The chaps from the Manx Model Flyers have been in touch to remind us about the Manx Model Meet 2007, which takes place between 29th June and July 10th inclusive. Modellers are invited to 'come abroad to the Isle of Man and enjoy flat field and slope flying at its best'. Power, glider, electric, free flight even – if it'll fly, then take it along.
Peg-on flying at the former WWII airbase at Jurby will include traditional sport, scale, electric, gliding and aero towing, plus power and electric pylon racing. The numerous Manx slopes lend themselves to the usual events - or just relaxing soaring.
BBQs, social events and contests will be provided to suit. Visitors can pre-register for camping and arrange to bring a caravan, campervan or tent - alternatively, the club can arrange accommodation.

for more information on what promises to be a very special gathering.
