The BMFA NW Area in conjunction with Shropshire MFC will be holding a Scale Fly-in on the 22nd May at the Shropshire MFC flying site at Montford Bridge, just off the A5, west of Shrewsbury. This will be a BMFA Centenary Event.
This will be a fun event. Spot prizes for ‘Pilot’s Pilot’, Best in Show, Best Foamie plus others. We are also planning on a special prize for the best (flown) David Boddington Club 20 Scale Model as a tester to see if there is interest in this type of Scale Model.
Numbers will be restricted to about 50 so you MUST pre-register either by email to me (email@example.com) or append your name below and I will maintain a published list.
If this is successful, we are planning on making this an annual event.
There will be a £5 admission fee.
Flying will be from a grass strip.
Sorry, no turbines but EDF are OK.
A BBQ will be laid on.
Hope to see you there.
