Following successful courses on “Radio” in July and “Navigation” in November last year, we now have completed a course on “Weather Theory” over 3 session this April. Due to Covid-19 the course was only virtual, but was well attended and received by a good number of members and friends.

Special General Meeting

This is to confirm that there will be a special general meeting on 14th Dec 2019, 11:30am at the club house for the following purpose:

— To vote on revised club rules
— To elect a club committee.

MAC members make sure you attend this meeting ! We need to get a sufficient number of financial members to make a quorum, and we need to appoint a full committee as required by our current club rules.
Without that the club will be defunct.
