1 Membership requires approval
We are always pleased to welcome new members, experienced and novices. We do, however, have to maintain a maximum membership of about 100 members, due to site usage restrictions etc. When we do run into this situation (which we have yet to), we will of course allow new members on a first come, first served basis.
New members applying to join between 1st December and 31st December will have their subscriptions cover them for the following year.
Memberships (available from 1st July 2018)
Our memberships fees are made up of 2 elements: the club membership fee, and the BMFA membership fee. If you have BMFA membership elsewhere, you do not need to purchase a membership with it included.
The memberships are split by age as follows;
They are further spit by the following types of memberships ;
This is available to anyone that was a member of the club during the previous calendar year, and is joining after the 1st of July.
BMFA Insurance is mandatory for our Club. This can be obtained through WMFC. Please note that insurance from any other organisation is not sufficient, you must be a member of the BMFA. This is a condition of our club's affiliation with the BMFA.
It is also necessary for any person who flies at the site as a guest to have BMFA insurance, again any other insurance is not acceptable. Please see these two statements from the BMFA for further details.

In addition, all rates are discounted towards the end of the year to reflect the reduced BMFA rates.Here is our constitution, where membership rules are outlined;
"4.6 Subscriptions are due by 1st January each year. Any member, who has not paid the subscriptions for the ensuing year by this date will not be permitted to fly until they have done so. BMFA membership must be in place before flying.
4.7. Members who have allowed their membership to lapse for up to one month will not be asked to re-apply for membership, but will be required to pay a full 12 months subscription.
4.8 Members who have not renewed their membership by 31st January will be deemed to have permitted their membership to lapse. Lapsed members will be treated as a new membership application but will not be eligible for new membership discounts offered by the Club.
4.9 Reduced subscriptions for BMFA new members will be applied according to BMFA’s own published terms."
