Title: Have your say!
Post by: sihinch on January 08, 2018, 05:45:26 pm
Hi Everyone!

I’d like to ask for some feedback, please?

Now you have (foolishly!?) elected the Board back for another term, I’d like to check we’re on track.

We try very hard to give you, our members what you want. But we may not always get it right.

So, if you’d like to see new events, changes, improvements or if there’s something you don’t like please feel free to (tactfully - cos we’re sensitive) suggest it below.

I’m making no other promises other than we’ll listen! But hopefully, if there’s some positive workable suggestions, we’ll do it!

It would really be nice to have some mood music in the Loo.  Maybe just a bluetooth speaker and we could bring our own stuff.  8)

Is it possible to extend the runway?
And a Sun shade would be nice.

I  second the music but not in the loo! and the sunshades! The longer runway would be nice but I usually land in the field anyways  ::) no more corn please!!  :'(

We could setup a row of sunshades, they aren't too expensive, we just need to dig a few posts!

I just don't think we should be tactful to the board!!  ;D

I guess we should also setup a frequency board for FPV now that so many of us have gotten the FPV disease.
And no I won't be the one to suggest a drone racing area, I understand, I have already caused enough trouble in the past couple of years!!

The frequency board is clever for FPV.

Simon, is there any chance you can get a burn barrel out to the field before 11 tomorrow morning?  A little firewood and kindling would be helpful too. 

It would be much appreciated by a few.

Hi everyone, just an update on what we discussed at the last Board meeting, regarding your suggestions.....

Regarding the runway extension - we agree this would be nice.  Since our current runway is starting to look quite tired, we are proposing a replacement runway installation in 2019.  At this time, we would look to increasing length and width.

Sun shades - yes! Great idea.  However, the Board felt that due to the risk of vandalism and damage from the elements, we can't have anything that we can leave up all the time.  And if we had a more substantial erect-able sunshade (like the one Stephan), someone would always need to put it down when it's been used for the day.  So the Board decided that a new sunshade would not be a workable solution.  Everyone is welcome to use the TEMAC tent that is kept in our storage bin on the field.  But you must please make sure you put it away again.

The FPV frequency board was agreed as a great idea by the Board, and before we could act some very kind members have developed a solution that is being implemented as I write (thanks @Crazyflyer and @ppalumbo .)

We're also planning to add some more gravel again this year, to help sure-up the drive and increase access in Spring and Autumn.  Every year our efforts increase the length of usable flying season at Rogofield, by improving access.

And finally, for 2018, we plan to level "the loo" and storage area, to improve the overall "relief" experience.  So you can pee upright!  ;)

Hope you understand and approve!  :)

@BJROB,

You are so right!  I'll have to get checked out on a Pipistrel Alpha Electro www.pipistrel.si/plane/alpha-electro/overview (http://www.pipistrel.si/plane/alpha-electro/overview). :D
