Dear Members we are very pleased to say that our flying site at Pembrey Race Circuit is now open for us to return flying.
The gate is the same code as before, if you have forgotten the gate code please contact Mike for the number.
Please note that there will be Covid-19 guidelines in the cabin available once they have been compiled and posted on the noticeboard there.
Also, if any member wishes to fly please make an effort to begin tidying the site runway etc, as this is in desperate need of attention for any flying to commence.
We hope to have our first meeting of this year in the month of July, further details will be posted in the near future as and when we fix a date and venue for this.
Many thanks for all the effort from our members attending Upland Arms Flying Site on Tuesday 25th May for carrying on with the completion of the new shed.
Christian and Mike

We would like to have a site meeting at the new flying site, Upland Arms Farm on Sunday 17th April to hopefully cut the grass and move the remaining pieces of the wooden cabin so that we can begin rebuilding it. This will then allow us to have somewhere dry to store our equipment and the tractor mower.
We suggest that we have a few volunteers to meet there at 11am so things can get done as swiftly as possible and hopefully some flying in the afternoon could commence.
A risk assesment will then be made by Geoff Harper to ensure everyone understands the rules of flying at the site. Nobody is to fly unless supervised or if they have their A profficiency test. Your Flyer ID must also be visible on your aircraft.
Please bring your own hand sanitizer and facemask as an additional precaution to comply with covid rules.
Christian & Mike

To all members.
Please would you all submit payment to Mike Roach before the end of December so that we may process all subs and fees to the BMFA for the new year ahead.
Stay safe all and wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

To all members concerned
As you all know this year has been a bit topsy turvy with the Covid-19 pandemic, with all of us being in lockdown at some point or not being able to fly our models. As a result of all restrictions currently in place, it is highly unlikely that we will be holding the annual AGM meeting this December, therefore we have decided that all Membership renewals will be dealt with by Mike Roach via post and also myself online. Please pay the relevent fees by cheque to Mike at his address (plesae see below) and we will then renew all BMFA memberships online.
Due to the fact that we have not had much flying time, we have decided to reduce the club fee renewal for this year only.
Prices as follows:
Club fees only = £35.00
Club fees(£35), BMFA(£38) & CAA(£9) total = £82
Club fees(£35), BMFA(£38) & CAA(£9)& BMFA Card(£3.50 total = £85.50
Please note currently the BMFA haven't issued any price changes if they do increase we will send out a reminder of this in due course.
Mr M Roach, 1 Blaenmorfa, Pontarddulais. SA4 8QX
Many thanks for all your support throughout the year and look forward to a better one next year.

Dear members I am pleased to announce that our new flying site is open for use as of this Saturday 26th of September.
I am arranging to meet there for around 10am with Lyn Moses, site owner as there are a couple of small jobs to do which I would be greatful if anyone could attend at that time to help. Please bring your flight kit with you to try out the flight path. Mike, Gary and Howard will be there at around midday with our Tractor mower.
I look forward to seeying you at the site, if more than six attend I will put in place the covid-19 track and trace just for club safety.
We will have to social distance as much as possible, so be safe and look forward to Saturday.
