Coop Retirement

Retirement from the DARCSFIELD Coop

Recently both Mel Norton & Frank Connely have resigned from the DARCSFIELD Coop. With 35 & 25 years service respectively these individuals have contributed a huge amount to P&DARCS & the coop & the club would not be what it is today without their contribution.

Here are some details on their contributions

Shed Finished

It's Finished


You're not going to believe it (I don't) but all the the New Shed building works is finished. This last weekend, Paul Somerville, Frank McPherson & myself finished off both the mechanical & electronic security on the shed. Paul has been putting in a number of weekend work doing the mechanical security & we finished the electronic off this last weekend. A big thank you to those involved. We will begin moving into the new shed in the next few weeks.

Safety Starting Stand

Wally's New Project

He's going to need a really big engine to get this one to fly!



 But seriously, pictured is Chief Carpenter Wally with our prototype safety starting stand. Thanks to Wally, Alan Coleman, Fred Webb & Peter Harrison for getting this unit completed

Electric Alive

It's Alive

As most of you know, the shed has been in the process of being wired. Well, that's now over. The shed is alive. A huge thanks to Peter Harris who has put in enormous effort to get this done. Remember to thank him next time you see him. All this work he's done for free, saving the club HUGE money.
