Sunday 30th
Phil and Keith flew their helicopters. Stan flew his Panic and landed in the next field with a big thud, the model survived with just minor damage. Adrian tried out his rebuilt T-rex 400
Clive organised a working party to make a road into our field, our Chairman  arrived too late to help

All day long they work so hard
Till the sun is goin' down
Working on the highways and byways
And wearing, wearing a frown
You hear them moanin' their lives away
Then you hear somebody sa-ay
That's the sound of the men working on the chain ga-a-ang
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang

Tuesday 4th
I arrived to find the landing strip full of heifers and one over friendly jersey who would not leave me alone. I managed two flights with my Fox. When CB arrived they all charged off and started licking his jeep, Chris was unable to fly his helicopter.
 We have seen the farmer and hope to solve the problem. If you visit the field take care to stop them escaping through the gate
