Update on the status of Middle Wallop availability.

It is very unlikely that SAM1066 would be granted permission for any free flight meetings in 2018. This message comes following continued dialogue with the Middle Wallop Authorities, however the same
message indicated that "we should not give up" as conditions may change in the future. It is probable that SAM35 will apply for a couple or so meetings next year, at which radio assist free flight would be permitted. Peter Michel apparently was flying a radio assist Wakefield to a high degree of perfection, so there is a way forward for those who wish to follow this direction.

Suggested competition program for 2018 as detailed in November issue of New Clarion.

Your Committee is very aware that we have been operating without a Chairman since the sudden & sad passing of John Thompson earlier this year. We have approached Tony Shepherd, who has been a competitive & enthusiastic member of SAM1066 for many years, to co-opt him into the post of Chairman until our AGM. He also has the significant advantage of being younger than most of us! Tony has agreed to take on this role & it is the decision of your Committee to now nominate him for the post at the AGM. 

Any further nominations for Committee positions and details of any other business to be discussed should be received by the Chairman at least 14 days prior to the meeting. Tony can be contacted at:


Light refreshments will be provided

All nominations and details of any other business to be received by the Secretary at least 14 days prior to the meeting.

            When nominating committee members the following should be taken into consideration:

            SAM 1066 is an Internet based club and therefore it is essential that all of the committee members have:
            Access to internet via a broadband connection. 
            The use of the necessary hardware and software to enable the club to function efficiently.


            Currently the club does not own or provide such facilities necessitating that committee members provide their own.
            However expenses for consumables such as paper and inkjet cartridges etc. are refunded.


            The following members of the present committee will be seeking re-election for 2018:

         Ed Bennett (Treasurer)

         Roger Newman (Secretary)

Mike Parker (Membership Secretary)
