The LMSC AGM will be held on the 31st of March at the Crown Inn Pub Bridgnorth.

It will commence at 20.30 and it would be good if Members who are available could attend, as your ideas and input into the running of the club is always appreciated.

Re: LMSC 2020 AGM

All the committee posts are up for re-election
and some current officers are standing down

As well as the officers, there are up to four
places available on the committee for additional
members to provide help and expertise. The
committee is essential to the functioning of the
club and it is important that it properly
represents the interests of its members particularly in:

• Negotiating with the owners/tenants of the fields where we take off and land.
• Working with the BHPA to ensure safety, insurance cover etc.
• Providing a forum for promoting club activities
and helping us all to enjoy our flying.

The agenda will be:

1. Reports from each Committee Officer with a portfolio.

2. Election of Committee Officers (some members
are resigning their post, others are standing for
re-election as described below).

3. Any motions proposed.

Any member can ask for something to be placed on
the agenda; this should be sent as soon as
possible to Nick ( or Richard (

Officers standing for re-election:

Treasurer: Jason Smith
Safety: Dave Thomas
Membership: Luke Evans
Competitions: Kevin Williams
Sites: Kevin Williams
Wrekin site manager: Tony Flint
Social: Sian Leavesley

Members without portfolio: George Kirby, Haden Andrews, Mick Bird Jones

Officers standing down

Chairman : Nick Le Gras
Secretary : Richard Jerman

The current Chief Coach is Mark Leavesley. This is a
committee appointment, not an elected post. Mark
is willing to take on this role again.

We applaud the sterling work the members of the
committee have undertaken on behalf of the club membership
in the past year.

Without them we likely would have no sites and no

It’s important that new blood is injected regularly
to the committee.

So here is an appeal to any member who
might feel they can assist with potentially
vacant committee officer roles as identified above.

All we ask is that you help where
you can and attend meetings when you are able to.
Your contribution will help to keep the club
running smoothly and ensure its long term

Having all roles on the committee filled
benefits all club members and makes the job much
easier for the committee as a whole.

If you think you might be willing to offer your
services to the club in some capacity for the
coming year, then please do contact the chairman
( ) or secretary
( ) and/or come to the AGM
to put your name forward at the meeting with a formal proposer and seconder.

We look forward to seeing members on the 31st. It’s your club, so come along.

Long Mynd Soaring Club AGM ...Posponed

Given the current situation with the Coronavirus Pandemic, the Committee have been monitoring the evolving situation and now consider our best approach is to postpone the recently advertised AGM which was to be held on Tuesday Wednesday 31 March 2020 from 8:30 pm at the Crown Inn, Bridgenorth.

It will now take place as soon as is practicable. In the meantime, the current committee will remain in post.
