Aerotow 14th May Cancelled

The aerotow event scheduled for this coming Sunday (14th May) is cancelled. The decision has been made based on the parcticalities of towing and landing large models at close proximity to a high and dense rape seed crop plus the unsuitable weather forecast. It is hoped that another day will be possible later in the year.

Weather Station

I am pleased to announce that the SMFC weather station is now installed and live. You can view real time weather at Forton field by going to the Weather Underground website: https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=IMONTFOR15  
The weather station contacts and updates the weather underground website every 45 seconds, if you click on the small 'gear wheel' at the top right of the web page, you can choose between metric or imperial display. Our thanks to the talented Richard Golding for building this project.

Secretary
