Hi all. Just to confirm that the field is still waterlogged . No cars please in the field.
Also be aware that any foot traffic in the pit area will churn up[ the field as its extremely soft and muddy . Your help will be greatly appreciated  until the field dries out a bit .

Norman Jackson

Its My sad duty to inform you that Norman Jackson  (Ginge to his mates ) passed away on Sunday 2nd Feb 
Norman was a long time member of MMFC joining the club back in its early days . He was a regular flyer at the "Retired Flyers Afternoons " held every Wednesday at our Stickfast lane site . And attended most weekends with his Vintage style models . In latter years he had to give up flying due to poor eye-sight but always kept contact with the club. He regularly attended the monthly club meetings , hardly ever missing one and enjoyed a pint and a chat with his mates . He was a quiet and polite man and will be missed  .


Norman pictured here at one of our Christmas club meetings at the Scout hut at Rainham that some of you may remember.

Gone flying forever

As the pic says Due to reasons beyond our control the indoor meeting for March has had to be put back one week to Sunday the 15th of March
Hope to see all of our regulars and any newcomers 
on the 15th

February remains un-changed  on Sunday  9th.

To all MMFC Members .

If you have paid your Membership and BMFA  please ignore this message. If you have not renewed yet then READ ON.

Following a visit to our site last Sunday I noticed some members who had been flying and as yet have not paid their subs or BMFA fee . They left before I could speak to them . Looking through our list I see that their are a few members who have not paid subs or BMFA yet. While I understand that its an expensive time of year , no member can fly un-insured at our club or our indoor meetings .

Please do NOT fly any model at MMFC site , Indoor meeting or any other site until you have renewed your BMFA membership.

If you are having problems paying then please contact me to arrange payment of subs  but do not fly any model until you have paid the BMFA membership as you will not have any insurance .

Hello everyone . I hope you all had a merry Christmas and have a Happy new Year.

The field has had to be CLOSED TO CARS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE due to being waterlogged . Please park on the track or outside the gate on the hard standing in front of the hut .That is OUR winter car park.
Any member ignoring this request will have to get their own car out and re-instate the field

Walking to the pits will help with that Christmas/New year waistline :-)

hope to see you all at the indoor sessions on the 12th of Jan

Phil
ps Don't worry this isn't our field in the pic just a pic of what might /would happen if you drive on it.

Club Subs renewals for 2020

Hi All. We are now accepting renewals for 2020 .
As you are probably aware the subs have been increased for 2020 to £61 to cover ever increasing costs like rent etc
membership must be completed by the end of January.
If you are having difficulties paying subs etc then do give me a call. Club subs can be spread out but to fly lawfully and comply with your insurance the BNFA and CAA fee will have to be paid in January 2020 If you cant pay this then please contact me. so that  you dont loose your place in the club or asked to pay a re-joining fee .
You should all have received an renewal form via E-mail . We have introduced this to make it easier for our treasurer Martin and myself . The introduction of CAA registration and online payments (BARCS) has meant this form is needed . For 2020 we ask that you purchase your own CAA registration and the optional BMFA card/discount card via the BMFA as no facility has been included on the BMFA portal as yet to include payment for these together  with your BMFA renewal in a bulk payment system .Visit the BMFA homepage for details or call the BMFA on 0116 2440028 and pay by card . Alternatively you can visit your  BMFA membership portal .

Any problem with the Renewal form or CAA registration then give ADE or myself a call or e-mail us .
Regards

Phil
