Eaton Bray Model Sportsdrome

This article was published in August 1945. Please see Latest News for more recent information.

As stated in last month's Editorial, full facilities and amenities will not be available until next year, but from Saturday September 15th of this year, the Aerodrome will be available on Saturdays and Sundays for the flying of all types of model aircraft from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m.

Adminission charges will be 1s. per adult person, 6d. per person under sixteen years of age. Both these charges will be reduced by half for admission after 3 p.m. on both days.

Water for drinking purposes and lavatory accommodation for both sexes will be available free. A limited amount of protection from rain, will, it is hoped, be available, if required.

Cars, motor cycles and bicycles may be parked round the sides of the Aerodrome.

There will be no organized competitions this year, but club members may organize competitions amongst themselves, subject to non-interference with the flying of other visitors.

Flying may take place on any part of the Aerodrome subject to the general directions of the Aerodrome Manager.

Owing to the grass having been sown as recently as the Spring of this year, the normal close cropped surface will hardly have been consolidated. Small temporary take-off boards will be available.
