LORDENSHAW**IMPORTANT**

Post by colin keightley » Wed Dec 14, 2016 6:57 pm

It would appear that my earlier posts about Lordenshaw have created a little confusion. After re-reading my original post it could have been written a lot better to be as informative as possible.

So as it stands now Lordenshaw is NOT yet open for flying, we expect to commence flying in Feb 2017 and the site will be MEMBERS ONLY.

Information will be added to the sites guide.

I would also like to add that the sites guide should be used before going to fly a site as we all miss posts on the forum so you cannot rely on hearing about a closure or restrictions by word of mouth or the Forum. If a site is not on the sites guide please assume its NOT ok to fly.

For Christ's sake Colin's just said it could have been worded better now it's clear. People are working hard behind the scenes to secure this site. I don't know about the members only bit but if that is what the committee have decided for reasons they think are valid surely that's the way it is. They act on our behalf. If don't like it get voted on the committee and make your mark.

I'll wait for the minutes but I'm almost certain that I asked at the meeting if there were any objections to Lordenshaw being members only and there was none. Also a poll was ran on the forum which I think was almost unanimous that it was to be members only.

Just to be clear Ron......

Nothing has changed

When I initially posted about Lordenshaw both the Landowner and the Tennent were in agreement that we could use the site. What I didn't explain properly is that before we could fly we needed to contact the gamekeeper about what had been agreed and to find out if he had any restrictions. After speaking to the gamekeeper Christine has negotiated no fly months which will be confirmed later and will also be getting a contact for the shoots.

Hope this now makes it crystal

There will hopefully be a meeting with the Land Agent next week, although it isn't confirmed yet, I'll feed back to the club as soon as I've spoken to him. Sorry for the delay but it's out of my hands at the moment.
If you truly want to fly, give up everything that weighs you down.

Thanks Christine,

These things take time and have to be right. The update and your work on sites is much appreciated.
