Calling out to all you Retired Grey Ghosts, Silver Foxes…or a term we affectionately prefer to use ‘ Ol’ Farts’
Head out to the HMAC field on a Tuesday mornng for a fly with your fellow Senior section of the club.
A chance for a social catch up, a cup of tea, scones and possibly even some flying !!!
The electric fence system is back at full capacity and running well. Be aware that it now gives the cows a good shock if they touch it, and that goes the same for us humans !!! Please do not leave fences arcing (shorting) on the ground as this can damage the wiring. If you cause any significant damage to the wire, such as breaks to a wire or the handles etc, please effect a repair as best you can and notify either Gordon, Phil or Grant (see Contacts page) as soon as posssible thereafter. Also, the Fence Power Unit must never be turned off, likewise the battery must never be disconnected, or used for other purposes (eg charging batteries). We cant afford to have a faulty fence as the cows will walk right through it and the damage could pontentially be huge. Please take care to put the fence up correctly.
The last Person at the field must ensure the Electric Fences are correctly erected (put up) and working before leaving the flying site. Please do a walk around the entire electric fence before departing, to make sure it is completely up and working with no short circuits. Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES should the electric fencing be left lying on the ground if there are no persons using the runway at the club site.
