You can send or bring your payments to.
Would you be interested in going for an evening meal with your partner some time near Christmas?
If you would be interested please reply to the forum post to let us know before the end of June. If enough people are interested we will look to arrange something.
Urgent Help Required.
The mower needs some mainenance. We need a volunteer to help out. With the good weather we are only going to have 3-4 more weeks before the grass is too long to fly.
1. The mower needs a service. Oil, Filter, Cooling System.
2. Blades need to be sharpended, this requires the cutting boxes to be removed and the blades taken out. We can get them sharpened once they have been removed.
3. When rebuilding the cutting boxes several parts of the middle cutter need to be exchanged with our spare blades.
If you can help out please contact Mick Manning.
When removing the blades the need to be identified so that we get them sharpened for rotating in the correct direction.

Sunday 10th nov at 10:15 we will be presenting a poppy wreath for Remembrance Sunday at spanhoe airfield war memorial on the laxton rd, be nice to see a few club members there. Please remember there is to be no flying at the club site before 12pm on this date.
Then from 5pm on Sunday 10th nov we will be holding our annual bonfire and firework night. Keri is kindly going to make chilli and if you like bring a couple of buns and burgers, because no doubt the BBQ will be going on, should be lighting the fire about half 5 and the display shortly afterwards. Although the club is supplying fireworks it would be great if you fancied bringing a few more.
Date Corrected. The flying and static display is on the Saturday.
The club has been invited to put on a flying display at the Brigstock Beer Festival on Saturday the 21st September 2013.
The festival has been run since 2004 and raised money for local charities. The festival runs from the evening of the 19th September to Sunday the 22nd.
The club has been invited to put on a combination of flying display and static display on Saturday the 21st September. BMFA approval is in place to fly on the Cricket Club grounds. If you would like to help out and attend the event the please contact the Jason Bishop the Event Organiser.
To fly pilots will have to hold a B Certificate. A Certificate holders will only be able to fly at the event organiser and safety officers discretion.
