The Crawley Club (CADMAC) was formed in 1960. Today we have about 100 members. All types of models are flown, radio control, free-flight, control-line and indoor.
Club meetings are held weekly on Thursday evenings during the summer on Holy Trinity School field and during the winter on Friday evenings at the Hazelwick School Sports Hall.
In the winter CADMAC enjoys use of the Hazelwick School sports hall for a friday evening of free-flight and RC flying. We have a full schedule of slots to accommodate all types of models in a safe fashion.
In the summer Club meetings are held every Thursday evening on Holy Trinity School field (pictured below). Access to the school is via Buckswood Drive, turning into Woburn Road and then left through the school entrance and into the car park.
The majority of members have been aeromodellers for many years, so the club has a vast store of knowledge. We welcome new members, who can be assured of friendly advice and assistance.
The 2016 BMFA fees will not be known until after BMFA AGM on 21 November.
Once confirmed download the CADMAC Membership Form (in MS Word format). Payment can be made on-line using a bank to bank transfer, or by cheque if preferred. The completed form can be emailed to the Membership Secretary, or printed and sent by post.
There is a "Late Renewal Fee" of £5 if renewal is submitted after 31 January.
