P&DARCS flying field closed due to COVID-19 restrictions

Read message from Club President

Closure of P&DARCS due to COVID-19

Closure of P&DARCS due to COVID-19

To All Club Members,

 

The National Cabinet has issued Stage 2 level restrictions, effective as from 25th March. Under the heading 'Venue Must Close', the sub section which affects us is 'Social Sporting Activities'.--there are no exceptions listed. This evening the VMAA issued a directive that all clubs must close. The Club committee now have no option but to follow the Government & VMAA directives and to CLOSE Burley Field to all aeromodelling and social activities until further notice.

 

The only persons to be at the Field will those engaged in the management and maintenance of the property.

 

The Club Committee has a corporate obligation to our members for safe and efficient operation of the Club facilities. We must look after the wellbeing of our members, especially considering that a very high percentage of them are in the high risk age group. We trust you will all realise that this major decision is in your best interests and that you will stay at home—in the workshop—and produce that 'other model'--the one that is always on the future list.

 

Take care

 

Bill R

P&DARCS President
