After a positive response and suggestions from members,  the committee are looking into getting club T Shirts/hats etc. Along with this we are asking members if they would like to forward suggestions for the design of a new club logo, to be used both as the official logo for MGMEC, and as a design on the clothing and merchandise. So come on, all you budding artists and designers, let’s see your ideas!

Hi everone!

 Just a brief message to all about your clubs forthcoming birthday. We are having another open day at the field, on the 14th July. Anyone who attended last year will know what a success that was, & were hoping to improve on that this year! We have some proper marquees in case of poor weather, BBQ facilities, (manned, I believe, so you don’t even have to cook your own!, plus hot drinks etc. there will also be a covered area for display models, so if anyone has any projects or models they want to show off, now is the time. Toilet facilities will be provided, and hopefully plenty of flying! Please give your club the support it deserves, & by all means invite your families to come along. Last year was a fantastic day (there are a few pics on the club website) & it is so nice to get everyone together for these things!. I will send more details as we progress nearer the date, but in the meantime, any questions or offers of help in any way can be directed to myself, Stuart, & Paul.

Best Regards

    Hello all.

  A message regarding our club’s anniversary celebration. We’ve decided to have a ‘celebration day’ for the club. This will be at the flying field, on Monday, 4th June (Bank holiday Monday)

   There will be BBQ’s, gazebo’s/marquee on site, as well as toilet facilities. Also we’re having a raffle for a complete new Arising Star plane, with all servo’s & a JEN47 engine, just add your receiver & fly! Tickets are just £1, available from Stuart in advance or on the day.

  As the club was first formed in 1945, maybe it would be nice to see some aircraft from that era. I’m sure lots if not all of you have a warbird somewhere! Even if you don’t want to fly, you’re welcome to bring your models, whether complete or not, for display to everyone. This is going to be a fantastic day for all members, families and friends, so please spread the word, and invite as many people as you like!

 Having checked the all important weather, MET office say that the beginning of the month may see the hottest temperatures of the year so far, and whilst it’s not a given, it certainly looks promising.

 Bear in mind anyone flying on the day must hold valid BMFA insurance and the models must be noise tested by MGMEC to 80db or below. Site will be open at 9am, Flying will commence from 10am till 6pm for i.c models, 10am till dusk for electric models. Obviously, there will be no admission charges, & any dogs must be kept on a lead at all times within the boundaries of the field. Bring your own BBQ food, we’ll supply the rest. Come on down, let’s make this a Diamond Jubilee to remember!

 Happy Landings
