We recently had the Kings Lynn Club kicked off their flying patch of many years for basically the same reasons being put forward by The Dartmoor National Park Authority who have now decided that they want to stop gliding on the Moors with a load of totally inconsequential reasons being put forward by them. It never ceases to amaze how a body like this can get a bee in it’s bonnet due to some totally unfounded spoutings of some imbecile but when presented by evidence to the contrary to these spoutings by us we are ignored. In this day and age it does beg the question – Who is getting the back hander here? Sadly the powers that be will no doubt bow to an Association like this and the ban will be imposed. We have proven over the years that we are a responsible bunch on the whole, but this is seldom taken into account and we are deemed a nuisance to be gotten rid of. One of the reasons put forward is Cultural Heritage. Surely this should include the hundred year heritage of model aviation or is this too short sighted on our part?
