Thanks for posting the flyer. I've added an announcement on my home page and linked to your post #1 above so folks can access the flyer. I hope they have a great turnout!

Many thanks I will make an effort to go, there is some cheap flights from Scotland to Italy and it would be great to see Paola again
I will post a report with pics if I manage to attend

Got an email from Franco explaining the change of date and some photos of his models looks interesting
Hope to still make the new date will keep you posted
Joe

Dear Joe
I am very sorry for the trouble caused to you by the date and location change due to FIAM (Federazione Italiana Aeromodellismo) who decided to join “MAF” and “Autogyro Day”.
You will find a description on the web “www.fiamaero.it”.
In any case please remark that Anghiari, the new location, is quite close to Florence, Pisa and Lucca and is offering more possibilities of cultural and art visits to be combined with the models meeting.
Please inform your friends in U.K. We will be very pleased to look your models and exchange our impressions and experiences.
Best personal regards.
Franco
P.S.:I am enclosing herewith the pictures of my prototypes. Only the first one has been carefully tested with three blades rotor with good results

Re-booked for the new date lost the cost of the first flight but managed to get the car hire moved to the new date
The new event includes an air show so not a pure Autogyro event
