Club Notice - powered flying

Whoa!!! The first entry in months and it has to be to issue a word of warning to our members and visitors.... :)

As of end of September all flying at our field will be exclusively thermal. No form of powered flying will be allowed at all. This quote was posted on the MGA blog by Lionel:

"Members of GEMS (Greenfields Eastern Model Soarers) were informed on Saturday of a Falcon breeding / training site located next to the field. To prevent startling these highly strung birds, and with immediate affect, no powered flying (gas, IC, electric or electric assist gliders) is permitted from or around the field. This implies that only thermal RC soaring is permitted.

We have informed the landowner that we will notify all prospective pilots of this restriction & sincerely request that you comply with this. We will shortly consider erecting a signboard at the field informing members & visitors of this specific requirement.

Should you have any queries regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact Paul Carnall or myself.
