Let me know if you’ve entered but your name isn’t on the list - some entries have been going into my spam folder.

Hi Adam
I am going to withdraw from this comp. as being in the high risk age group and not having done any flying. Hope you have a good day

Hi, not having been to this airfield before are their any other joining instructions other than the GPS coordinates please.  It's not something I usually use for a satnav, is there a postcode or an OS grid ref please?


Also what facilities are onsite?



Thanks, Neal

Neal - if you use the postcode NG20 0EW and look for ‘Parliament oak’ then you’ll see a big pair of green gates. The field is down that lane. I’ll be sending out more details in an email to all pilots this weekend. We don’t have any facilities on site.


Richard - unfortunately not, although there are plenty of camping sites around the area.

Still room for a few more entries!


Re the gate to the lane - should be open from 7.15am. If travelling from the South - (A6075 from Mansfield Woodhouse to Edwinstowe) - look for Red Brick House Pub/restaurant on the left. The Lane entrance is 1/2 mile on the right.

This length of road is now a 50mph limit with average speed cameras...…. We are about 4 miles from the famous major Oak in Sherwood Forest. There is plenty of parking space - but please park 2 metres apart & respect 2 metres social distancing on the field.

A hand sanitiser will be available at the club hut, but unfortunately due to covid we are unable to provide refreshments this year.

GPS coordinates for site entrance 53 11' 14.6"N 1 08' 23"W

Adam. Thanks for organising a very good comp. Four rounds for everybody.


Thanks also to the club and to Andy/Kevin for judging every round.  Oh, and to Richard W for his demo in the Pitts.
