I'm not one to start thinking about Xmas straight after the summer holidays but... here is advanced notice of the scheduled dates for our indoor lightweight flying sessions, which do happen to span the year end. (The shock flier oriented sessions will continue on interleaving dates, please see BMFA News if interested.)

We expect to operate the same format as previous seasons but it all remains fairly informal. March and April dates will be scheduled once I can be sure of avoiding the nationals dates. I've avoided as many Derby County and West Brom home games as possible - any other team supporters please make yourselves known (anonymity will only partially be guaranteed).

Hope to see old faces and new, please pass the word around as you see fit.
Thanks
Nigel

Church Street, Town Centre, Alfreton DE55 7BD. That's North-East Derbyshire, 5 mins from M1/A38 junction.

Please circulate and invite anyone you think might have similar interests. All meetings will be 2-5.00pm, all are Saturdays, £10 per flyer, accompanied juniors and spectators free, BMFA insurance mandatory (new flyers please bring your membership card). Please circulate the information to anyone you know who might be interested. By all means bring stuff to sell if you wish. Modern leisure centre, LED lighting, nice café, good parking, it's even heated!

The following is my guidance on what is invited but please get in touch if you have an idea or question. Basically it is intended for free-flight with a concession to ultra-light RC flown in a suitable manner that is likely to be mixable with stick and tissue models. It is aimed at traditional aeromodelling without being shy of modern developments like foam or carbon. We will operate slots if necessary.

"Fixed wing, free-flight and ultra-light RC, no drones, helis or solid foam RTFs" 

So, more or less any free-flight balsa model, scale or otherwise should be ok, rubber, CO2 or brushed-electric. Free-flight models tend to be self-regulating with respect to weight or size due to the hall limits. The hall is 30m x 37m x 9.5m high.

For RC models, coil actuator models, DelTang based, Vapor boards, etc. in self-built models (from plan or kit) should be ok provided they are flown appropriately. The only pre-fabricated models likely to be acceptable are the Vapor range plus the Fireland/Ares range. Plantraco if anyone has any. Micro-Aces should be ok provided flown slowly (if that's possible).

What is not allowed:
•No brushless motors or separate servo models.
•No solid foam models. No Ember, 4-Sight, Extra.
•No RC rotors
These are well catered for at our other meetings where shockies have free reign (within time slots).

Thanks for those dates, Nigel. I too will try and make a few of them. The October one is potentially an early Nijmegen trimming session.
