Sunday 2/9/07 - Our Club AGM - Bees Knees Pub, Leicester at
7.45 PROMPT, if you are late you will be stood against Malc's tree, shot and dagga
daggered until you are dead, and stiff as a board, and you won't be invited to any more meetings. Ho Ho !!
Latest Key news. Due to people messing
us about and not returning keys to us, we have increased the key deposit deposit to £25, to encourage people to
return their keys if they leave our club.
Every member will pay £25, existing, and
new members, so from the 1st of May 07, we will be asking you for the extra amount when we see you. So, just like the
Boy Scout motto, "Be prepared !!"
Note! - Existing members will not be allowed to re-join our club next
year if this hasn't been paid.
Other less important information:
(Will be added here, Club Barbeques, Flying Competitions, Fun Days etc)

Arranged Mid-Week Flying Days:
Waiting for input from members !

More Club info:
We will definitely be buying a Helium bottle and balloons this
year (2008), even if I have to get them myself, so that we can have Balloon Busting Competitions, for everyone - Beginner,
Intermediate, and Expert levels.
We will also be buying Poles and Streamers for "Limbo" Competitions.
I will inform everyone later of intended dates.
Other Club Services:
Do you need an extra couple of inches !!!
If you need an extension lead, or a "Y" lead, talk to Steve on: Leicester 2856421, and
he will make you one (Futaba or JR), and he only charges 50p per plug (any length).
Steve is also selling Receiver aerial wire -
very thin and flexible - yellow - 50p per metre.
Talk to Steve as well if you need a sprung wire undercarriage for your plane, he
has the wire and the wire bender to do it, just give him a call. Note! - all of these are for members
I know this is nothing to do with flying, but take a look at
these ......... WOW !!!!!!!
Hot News !! . "Malc's Tree" is no longer Malc's Tree, Leigh has now taken over this
prestigious title by CRASHING both of his planes into the tree, on two consecutive weekends. On both occasions
the plane hit the tree very high up, and stayed there.
Ask him, or other members how we got them down.
So the tree is now "Leigh's Tree", UNLESS YOU CAN DO BETTER !!!!.............
We need more idea's, have a think (I know it's hard), my brain
hurts as well.
All Members please have a think!
Is there any information that you would like to see on
just let me know, thanks! - Dave.
