February 'Loops' competition that was cancelled due to bad weather will now be held in May. This replaces the originally planned 'Multi-Task' competition.

At the 11th December club meeting it was decided  to postpone the Xmas Cross Country planned for 14th December.  This is due to forecasted bad weather on that day. This event will now take place on Sunday, 11th January with a backup of 18th January.

Update 12th January 2015: We intended to hold the Xmas Country on the 11th but were thwarted once again by bad weather conditions. There were about a dozen intrepid fliers up 'The Peak', but a westerly wind was strong with very strong gusts. After generally consulting it was decided the conditions were too difficult for the a club competition and so it is postponed until the 18th January.


Due to a NATO meeting being held in Newport Wales on 3rd to 5th September, NATS has placed a flying restriction over a wide area that encompasses our flying site on Crook Peak. The BMFA have confirmed this flying restriction includes model flying. Click on this link to read the BMFA notification.

The link to the PDF document detailing the restriction on BMFA, BBC, ITV, etc. is broken. However if you click on this link: NATS Aeronautical Information Service website, a list of flight restrictions can be viewed. Look for the title: “North Atlantic Treaty Organisation Summit, Newport, Gwent – 3rd to 5th September 2014.

To see if your other flying activities fall within the restricted area, please look at document on the NATS website.

Please note this restriction is not optional it is the law.

WMSA club membership fees for 2015 are to remain the same as for 2014 – see here for details. However, BMFA has not made public their fee for 2015. Therefore, Bob Flook requested members to delay paying their WMSA membership fee until the outcome of a BMFA meeting in early December is known.

Bob Flook was presented with the Winner of Club Competitions 2013-2014 trophy. Full results are here.

In the original plan, the Pat Teakle Climb to Height competition was scheduled for the 17th August, however on that day Woodsprings Wings is holding its annual E-Flyin. Quite a few our our members like to go to this event so it has been decided to postpone our event to a week later, i.e. 24th August with the fall back date of the 31st August.
