 All my planes are in the loft at home. however I picked this Flair Cub up for £16 at the annual general meeting of the Epsom Downs club over a year ago. It needed attention to the ailerons and the nose and cowling and the removal of the pilot that was a small scale Postman Pat plus his black and white cat. The two servos needed replacement , there was no fuel tank or engine. I have fitted an Enya SS 40 and have appointed PB as a test pilot and look forward to my next trip to Bartons Point when ever that might be/

Reminder.

As always Club paperwork has to be kept up to date, for the majority of you this year your subscription was waived. 

However the 'PAPERWORK' for your bpmfc renewal form for your club membership still requires submitting to the Club Secretary. secretarybpmfc@live.com (Only by email or by post NO house visit).

You can access the form by clicking on this link.

I am aware that some members have not renewed their bmfa as we are unable to fly due to Covid 19 restrictions. We are an affiliated club and therefore members are required to have a valid bmfa membership which you are now required to obtain from the bmfa yourself.

Field Update


 Hi all.

Flying at the Club.

As you are aware the club is within a tier 3 area, if you live within a tier 3 area you may fly at the field.

However the previous guidelines for our club and it's social distancing must be adhered to.

If you live within any other tier then you are not allowed to travel into a tier 3.

COVID-19 Update


BMFA,

Model Flying in the club environment

The Government has ordered that certain venues must close, including indoor and outdoor leisure and sporting facilities.  We therefore see little option for model flying clubs to continue operating during the period of lockdown and they should close.

Therefore, our advice is for members to stay at home and make an early start on their next masterpiece.

 

BMFA Organised events, contests and roadshows

The BMFA is advising that all events and contests scheduled to take place in the next 4 weeks must be cancelled at this time.   


Subject to a vote of Parliament, the Government will introduce further restrictions from Thursday 5th November until 2nd December (at the earliest), which limit the reasons why people can now leave their homes for at least the next four weeks (see https://www.gov.uk/guidance/new-national-restrictions-from-5-november).

For all club members - Please take note 

Hi All,
 
I hope this finds you all well in these difficult times.
 
I have been asked by the Chairman to inform you of the following new Covid updates at the field.
 
“All of the previous rules still apply as per social distancing. You must carry your own Sanitizer.
To be able to accommodate the new 6 persons in a group it would be best to have one group of 6
to the far right of the pits (where heli’s hover and engine running is done).  The second group to 
the far left of the pits (by car park)
Both ends are to ensure the 3 metre gap between each person in the pits.
We are not experiencing these numbers at the field so do not expect any problems”.
 
To comply with track and trace procedure you must email the Secretary on the day you are at the field
so she has a daily record of attendance. From today 15th September.
 
I have received notification from Phil Fearn that due to current new Covid rules the Swap meet on the 27th
September has had to be cancelled. 
 
Kind Regards
Jan Bruce (Secretary)
BPMFC
