Wet field

Sat Nov 11, 2017 9:08 pm by Gary M Jones

Went to the field in the forlorn hope of someone being there.. not to be.

FIELD SECURITY .... The gate padlock issue seems to have been resolved with 'farmers' twine' !! This is now the only security & whoever has done the job has been to …

What a great day and turn out, Some loverley gliders on show and a guest tug pilot (thank god), everone seemed to enjoy the day and those that I spoke to thanked the "club" for a great day

Big Dave once again played Chef and great credit to him, Leighs got my cam with some pics and Alex Witticar poped in and snapped away (i`ll get some of his and look out for a write up soon

At last R&DMFC were rewarded with some reasonable weather sunny for an event. As has been previously mentioned there was a fair amount of carnage Suspect the vast majority being unexplaned. Marks tug being the first casualty on it's first flight (none tugging) of the day on a pass across the field it suddenly pitched it's nose down to 30 degrees and decided to make a start ploughing the field next door now having been cleared of it's crop. Luckily we had another visiting tug turn up which eased the workload on Richie's Wilga. We had The Alex Whittaker in attendance taking piccies so hopefully some will be appearing in a Magazine near you in the not too distant future.
Despite the said carnage I think all went home having enjoyed a good day at the field we had visitors from Stoke on Trent the West Midlands and the Manchester area and all who wished were kept well fed by our local gastronome Dave Sargent who during a lull in proceedings came up with a new way of making carbon props from reclaimed beefburgers No
