June club night and barbecue at the field

posted in: Club | 0

Meeting has been moved as the weather for tomorrow is not looking good at all. It will now be Wednesday week 19th June when forecast is much better.

As usual our examiners will be on hand to help with any of the tests for the BMFA achievement scheme. If you actually want to take a test please advise Bob beforehand so he can make sure that he has the appropriate forms.

Work Party at the field to clear weeds in the lane

Thank you to the small squad that turned up to the work party today. Cleared an amazing amount in just a couple of hours. It was quite windy but we did not get rained on. Two of the work party are currently receiving cancer treatment, one has recently had major surgery on a wrist to fuse it because of pain and another is awaiting hip surgery.

Lane is at least a metre wider in places now.

Congratulations to Bob on the following achievements in the BMFA Scheme

  • Chief Instructor Fixed Wing
  • Chief Examiner Fixed Wing
  • Chief Instructor Helicopter                  
  • Chief Examiner Helicopter

In case you are not sure what a Chief examiners function is, I downloaded the following from the BMFA document “Guidance For Chief Examiners”

The job of a Chief Examiner is to “assess applicants for the post of Club Examiner and to promote and maintain the standards of the R/C Power Achievement Scheme by example and by visiting clubs who require their services”.
