Joining FOG is very easy.
If you’re new to rocketry simply turn up to one of our meetings. We’ll show you how model rockets work, help you to select a suitable starter rocket, and guide you through your first few launches. Every new starter is insured to launch under supervision at their first two meetings. After those two free meetings members will have to join BMFA (for insurance) and FOG.
Subs for 2021 have been set at the following levels:
- Senior member (flying and voting rights): £7
- Junior member (17yrs and under, flying rights): £4
- Day member (flying rights): £4
BMFA membership, which includes insurance, is currently £38 for an adult and £17 for a junior. There are family membership schemes, and it is advisable to visit the BMFA website for details.
To avoid handling cash we’re taking payments electronically. Members are asked to use the link HERE to make payment (selecting the friends and family option) . Please email the club if this is a problem.
The structure of the club is very simple because we prefer flying rockets to holding committee meetings.
FOG has a committee and is run according to its constitution. The current committee members are:
- Chairman/Secretary: Mike Cocker
- Treasurer/Membership: Dave Bishop
- Welfare: Tom Roberts
- Senior RSO: Phil Charlesworth
FOG has a constitution which can be downloaded HERE, and this governs how the club is run. We have a policy for the welfare of young people and vulnerable adults which can be downloaded HERE. FOG holds its AGM in the spring.
