The Leicester Model Aero Club (LMAC) was founded in 1932, by a group of 14 to 16 year olds who flew rubber powered models on Leicester's Victoria Park. It was originally called the Stoneygate Model Aero Club after the area of the City where most of the members lived, but was renamed Leicester Model Aero Club as the membership grew. The first Secretary was Norrie Williams (sadly deceased), and the first Treasurer was the still active Reg Goadby.

Gumley first thing until I realised I was supposed to meet Marc at Larcs. Had a BBQ for lunch and watched Matt put a few good flights in. It got busy after a while, which was nice to see, but not really my thing. Back to Gumly for a few cups of tea and a bit more flying.

Raining in the morning so took the opportunity to change the front TT gearbox and auto-rotation gears. The rain stopped after lunch and I made it to Gumley just after one o'clock. Only a handful of people around, and they left early, so I had the field to myself for the afternoon. Worked on some weaknesses and had a bit of a chinwag with a few visitors.

Went to Larcs but decided it was too cold/windy to hang around in the open so drove through to Gumley. Had a few flights before it got busy and I went back to Larcs. Quite a few around and they had a BBQ. Stayed for a few hours until everyone packed up and I went back to Gumley for a few more.

Started at Larcs in the frost, on my own for a few hours. Went for lunch and then on to MK. Just 4 of us flying in the sun. Not sure where everyone was, the weather was great.

Started off at LMAC. Was a bit busy with planes, left early.
Wasn't sure where to go after that. Felt like a bit of company but still with opportunity to fly big, so made the drive through to MK. Turned out to be perfect. Sun was out, fairly warm and no wind. Just myself, Dave and Phil flying helis. Flew Kev's quad again and crashed it. Good session.
