Title: covid-19 field status
Post by Fingers on May 3rd, 2020 at 11:19am
I had a call from Jim Sutherland, Truro Club, last evening about field status as a result of the revised precautions in place. He said that is discussion with 811, he was told that RC Flying did NOT fit in with the relaxed restrictions so they/we. couldn't fly.

Today I spoke to 811, got a nice lady who couldn't think of any reason why RC flying shouldn't be allowed as long as we distance, and take all the precautions. She did agree with me, though, that the RCMP are the ones who would give the ticket.....Tomorrow morning when the detachment opens I will call the detachment and see what the officers say. Let you know.
If any of you have other postings, use this thread to keep it all together....

Monday, May 4th - speaking to the Windsor Detachment of the RCMP this morning, they have no problem with us flying at the field, which, in their opinion falls under sports field, so it's available. They also confirmed, because it is a sports field, the 5 person does NOT apply. As long as we social distance we are good to go.
