NEWS: North East Wales now has a competion field

The BMFA have approved the Delyn MFC site for (mini) area events. There is a good open area with N and NW wind directions. However, the field is alongside a major road (A55) and if there is wind in any southerly directions we DO NOT fly.

The first event is on 18th June - mini vintage and P30. For details, contact Derek May or Dave Norwood via members@sam1066.org
