Club Events 2015

The following event dates are now confirmed.

Effort was once again made by the Events Committee to hold our events on alternative dates to other UK modelling shows.

There will be an assistant for each pilot on the flight line. This person can be provided by Hucknall MAC, or be one of your flying colleagues if you prefer.

Before you travel to any of these events, email the named contact for the respective event to confirm it is still going ahead, and for any additional information about the day.

More details will be posted on this website nearer the dates, and also on the BMFA 'Contests and Events' pages.
