The Dewsbury & District Model Aero Club (DDMAC), 50th Aniversary Fun Day

Dear Club Committee Member,

The Dewsbury & District Model Aero Club (DDMAC), is 50 years old this year.

We are holding an informal Fly-In and Open Day to celebrate this anniversary, on Sunday 7th August 2016, at our flying field, from 11.00am onwards. The day will conclude at 5.00pm. We are aiming to serve Pie & Peas, towards the end of the day, from 4.00pm onwards. Tea and Coffee making facilities, will be available in the club cabin, throughout the day. We now have, onsite toilet facilities at the field.
The club would like, to extend an invitation to your members, to join us for the day, to celebrate this anniversary.
I would be grateful if you could circulate this email to your club membership, extending our invitation, to join us for the day.
To assist with catering and managing the numbers on the day, I would be grateful if anyone who wishes to join us, at this event, could complete a simple on line form (link below –it will only take a few seconds), indicating their intention to attend and any requirements for pie and pea.
Attendance & Food Order Form Link:  http://goo.gl/forms/UF8gtM9GcKQXtQBz1
The event will be run on a safe, but informal basis with some ad-hoc fun flying events, for people to try, during the day.
We are hoping to generate some press interest, to publicise the club and promote safe flying in general. The club trainers and the smaller version of the BMFA flight simulator (the big double one is already booked), will be available, to allow any interested parties to have a try at our hobby.
We do have a limit of no models over 7kg, to be flown down at our field. We do not allow turbines and have a noise limit, of no models over 82db measured at 7 metres.
We have a separate section on our club forum (link below) giving full details of the event.
Any updates will be placed on the club forum, including nearer the time, confirmation the event is going ahead, or cancellation details, should we have to postpone the event, due to any adverse weather conditions.
