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.

Too windy to stay, so just 1 flight to make sure it all works.

... and went back for another session in the afternoon to show Chris what flying looks like.

Lunchtime session. Far busier than expected for such a grey day.

A nice session with blue skies and light wind. I had a eureka moment with the PWR when I realised why it had scored low and why DO does them different to me. I had thought it was a style thing, but I've realised I was just doing them wrong.

Gumley first, too busy. Larcs for a bit until it was time to get some lunch and get down to MK. It turned out to be a really nice session with the Daves. First a bit of work on SM for next year and then some rolling stuff.
Home for the F1 and then started putting some music together for next year's FTM.

2 Early flights at Gumley to check the rebuild and also make sure the genny was OK before I drove through to Loughborough for the 3D Champs funfly. Initially it was a bit rubbish, with the rain, and carpark being a long way from the flightline. I didn't have any cover, so I just had to hide until the rain disappeared enough to get the table, genny and chargers set up. After that it went really well, got to fly with George and the blokes from WHFC. Met atomiccomp and Maria.
