BMFA Free Flight and Power Nationals back on at RAF Barkston Heath in 2017

From the following BMFA Update:

https://www.bmfa.org/News/News-Page/ArticleID/2441/2017-Free-Flight-Nationls-Power-Nationals-at-RAF-Barkston-Heath

We are pleased to announce that arrangements to hold both the 2017 Free Flight Nationals and the 2017 Power Nationals at RAF Barkston Heath have been confirmed. The Free Flight Nationals will take place over the late May Bank Holiday weekend (27-29 May) and the Power Nationals will take place over the August Bank Holiday weekend (26-28 August).
The construction work which rendered the airfield unavailable to us last August for the 2016 Power Nationals has now been completed and the RAF have re-affirmed their long established and ongoing commitment to support our two Nationals wherever possible, subject to operational requirements.
We would like to express our gratitude to the Commandant of RAFC Cranwell and his team for their assistance and cooperation in facilitating our continued use of RAF Barkston Heath for 2017. Further details will be made available in the BMFA NEWS and on the BMFA website in due course.

The sad loss of our Honorable President - Peter Valentine


It is with a heavy heart and a deep sense of loss that I must report the passing of our honorable President "Peter Valentine" at 6am on Monday 2nd January 2017.
Those of you that knew Peter will know how tirelessly he worked for our club for many years where he held several Committee roles.
It is expected that Peter will be cremated as per his wishes and his ashes scattered at our flying site at Gumley.

God bless your soul Peter, a true friend to all at LMAC taken far too soon, Fly high.

Indoor Flying Dates for 2016 - Booked

The darker winter nights are fast approaching  with that in mind, I’ve booked six indoor sessions for the LMAC indoor flying between October 2016 to March 2017. The venue and price will all remain the same and the Sports Connexion have agreed to keep the £60 cost for the three and half hours the same. The provisional dates for your diaries are as follows:

• Sunday 9th October 2016 – 18:30-22:00
• Sunday 6th November 2016 – 18:30-22:00
• Sunday 15th January 2017 – 18:30-22:00
• Sunday 29th January 2017 – 18:30-22:00
• Sunday 26th February 2017 – 18:30-22:00
• Sunday 12th March 2017 – 18:30-22:00

Unfortunately December is rammed for bookings, so I’ve booked two sessions in January 2017 to compensate. All dates are within the large blue sports hall. I’m not going to bother with the Cricket Hall. If for whatever reason any of the sessions get cancelled (it’s always a risk and an agreement which I have in place with them), then we’ll have to cancel that given month. Unless I can get sufficient commitment that you want to fly in the Cricket hall. Experience has shown that Cricket Hall meetings are far less subscribed than those for the large sports hall; For obvious reasons!
Anyway, you have time to get preparing your indoor fleet. I’ll add the datesto Facebook, the LMAC calendar and send out via email. Keep any eye out for these and always check the various sources of info beforehand.
Enjoy the rest of the summer flying!
