Wet Wings MFC second Annual "Splash-in" event, September 6th 2015

After the Sucsess of our first Splash-in Event in October 2014. I am pleased to announce... We are Daft enough to hold a second Annual Splash-in event at Carr Mill Dam, St. Helens, North West England, on. Sunday September the 6th.



You can fly electric and I.C. Models from our fantastic lake just a couple of miles off junction 23 of the M6 (Haydock)
there is a small fee for pilots but spectators can come along and stand there wishing they had bought a float plane... For free!

Anyone wishing to attend can p.m. Me for details etc. more information will be posted on this thread over the next few days.

We have a lakeside hotel and pub at your disposal and camping/caravan pitches with electric hook up also lakeside.

Here we go again! I must be mad

Yes
Here we are and July is nearly over... And the Wet Wings 2nd Annual Splash-in is now only a matter of weeks away (about six weeks!)

Are we prepared? Well... We will be!

Christine, our membership secretary has ordered "perfect weather" once again! So that is sorted.

We will start posting some more detailed information this week about the event on this thread now we are in sight of it..

Several flyers have already pre- booked with us and have sorted their accommodation, I will post details of the premier inn that is on the edge of the lake and the Holiday Inn that is less than a mile up the A580 East Lancs road from our lake at Carr Mill
And we do have on site camping facilities with electric hook up available for a nominal charge in our secure lake side camping/parking area if you wish
We will be there Saturday afternoon setting up and hopefully having an evening electric fly...
I.C. Is only allowed on the Sunday the 6th and is subject to a strict 76db limit.. Which will be monitored on the day. Most four stroke powered models will easily pass the 76db test, and a well silenced 2 stroke with a big lazy prop will also pass without difficulty.... Sorry but the site has strict noise regs and we have to comply!

Easiest way to get in touch with us is via our website. wetwingsmfc.beep.com just click on the contact us form or email us directly on wetwingsmfc@hotmail.com

Much more info will be posted this week

Thanks

So
Accomodation for our Splash-in on September the 6th

We have a premier Inn that is located on the edge of the lake of Carr Mill
Details...



We have a Holiday Inn about 3/4 mile (5 minutes) from the lake on the A580 East Lancashire road...
Details...



There are other hotels close by as we are only around 2 miles from Haydock race course

We have onsite camping/caravan/mobile home facilities with electric hook up available for just 5 per night,this must be pre-booked before the event, please contact us at wetwingsmfc@hotmail.com to book camping. We have a gated area with both grass and hard standing for our visitors.

We would appreciate pilots pre-entering for this event if you can to give us at least a ball park figure for numbers so that we can arrange catering.
We had a very successful catering facility on site at last years event with bacon sandwiches, hot pot dinner and cups of tea available most of the day.

Again you can contact us through our website wetwingsmfc.beep.com or by email to wetwingsmfc@hotmail.com

Thanks
David

A couple of photos of Carr Mill...

Here is a photo of the Premier Inn located at the waters edge, this shows the rear of the waterside Pub (Toby Carvery) to the left of the trees, and the Premier Inn Hotel to the right, both located at the entrance to the lake with a large car park.




A photo from inside our new club house directly above the landing stage where we launch our models, we have "proper" flush toilet and a small kitchen



And our new rescue boat awaiting its electric outboard motor

Just to remind you
It is our splash-in next Sunday... 6th September, it's just a week away

Looks like we are all sorted, we will be catering again with bacon butties in the morning and bbq in the afternoon

It's free entry for spectators and a small fee for pilots

It is Electric and I.C. On the day. But a strict 76db limit applies.. (Most four strokes have no problem passing this)

Please let us know if you are coming just so we have an idea of how many to expect

See you there
David
