Classified Ads BMFA / SAA

Bill Grimsley managed to contact the BMFA regarding the situation with BMFA Classified Ads.
Recently their Classified Ads website was hacked from somewhere in Central Europe resulting in the BMFA having to design a new Ads section for the website.
This, however, is tied into their membership database and that is where the problem lies. 
They are still working on the Ads section. Members can access the Ads but until they are able to re-register and get a pin number they won't be able to post anything. They will eventually get round to organising the route for SAA Members to again post up items for sale.
They haven't got a time scale as to when this will be implemented, but Bill assures us he will keep an eye on it.
In the meantime he has set in motion a classified ads option in conjunction with airtime editor Billy Dunn for the SAA which you may find useful.
The routine to make use of this service is as follows

Send an email to air@saaweb.co.uk

This should include a description, price, a contact number and a picture of the item.
Items will remain on the page for 30 days before being removed therefore avoiding clutter and items that have been sold can be removed if the individual does not make contact .

Guardian Report 2014

It gives us the greatest satisfaction to report that there was not a single example of a question of ethics that was
raised in 2014.  That is just as it should be with a Council that works hard on our behalf.

My own experience only goes back to the mid ‘70s, but it was also gratifying to note that the AGM was carried out without the bitterness or rancour that some of us have seen of late.

At that AGM, you will have heard of the indisposition of our colleague Guardian, Peter McKenna FSAA.  As it is likely that it will be some time before Peter can tell us of his wishes, we have asked Alan Gibson FSAA, to assist meanwhile.  Those of you who know Alan, will agree that he is ideal in that he has experience and the best interests of our Association at heart.

The future team will be decided when Peter is up and about again.

See you downwind

Len Nicholls FSAA
