Welcome to Steve Beal the new Membership Secretary & Michael Silk the new Treasurer.
Many thanks to Terry Adams and Rich Ellis for all work they did for the Club.
The AGM voted to increase the Club fees to £30, which everyone agreed was prudent and great value.
The club's email list has moved from YahooGroups to Groups.io. This is because many people were having problems subscribing to the old list and it is no longer possible to add them directly. All existing subscriptions have been transferred but there are only 89 people on the list. Anyone not on the list can subscribe at cadmac.groups.io
The Crawley Club (CADMAC) was formed in 1960. Today we have about 100 members. All types of models are flown, radio control, free-flight, control-line and indoor.
Club meetings are held weekly on Thursday evenings during the summer on Holy Trinity School field and during the winter on Thursday evenings at the Hazelwick School Sports Hall.
In the winter CADMAC enjoys the use of the Hazelwick School sports hall for a Thursday evening of free-flight and RC flying. We have a full schedule of slots to accommodate all types of models in a safe fashion.
In the summer Club meetings are held every Thursday evening on Holy Trinity School field (pictured below). Access to the school is via Buckswood Drive, turning into Woburn Road and then left through the school entrance and into the car park.
The majority of members have been aeromodellers for many years, so the club has a vast store of knowledge. We welcome new members, who can be assured of friendly advice and assistance.
Many thanks to Jack Darby for producing the club newsletter, lets hope he gets lots of support and articles!

The SEBMFA Crawley Free Flight Indoor Meeting has been booked for Sunday 4 February at the K2 Leisure Centre.
To keep costs at an affordable level it was decided to hire two thirds of the main hall. The 2010 meeting demonstrated that this is still easily large enough for our flying. The Hangar Rat mass launch photo below shows how the hall was divided by a full height mesh curtain
Thursday 6 April
The Wally Barnes Trophy is a chance to show-off your latest creation, and let it be judged in terms of workmanship.
The Bring n Buy Sale is a chance to off load any spare or unwanted aeromodelling stuff!
Last years winner was Dick Stepney, pictured above, who made a superb job of the "Wagtail" control-line stunter. This model was designed by Club member Kim Jones and appeared in the Aeromodeller magazine in 1994.
This Competition will run from 5 May until the clocks go back in October.
