How to become a member of Mansfield & District R/C Model Club

Please note that the membership year runs from 1st January to the 31st of December. The club requires all pilots to have current BMFA insurance and you may find it most convenient to renew this through the club at the same time as your club membership. Just make out your cheque to "Mansfield & District RC Model Club" for the appropriate total and post or hand it to the club membership secretary.

Existing members can post their cheque to the membership secretary (include your details & BMFA number) at: -

MDFC Membership Secretary. 84, Farndale Road, Sutton-in-Ashfield, Notts. NG17 4NF

One of the quickest ways to join is at the club monthly meeting held at the ‘Polly Bowls Club’, 10 Unwin Road, Sutton-in-Ashfield, NG17 4HN. This is generally on the first Wednesday of the month, 7:30pm for prompt 8:00pm start. See the 'Notices' page for any variations in day.

If you should wish to join MDFC then please either attend the next club meeting or telephone one of the committee listed on the contacts page and they will talk you through the process.

If you're new to the hobby, we recommend that you come to our flying field prior to spending your hard earned money. You will find members who will happily give you advice on which transmitter and model to buy.
