Happy New Year to you all.

Looking forward to the first event, whenever that is.

The bad news is that my club (parcs) has been given notice on our field, and we have to be off by Mar 2018. At least that gives us some time to find a new site!!

cheers

Thats a blow Ian. Sign of the times Ian. I think thats going to happen more and more with the advent of the EASA regs scaring landlords off.

Hi Steve,

How about Saturday April 22nd, we can fly from 10:00 until dusk alongside the our normal club members.

So here we we have it the first Autogyro date in the diary for 2017, at parcs (Peterborough area radio control soc) use sat nav PE67PQ to find us.

This is not the first time that I/parcs have held an autogyro event, but it is the first for a few years.

Please let me know if you are intending to come along, just to give me an idea on numbers.

more details nearer the time.

Cheers

Hi Guys

Happy New Year to all..

As we stand I can do all three proposed events ie Ian 22 April, Steve 17 September and Tim 22 May subject to his confirmation.

Will try to sort out a Reading Do in the near future.

Cheers

What could possibly go wrong!!
All three events penciled in the diary thanks. Will have another event at Old Warden about the same date as 2016 but I can only set the exact date nearer the time. Good to have some AG get togethers in 2017to look forward to.

Right chaps! So far I'm only good for the 20 May

Dates for Winterton, we can do the end of July again 28, 29 & 30th or the week before 21, 22&23rd, let's start hearing from you then. We can fix the one with the most votes
