NEW REGS RE COVID AND FLYING at MMFC
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 ?
HELLO <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< silence 💭
Swap-Meet Cancelled due to Covid RestrictionSorry for any disappointment and hope to reorganise next spring see you all then MMFC
Reminder about locking gates
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 .
The Port-A-Loo is back in action
Hello Everyone . Sorry but another moan
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 .
As per the previous update , the field will be open from this weekend provided the gov do not add any restriction that affect us .
IMPORTANT Covid 19 field rules PLEASE READ
If you feel at all unwell please don't come to the field or go home straight away
No toilet/portaloo is available during the present restrictions.
PS. Please be sensible and if field is crowded which is unlikely please do not hang around but go home and cone back later
Hello everyone . Just to let you know Our committee are discussing options for opening the field after the next Government review providing they don't close things down again.
Until then please be patient .
We want to go flying as well
The Medway Model Flying Club's flying field is to remain closed.Until next Government review.
PLEASE READ ON
Due to the complexity of the restrictions on gatherings of more than two people , your committee like many other club committees have made the hard decision to keep the field closed for another three weeks until the government reviews the situation on social distancing etc.
Please help us by sharing this with any club member you know.
Heading Picture (memories)
Our Flying field is still closed
Hi everyone . I visited the field yesterday for a security check as its near enough to come under exercise ! I was disappointed to see car track in the grass leading to the pit area . The tracks looked recent . So to whom it may concern the field is closed until further notice in line with government lock-down regs . Please don't bring our club into disrepute by ignoring the rules set out to help our already over stretched NHS.
Local model shops are still trading
No need to go crazy with boredom , you can still buy a kit or a supply of balsa or bits to keep amused while the lock down is in place .
I have just spoken to Justin at Rapid Rc , June at Weston Uk and Mark at Model world
COVID -19 NEW RESTRICTION ON MOVEMENT
As you are probably aware by now the government has increased its response to the Covid-19 threat to a near lock-down as of yesterday evening 23/3 .
The BMFA latest update IMO just confuses the issue as a simple "Stay at home unless its essential in line with Gov directive" would suffice.
I hope you all stay safe and well , that includes not breathing in too much balsa dust and cyano fumes , cough cough ,its different type of cough honest !;from your latest creation . Try and keep occupied as best you can and free plans can be found at ; www.outerzone.co.uk and probably more sites .
If you are in contact with any other members please inform them of the field closure .
Finally Anyone who has not paid their subs yet for 2020 can you please do so. A rejoining fee of £35 will be payable from the end of March If you have not contacted me . Despite the lock-down we still have to pay the lease on the field etc so please speak to me /e-mail me
I will for the duration of this lock-down accept PayPal for payment but do make sure you gift it to avoid paying PayPal fees . ring me for details
If you DO NOT intend to rejoin MMFC then please be good enough let me know and return your key.
Until we meet again keep safe and well .Please do keep in touch on here or via the clubs Forum at;
CLUB DINNER POSTPONEDIt is with regret that the Club Dinner to be held at the Tudor Rose on Friday 27th March is being postponed to a date in the future, to be arranged.
The effect of the Covid19 pandemic is growing and the government advice will soon be to cancel gatherings and the real fears of those amongst us who will be vulnerable to the effects of the disease means that we really have no alternative.
Let us hope that we, after having seeing this through, can look at a get-together later in the summer.
Stay well, everyone.

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 .

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 .
