Clubs thinking of holding a weekend Fly In, and I thought I would ask Is there any interest ?

Doncaster South Yorkshire.

We shall be putting all Covid measures in place, and if we hold one, we shall give details.

No A Cert required, be insured and have proof please, no flying fee and some camping available.

Dates not decided yet, just wanted to see if there's interest first.

Be aware of the new Covid 19 rules being applied in many Northern areas from midnight tonight.

I suspect it will make the 2 m social distancing rule ever more important as well as having contact details for all attending.

You did not actually say but I assume it is the DVMFC as before?

Hate to travel all that way to the wrong site!

It looks like there will be a considerable blow on Saturday (40 mph gusts!) although hopefully a bit calmer on Sunday.

Will have to see.

Thanks, John. I thought it was but it's been a few years since I last visited.

By the way, that was the day Dave Johnson flew the big Lancaster and lost a wheel during a touch and go surprise
