Another GroundPrep Day

You’ve heard of GroundHog day right ? – well this was another GroundPrep day.

This time it was shuttering & spreading out 6 tons of gravel – that will form the sub-base.

Above: Keith warns of the danger of touching his shuttering…

Watch out – you don’t want to make him angry.
Steve – on the right here, appears unaware that Jim has buried his car keys…

Ground prep for the Clubhouse begins !

On a warm sunny day in February ! – we made a start on the ground prep for the new Clubhouse.

Keith marked out the area & we dug out the top layer of turf.   It was hard work !

Will directs, whilst Russ gets the job done…

Near the end now – we did get to do some flying afterwards. Thanks to all for your help – including Pedro who turned up with some cold beers !!

2018 AGM

Despite the weather, the 2018 AGM was well attended & there was plenty to be discussed – please see the Meeting Minutes for more information.

AGM – Sunday 23rd Sept, 2pm at the club

 The AGM is Sunday 23rd September, 2pm at the club (we’ll issue an agenda in due course) – we hope you can make it & please let me know if there’s anything you wish to raise.
Also, we have permission from the Farmer to camp again – that weekend Friday 21st – Sunday 23rd (we will clear up by mid-day on the Sunday so that there is plenty of room for everyone to park for the AGM). You are welcome to bring your tent, camper, caravan etc – or just turn up and fly/chat as usual.
There will be some night time flying & Stuart is bringing his barbeque, so bring some food with you.
Many thanks & I look forward to seeing you at the club soon.
