I think most of the UK regulars know that this year I am co-organising the BMFA Indoor Nats with John Minchell.  I have stepped into Graham Banham’s shoes and am desperately hoping I can do the job as well as he did.

The date this year is Sunday April 28th, so make a note in your diaries.  Venue is Wolverhampton University Sports Centre, Gorway Road, Walsall, WS1 3BD
 There are some cracking new Open models being built for this year so I’m really looking forwards to seeing them in action.

As last year there are classes for Open Rubber, Open electric/CO2, Kit Scale, Peanut and Pistachio.  Pre-entry is required for these classes and the entry form is available to download from the BMFA Website.  To save you going through the menus, here is a direct link:
   
https://bmfa.org/DesktopModules/Bring2mind/DMX/Download.aspx?Command=Core_Download&EntryId=2791&language=en-GB&PortalId=0&TabId=1555

As far as a trimming session on Saturday goes, John and I are currently looking at the best way to facilitate this, as the Sports centre has (like in 2017) been booked out all day for a Martial Arts event in the main hall.  By the time that has been cleared away, time will be getting on.  We really want to be able to give you a reasonably long session, but it may have to be later in the evening.  I would be interested to hear people’s thoughts on this.  How would you feel about having a later evening trimming session?

Please contact me directly if you need more information or have any questions – my contact details are on the entry form.

I’m pleased to announce that there will be a new trophy up for grabs at the Indoor Scale Nats this year.  It was agreed at the STC meeting on Saturday to present the Veron Truflite Trophy, in memory of Phil Smith, to the highest placed Veron Truflite model at the event.  Logically I would expect this to be won by a kit scale model, but I do remember Reg Boor doing pretty well in the Open rubber class with his very nice Messerschmitt Bf 109G, so who knows?

You still have over two months to go which is plenty of time to build one of Phil’s designs – who wouldn’t want to have this nice brass Tiger Moth on their mantelpiece?

Gents

I have good news, that after 6 months of negotiations I have received a licence for Indoor Flying to continue at RAF Shawbury.

This now means that there will be a couple of club dates which are just prior to the FF Indoor Nats at Walsall which you can use for trimming those masterpieces.
Club dates at Shawbury are confirmed as March 24th, April 14th and May 5th (which is of course too late fo the FF Nats).

However, as the Indoor RC nats were postponed on March 24th, they will now run on May 12th, so the club date the week before can be used for trimming and practice for those entering the Indoor RC Nats.

I hope that you have enough helpers this year?
I'm counting on Arsenal losing in the Europa Cup ... to avoid a fixture re-shuffle for their match at Leicester! Jayne will possibly travel with me then ... I'm not high in the pecking order!

Russ

No, we don't have enough helpers so far, as a couple of the regulars cannot make it this year.
I'll take this offline and send you an email.
