Lane Repairs 2019

10 February 2019

HEIGH-HO HEIGH-HO  IT'S OFF TO WORK WE GO
WITH A SHOVEL AND A PICK WE GO DIG DIG  HEIGH-HO HEIGH-HO

 

 

Team NDMAC turned out in force on Saturday to sort out the ramp at the entrance to the lane

 

Seventeen tonnes of Crusher Run arrived at 10 am and the lads immediately got to work with forks, spades, shovels and rakes.

 

 

 

 

Molly (mistakenly) thought one member wasn't putting his back into it and made her feelings known

 

 

 

 

JOB DONE

 

A great big thank you to all the lads for turning out on the day

'A' Certificates

19 January 2019

 

Two courageous pilots put their name forward and took the 'A' certificate test this Saturday.
 

Brave indeed because the wind speeds were up around 14 mph and across the runway.

 

Steve tackled the blustry conditions with his petrol powered 'AcroWot XL' and, after being awarded a pass, he went on to answer the mandatory test questions correctly.

Keith got his 'Grand Tundra' out of the car, and despite the strong cross winds, he completed the flying test to the satisfaction of the our club examiners, Mike and Barry. 

 

                               

  

                                     VERY WELL DONE LADS

A PLEA FROM A CONCERNED PILOT

 

Bill Shanks

06 December 2018

Bill pased away peacefully on Tuesday 4th December 2018

 

He was a highly esteemed, long serving member of NDMAC, always immaculately turned out with collar and tie and shoes polished.

                                        

                                                                                     1927   -   2018

Generous to a fault, his mind was sharp as a razor despite his 90 odd birthdays and his hearing difficulties, which he never allowed to isolate him.  A gentleman of the 'old school', I never heard him say a word against anyone and he was always interested to hear the latest Club news.

Bill flew regularly up until the last couple of years, under the tutelage of Michael, with the aid of his buddy system.  He wasn't the greatest fan of electric propulsion, much preferring smoke and noise, and was determined, to the end, to get that elusive 'A' certificate.  On his other liking for smoke, he would say that it was easy to give up the habit, but it was even easier to re-start!

After Bill's road accident a few years ago, Michael, at no small gift of time and effort, also provided his much appreciated and caring transport to and from Kirkistown and other Club events.

Bill was a great example for us all and will be very sadly missed.
