Ashbourne Scale Day
« on: September 03, 2018, 18:15:11 PM »
Hello All

                                  DATE   14th of October with our usual back up Day of a week later    on the 21st

   Same as allways please put you name on here.

  all you regulars know the drill for the day, but all those newcommers, and i hope there is loads  :af

  here goes

  Gates open 8.30  flying will start at 10am and continue undisturbed untill 6pm or its to dark to see whichever arrives first,

 there will be the usual caterers on site............cheffy john and his oatcake/burger bar........tea and coffee unfortunately there is no loo as some scroats keep vandalising them, so its gone,

 anything scale is welcome.... whatever its powered by, just please let us know prior to arrival if its a turbine,
we have no size restrictions we only ask that yoiu leave any excessively noisey models at home, our neighbours are very few and we have a good relationship with them. and we like to keep it that way, they will know scale day is on and often visit.

I'd like to come but could you tell me at what point do you cancel if the weather isn't playing ball? I have to come from Dover so it's quite relevant.
there's only one f in RCMF,

Hi Chris,

Iíll try to come though maybe slightly because Ryan is doing a march wiv da cadets and Iíve got to drop him off first. It also means Iíll have to shoot off early.

Obviously Ryan wonít be coming.

Hope to see you then.

Cheers,

Dave Oakley

Helloo

  sorry for the delays in getting back, been distracted by other tings, (very elderly parents in and out of hospital)

  to answer BV, s question and for the info of all i will leave the go no go decision as late as poss probably the friday befor when we might have a reasonable idea of local weather,

 Dave turn up anytime mate you have my mobile if you need it.

  update on days details for those who are new to us,
 Our site is secured by tall fencing and locked gates, so on the day the gates will be manned until flying starts at 10am thereafter accesss is by a coded lock, on the gate you will find a bar with two padlocks on it one large for club members and one small especially for our event, the code you will need on the day is 109

cheers

Hellooo again

  as it is only two weeks away now i thunk its time to just update where we are for the newcommers

  DRCF ,  Derbyshire Radio Control Flyers, site, google us, is where Ashbourne scale day happens,

 the adress is Ladyhole Lane, Ashbourne, now if you put this lane into your sat nav devices you will not be surprised to see there is only the one in the UK, but should you need it the post code is

DE6 1LR

 this will bring you to the lane junction with the A52 Derby road, turn into the lane and continue aprox 1/2 a mile until you comr to a set of large galvanised gates, the second set, on your left they will be open before ten and closed after, code for lock is 109 just to remind you all, please lock the gates behind you,
 follow the runway keeping om the right all the way to the end, turn right and you will see us in front of you anothe hundred yards or so.

cheers

  chris

Well now
We are monitoring weather on an hourly basis and its not making good reading
Showing showers all day 30 % possibility with wind speeds at 14 mph. Now we can learn ve with the odd shower but wind is the killer. As you know RAF Ashbourne wes the highest in uk and the wind caused RAF to abandon it. Will be checking in again after main forcasts at lunchtime so watch this space 😁

Hi all
As promised a decision has been made
After checking numerous weather apps its been decided to postpone until next week.
Iknow some will be disappointed but we trid to look at it from a point of would we travel for hours given the forecast and honest I don't think I would
Just checked long range forecast and it's more settled so that tipped it
Hope you all understand and will have a grand day on the 21st

thanks gents
 as i sit here looking at a garden that apears to have had a visit from a herd of elephants trampling through flattening evrything, at least i know there are no more apples on me tree!!
   and its still blowing at 40mph at times i am glad we did, we are mindful in making these decisions that the weather where you may be might be not good for traveling, just seen news from wales and lancashire coast  ooo eeerrr,
so next week is on and it will happen we will just cope with whatever weather we get but to quote BBC we are looking at a more settled pattern of weather after this storm front has cleared through,  :xx
