Scale Modelling & Flying Talk Thursday 9th March 2017 7.30pm Batley RAFA Club
At the club meeting on Thursday 9th March 2017, at Batley RAFA club starting at 7.30pm, we have arranged a talk from Mike Sollitt on scale modelling and the various competitions / disciplines that are available. Mike is trying to promote scale modelling in the Northern area and show, that it is not as complex, as most people think. Many of the competitions, you can enter with a foamee type war bird and just fly it, in a scale manner. If you have an interest in scale modelling, please make an effort to come along and see what Mike has to say.

Easter Fun Fly Monday 17th April (Easter Monday)
The club are planning to hold an Easter Fun Fly on Easter Monday (17th April 2017).  After the talk by Mike Sollitt at the March Club meeting, we are considering making this event a scale / war bird fly in for a change, with some sort of low level scale flying competition. People will be able to fly any other type of aircraft too, but the day will have a scale theme.

DDMAC Membership Secretary.

AGM report

The 2016 KADMAC agm took place tonight (6th December) with no great surprises, committee reports sailed through without issue, followed buy 3 proposals.

1st proposal, club subscriptions where an increase of 10% was accepted unanimously. Subscriptions for 2017 to raise to £33 for Senior, £11 Junior and £11 Social Member.

2nd Proposal, was the adoption of disability access guidelines for members wishing to drive onto the moor to drop of their gear in an area close to the pits. The club returned this proposal back to the committee to look at again.

3rd Proposal, was to an amendment to the handbook Page 18 First Person View. FPV flying whether by goggles or by open screen may take place, on the condition that the flyer is supported by a competent person and that the aircraft being flown be kept within unadded line of site at all times. It is also recommend that the flying of an FPV aircraft does not take place alongside non FPV flying. This was accepted buy 4 vote for, 0 against.

On the no great surprises front, we once again saw young Oliver Firth take home a good number of the trophies, including the Stanley Parkington Trophy for best all-rounder.

Membership subscriptions were taken and new keys were issued to those who signed up on the night for another year, ready for the lock change over in February.
