Hemel Hempstead Model Flying Club
Newsletter - Sent 11th July 2019
This year the Shenley site BBQ is first up being the weekend of 20th/21st July. The weather has been kind over the past few weeks so we are hoping this continues! We will check the forecast leading up to that weekend to decide which day looks best and let you all know.
The Puttenham site BBQ is set for the weekend of August 10th/11th and again a decision will be made nearer the time as to which day is preferable.
As always soft drinks, rolls, salad, plates and cutlery will be provided at both events so all you need to bring is your choice of food to be BBQ’d and of course something to fly!
While writing it has come to our attention that someone may have been setting fire to a number of lipo batteries at the Shenley site leaving the charred remains in the wheel barrow behind the container!
Apart form the obvious danger to those involved, or close by, there is also a very high risk of setting fire to the crops which at present are very dry and very close to the pits. Any form of accident relating to such an act is also a potentially serious liability for the club.
Can we therefore ask that you all dispose of any batteries responsibly.
We do hope to see as many of you as possible at the BBQs.
With kind regards to all
