Hi all. As per title . We need fixed wing instructors to help with new members .
Now that the restrictions are being lifted its a bit of a struggle trying to get the "Club" side of things going again . It as if the pandemic caused the heels to fall off everything !
Now we are open again we have had a few enquiries from new members who need some help with the basics from set up to actual flying .You will need to be a competent flier, able to set up a basic buddy system or advise on suitable radio for teaching etc. If you not sure then we can help you .
Can any of you that are at a stage where you think you can help new fliers please
Contact either myself , Ade or Gary.
We hope to arrange a day at the field to have a meeting ( socially distanced and all covid precautions taken of course ) so that all instructors are working from the same set of rules .
I have received the sad news that Ken Denyer passed away a few days ago.
Ken was a good club member serving on the committee for many years and was always involved in club activities
He was until a few years ago a prolific builder ans
some of his builds were .......interesting ! We would spend hours trimming them etc but they always flew in the end .At one stage ken was the club supplier of foam wings and made a good job them especially replacements for Wot 4's and Acro-Wot wings. The hard part was getting him to take anything for making them . He was also our grounds man for many years , keeping the patch in good order end clearing the sheep mess into his late 70's. Yes , many of you wont remember the 100 plus sheep that we shared the field with .
His wife Win (Winifred) died a few months ago and Ken then went into a home . Sadly due to the pandemic none of us could visit him .
Ken will , I am sure be remembered and missed by all who new him for his impeccable integrity, sharp wit and quick no nonsense reply .
Ken Denyer .
Gone Flying forever.
I will post any other details as and when I get them.
On arrival text Martin your name and again when you leave for the track-and-trace system if its required.
Observe social distancing and wear a mask if you are near a group .
Please supply your own sanitiser etc
Toilet will remain closed until we can get it serviced and arrange a disinfectant spray .
In the unlikely event that the field becomes very busy keep well spread out and move your gear if asked to by a committee member
Please also be aware that the field is still very boggy in places .Test before driving on to the grass. Only drive along to the shed , this appears to be quite firm and check thoroughly before driving to the pits to unload . WE HAVE NO MEANS TO EXTRACT A STUCK CAR > Your are on your own if you get stuck
