Moray Firth Flying Club - 2022 Update


Recommended Posts

Changes to the 2022 Race program, Membership fees and Birdage costs, 

A new program has been put together to give fanciers more distance than last year due to not getting into Ireland, The new program will give members racing out to 500 mile, There will also be a change to how membership fees and birdage costs are paid to an upfront payment at the start of the year of £200 which will cover all fees for the entire year, Membership fees at £50 and Racing fees at £150, £150 over 17 races works out at around £8 per race which should benefit the majority whilst still keeping costs down to a minimum,

Furthermore I'd like to announce that the club will be putting up a prize fund for nominated races in both OB and YB programs for the 2022 seasons. Prize money will be awarded to the top three fanciers on the open result from nominated race’s, All trophies and diplomas won in 2021 will be given on basketing night of the first race, I hope this will encourage and motivate members to look forward to the year ahead,

Feel free to get in touch for anymore info, I'm happy to answer any questions you have.

Cheers Lee

I assume there is no limit on someone taking top three in a money race

Maybe should've made it a little clearer, Prize money will be awarded to the top 3 fanciers on the open result not the top 3 positions, hope that makes sense lol

Am I the only person from Banff that's joined? How members are you up to?

So far Ryan,

we're upto 30 members as of today with word of more joining in February, Some I believe are planning on flying with both the Moray Firth and North of Scotland so to have 2 races in one day, what could be better!
