time to call it a day do folks not want to travel so much anymore,

so thoughts please,

one last thing

my personal thanks to John the Cheff for his efforts without him doing the catering bit it would not happen,

thanks to Geoff for the gate duties,

Richard for the loan of the genny,

and once again thanks to all attendees hope you all had a good day

a quick heads up peeps

keep yer eye on here getting local weather updates from site (well nearby) from club sec and so far its not good the long range is giving a wet front moving right through us on sunday and those of you who know Ashbourne is/was the highest RAF base in England and is subject to some extremes of weather and a very local climate ,if i had to put a number on it its 50/50 currently the front is supposed to clear through by mid of next week (met say 10 days) which would put the clear if cooler weather just right for the 20th so all is not lost.

the day should pan out as follows whenever it happens.

gates open 8am manned until 10 am

kitchen opens for tea and butties

gates close (coded lock for day visitors 3 digit one code 109, the 4 digit one is club members)

flying commences following the briefest of briefings

continues all day

flying ceases when its to dark/cold/wet to see or do or 6 pm

go homelaugh


final decision by Friday evening


23/09/2019 19:07:42

Thread: Well this could get interesting
12/09/2019 15:13:16

on Tuesday on Victoria Derbyshire show (I think) there were two of these so called "protestors" sitting smirking whilst miss Derbyshire interviewed them along with passengers who should be flying out this weekend, I could only stand 5 mins before the two protestors got boring, one even stated that she could not actually fly a "drone" but was going to learn before Friday hmmm she was very good at droning on,

I decided a visit to the shed was in order before I threw something at my new telly box


Thread: New Model Show
12/09/2019 12:53:01

Hello one and all

just a very last min plug for a new show that is on this weekend darn sarf

This new event is on this weekend and seeing as the weather is set to be really good I thought a last min plug cant do any harm

where is it its here at Stow Maries WW1 aerodrome and museum well worth a look


go on here and see events for full details

but from a personal perspective I can say well worth a visit, the museum is growing every year with interactive displays and a WW1 simulator to have a play in, good facilities, food and drink with the added attraction for the first time a large scale model event ticket are available online
