Marshalling at Devil's Dyke and Beachy Head
There has been much talk about overcrowding recently so I'd like to remind all members about the systems already in place to control it.
For the Dyke, there is a marshalling kit in the cupboard behind the pub and it is the duty of whoever is first on site to get the stuff out and set up. Marshalling and controlling numbers of launches can be initiated whenever someone thinks it's necessary. This is the responsibility of every pilot on site.
For Beachy, marshalling, erection of the warning signs and notification to the council is now a compulsory part of the site agreement and is being checked by council representatives. If it isn't done every time pilots are on site, we risk loosing use of the site.
Details can be found in the site guide. http://shgc.org.uk/files/siteguides/SHGC%20Sites%20Guide%202015b.pdf
Nobody should be complaining about overcrowding without first themselves marshalling the site and doing something about it. - If you're not part of the solution, then you're part of the problem!
Happy flying, Dave
