So, I joined a club! SRFC
« on: February 11, 2024, 19:27:27 PM »
I must have been talking about it for the last 20 years! And well, this year, you will finally stop hearing me mentioning it, because I finally joined a club! (Well, outside of the ISR! 🤣)

The club is the Shankill Radio Flying Club, located at the foot of the Sugar Loaf mountain, about 25 minutes from home, so ideally located!

I must say, of all the clubs I visited around Dublin, this is by far the friendliest and most relax about new comers, and to me, not a surprise their numbers are growing as I was told by Barry Saturday! Totally deserved!

I won’t bored you with the details, all I can say is that it is nice to meet like minded people, and as for me, when it’s not good for gliding, great to have another spot to crash my things 🤣

Anyway, here are a couple of photos, I’ll update here as I go along, so stay tuned!
Education is important, but flying RC planes and gliders is importanter!

very few of the guys I fly gliders with are members at just one club. Nearly everyone flies power/electric with another club.
Enjoy your new club Fred
