Covid Update - Flying Field Closed

Unfortunately due to the announcement by the government last night (4/1/2021), the MDFC committee have decided we have no option but to suspend use of the club field until further notice. This is regrettable but mandatory as this statement from the government is very clear: -

"Outdoor sports venues, including tennis courts, golf courses and swimming pools, must close".

This closure is with immediate effect.

Be advised that we will maintain the flying field in the first rate condition it is now.

As soon as the government change their advice to make club flying possible, we will immediately be in touch.

Please stay home and be safe and well. Hopefully, we can get back to the hobby we all enjoy in as short a time as possible.

Arrangements for Paying Subs Dec 2020

Regarding COVID-19 and Re-joining for 2021

As you know, Nottinghamshire will be entering tier 3 on 3rd December and so, all pubs and hospitality will be closed. We are however, able to use the room at Polly Bowls Club on Thursday 10th December for two hours from 6.30-8.30 for members to re-join for next year. There will, of course, be no BAR by law and this arrangement isn’t designed to be a social event. It's merely to pay your subs and then exit the building.

Please have a face covering and sign in on arrival. We will be operating a one way system for entering and leaving the building and restricting the number of members entering at one time.

If you are paying by cheque please have it written out to: -

Mansfield & District R/C Model Flying Club.

You can also forward cheques to me at: -

Valerie Gascoigne
84 Farndale Road
Sutton in Ashfield
Notts NG17 4NF

Please feel free to post date cheques to the10th December 2020. I will not be banking them until after that date.

Alternatively if you are paying cash, please have the correct amount. This will help to avoid unnecessary handling of money and help comply with our safety precautions.

The cost of joining is: -

Full Members £97 ie. £50 Club £38 BMFA £9CAA (From 1st January the Club fee will increase to £60 for Full Members making the amount payable to £107)

Junior Family Members £24 ie. £11 Club £13 BMFA

Optional BMFA plastic membership/loyalty card £3.50

Just to remind you, your BMFA Insurance will expire on 31st December 2020 and you need BMFA insurance to be able to fly at our field in the new year.

We regret any inconvenience these arrangements may have caused you but please be assured of our best intentions at all times. We have expressed our appreciation to John at Polly Bowls for making the evening available to us.

There will be no meeting in January as there is little chance of circumstances changing by then.

The Committee
Mansfield & District R/C Model Flying Club
