NEW REGS RE COVID AND FLYING AT MMFC

 NEW REGS RE COVID AND FLYING at MMFC

Firstly and most importantly If you feel unwell in any way DONT come to the flying field and risk spreading anything to your club mates . Stay away until you are sure that its not Covid or until you have isolated for the required time .

Members of MMFC please read and digest the e-mail that Ade will be sending around to you shortly. No details in this message for obvious reasons.
To operate within the new regulations we have prepared a risk assessment and are currently organising a method of track and trace for your visits to the field . This will involve texting or emailing one of our committee members , simply stating your Name and time you arrived and left the field . this will be kept for 21 day in accordance with the regs .
You will get all the details ,phone number and e-mail address in an e-mail shortly . Anyone NOT receiving them within the next couple of days then please contact me or one of the committee for further details . Please co-operate with this and help ensure that flying can continue at MMFC relatively easily without having to book a slot which we are trying to avoid if possible
As from today 14th Sept the toilet will be closed for weekdays and only available on weekends when a committee member will be available to make sure that the appropriate disinfecting has been done . Please bear with us on this as its difficult to get all members singing the same words .
By following the rules Ade will set out then we will be able to keep flying throughout the restrictions unless they are tightened even more then we will review and advise accordingly .
Thanks in advance for your co-operation in these difficult times.

Lock on the main gates AGAIN

 Hello everyone . Gate at the field was found not locked properly Yesterday morning .

Its really not difficult . Make sure the big silver  twin padlock adapter that allows Two Padlocks to be used for different keys is through the gate hasp and in Locked position THEN insert our padlock and lock it . Make sure that the adapter is still locked . Simple .

If anyone really cant work it out we can arrange tuition at one of our  Padlock Locking Classes  for them .


Why am I the only one using this forum ? does anyone read anything on here ?

Reminder about locking gates

Reminder about locking gates 





Just a reminder about locking the gate at flying field . 

If the double lock adapter  is too difficult for you to work out  then please ask and you will be given tuition ! If you are the last one out then its your responsibility to make sure that the gates are locked . Sorry about moaning AGAIN but gates found open on Tuesday morning. It may have been the solar farm maintenance people and they may have still been on site ; its difficult to see them apart from when they arrive or leave .

Just in case it was one of our members 
MAKE SURE THE SITE IS LOCKED UP IF YOU ARE THE LAST TO LEAVE

Committee

Double lock back on main gate

 Hi all. As per title the double lock is back on the main  gate . Please make sure that when you lock the gate it done using  the two lock adapter.and not just with our padlock . This is important as UK Power need access to the site . UK Power have replaced the twin-lock adapter that went missing during the Covid  lock-down .
I have fitted a chain to the adapter so that , hopefully it wont go missing again .

Port-a-Loo back in action

The Port-A-Loo is back in action


The port-a-loo has been serviced and is back in action after the covid  close down . 
There is a spray bottle of disinfectant to spray the flush handle with or any splashes ( gents get a bit closer --it not as long as you think 😉) No prizes for getting a bullseye when aiming .

There is also hand sanitiser supplied . 

Please only use the tissue supplied as the service man get a bit annoyed if tissues etc block his machine when servicing the toilet.

If you cant remember the lock combination then contact me or one of the committee .

Thanks

Cox engine paraphernalia.

Has anyone found  a box of Cox engine starting paraphernalia ?

Possibly left at our field . Box is an  old plastic ice cream box .

Any help pleas call me 

Phil

Anyone know who this belongs too !

Hello Everyone . Sorry but another moan 


The wreckage of a model,pictured below ,was recently found in our field dumped in the hedge near our shed , If anyone knows who the owner might be please have a chat with me the next time we meet. I have checked for any identification marks but cant find any . As you all know leaving any rubbish at the field is against club policy and the culprit if found will be dealt with by the committee. 


Thanks 

Phil

Make sure gates are locked if your the last to leave the field

Make sure you lock both gates if you are the last to leave the field .

Last Saturday afternoon the gates were found left unlocked and Sunday afternoon the padlock was found locked onto the second gate and NOT the bolt hasp making it easier to break open .

 IF YOU ARE THE LAST PERSON TO LEAVE THE FIELD

its you responsibility to make sure that the gates are locked properly .
