Re: The LMA Web Site

It is unfortunately a chunk of work to transfer a build thread into a web page...which is why we've not done it! We have considered a few times doing such things, but like everything, it's the time & effort of doing it. A 'gash' way of preserving the build threads would possibly to print the who...

Re: Autumn Journal

There's nothing wrong with the current LMA logo, but one of the issues we have is that we don't actually have a 'definitive' LMA logo.

The club is bmfa affiliated, and having spoken to Richard offline I'll leave it up to the club to sort themselves out. As flying sites and members are both hard to come by, good luck in your endeavours. I've edited this thread slightly to remove the unnecessary message and references. Don't do it ag...
