Update from Club Secretary - 1 November 2020

Update from Club Secretary - 1 November 2020


Good afternoon members.


As noted in the recent VMAA e-mail that was sent to all VMAA Affiliates more than 10 people can be at a facility if each group can maintain a reasonable distance from each other & groups must be limited to ten people.


All the other Government regulations/guidelines must be followed, eg living within 25K of the field, face masks, social distancing, not congregating in groups etc. Please ensure that you are aware of these by reading the Government web site and publications.

The Club Rooms must remain closed. The attendance register must continue to be used to ensure that we have traceability should there be an infection.

Ivan Chiselett



Please note: As of 9th November, the 25Km rule was removed.

Good evening Members.


As you would have seen from the email sent by the VMAA, the 2 household limit has been removed from tonight. Now a maximum of 10 people are allowed at the field. All other restrictions like booking via the Club website, travelling no more than 25Kms, social distancing, mask wearing & completing the sign in register remain.

Update from Club Secretary - 18 October

 Update from Club Secretary - 18 October 2020


Good evening Members.


The Government released relaxed COVID-19 restrictions which are applicable as from Monday October 19.


The new regulations are similar to those in place previously with a couple of changes. The major change is that only those who reside with 25Kms of the field will be permitted to attend the field. Also there is a restriction limiting groups gathering to no more than 2 persons, with a maximum of 10 people at the field.

Please note: No more than 10 people at a time from no more than two households (not 10 individual people from 10 different households)


Please go to the Club web site to see the full details of how the field will operate under the revised Government regulations and how our field will operate. The Club web site booking system will again be the vehicle to control the numbers accessing to the field.


It is every members responsibility to conform to all the regulations and requirements for using the P&DARCS Flying Field.


Let’s hope that we will be soon able to attend the field without all these regulations and retraction.
