Indoor Flying 2013-2014

The committee of the Sheffield Society of Aeromodellers is pleased to announce that the next session of indoor radio flying will commence on Sunday 6th October 2013 at 9 am and will continue until 30th March 2014, with the exception of 10th November, 2013 to accommodate the annual badminton competition.

As before the session lasts from 9 to 11 am.  The committee has decided to keep the fees the same as last even though the cost of hiring the hall has increased.  The fees will therefore be £2 for club members and £4 for non members. Unlike some clubs we do not charge for spectators.

There has been a change to our conditions of use of the hall regarding public liability insurance. This means that only fully paid up BMFA members (and fellows) are entitled to fly and that committee reserves the right to check that any flyer is a member of the BMFA and ask for the production of a membership card.  It is important therefore that all club members wishing to fly in the new year should pay their affiliation fees to the membership secretary before the end of December.
