Calling All SAA members

Once again we need some help setting up the Site at Strathaven for the Large model Show.
Any assistance we can get from Wednesday to Friday and also on Monday will get you free camping for the weekend.

We'll be looking for help setting up fencing and marking out along with Monday for removal of fencing.
The more bodies we can muster will make the job easier and quicker and will get you free camping for the weekend.

Remember it's the SAA and the LMA show.

Montrose Model Aero Club's spring fly-in,

Held this year on Sunday May 8, attracted modellers from all over Scotland. A good turnout enjoyed the sun, and lack of rain/snow.

Held on the playing fields that once were the wartime airfield, the Club has been flying here since 1944.

Our Club has a site that is rented by us from Angus Council, and thanks are due to them for allowing the Club to use the entire playing fields for the day, so we could have a larger event than our normal Club fly-abouts.

Our members had put in some time in the previous week lining the pits, etc., and filling in rabbit holes, onerous but worth it in the end to get a nice flying area.

Sunday dawned bright with high altitude cirrus. A sometimes stiff wind off the sea did not bother the fliers, and as it blew straight down the runway it helped a lot in take offs and landings. Swallows were seen overhead, that is the feathered type, so it must be summer!

The Club laid on grub in the form of sarnies, cakes, coffees and the usual crisps and cokes, which seemed to be appreciated!

All in all a good day was had, nice to meet old and new friends such as Bill Brown from Pitlochry and Alistair Nicol from Cumbernauld, and see some fascinating models from other clubs, from foamies to jets and large scale models. Exciting models being flown in an exciting (but safe) style.

One day events can take up as much time, effort and bumph to organise and set up as much larger shows, so it is good for us to see modellers turn up and enjoy themselves.

Many thanks again to all who helped set up the site, and to all the modellers who came on the day.

Graham McIntosh. Hon Sec
