Autogyro meetup

Hi,

I have permission from my club, to hold a bit of an autogyro flyin, this Sunday, ie April 17th. The club is parcs, ie Peterborough Area Radio Control Club.

We can fly IC or electric from 10am to 1pm, and after 1pm we can only fly electric.

I'm afraid I can't offer much in the way of facilities. There is a 40meter square patch, which was recently rolled, the rest of the field is meadow grass (and may be occupied by sheep). There are no toilet facilites, however there is a hedge.

Would be a good idea to bring along some sarnies and something to drink.

If you fancy coming along, send me a PM. Rich has shown some ineterest, so hopefully he will be there to launch my RPG-H2O :-)

cheers

Ian

Ian,
I hope to come along weather permitting. It seems like a while since we all got together and will make a change to have a weekend off work!


Regards

Rich

Excellent Rich,
Hopefully you will inspire a few others to join us :-)

Currently the forecast for Sunday is good, lets hope it stays like that.

I'll post a map and some directions later in the week.

I'll make a final decision on whether it goes ahead on Friday evening, and post on here.

Any questions, please PM me, and I can call you back or whatever

cheers

Ian

Here is a link to a map of our site :-
http://homepage.ntlworld.com/andy.st...s/peakirk.html
This was taken from our website, but isn't very good.

for a better map use this
http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&tab=wl
and type in the postcode below.

If you are going to use a satnav, the postcode of Moores farm, which is just beyond the flying site, is PE6 7QD.

If you wish to speak to me re directions, send me a PM with your telephone number.

cheers

Ian

Ian I have just arrived home from work and thought great a chance to get out and see the boys, but then spotted your date I would have loved to have come along but bloody work has got me booked on a course next week near to N-Orleans in the US of A which means I will be flying out of here on Sunday morning
I will of course be looking for model shops in the surrounding area so if any you boys need anything brought back (no 3rd scale stuff!!) please feel free to mail me.
Hope you all have a great day

Cali

See you tomorrow chaps,

Weather is going to be good!..which makes a change! I should get there late morning I expect, depending on what time I start out and traffic.
