John Moore leaves Council

John Moore

The BMAA Council was very sorry to learn of John Mooreís resignation from Council over the weekend. There can be few members who arenít aware of John, who came to prominence in 2001 when, at very short notice, he organised a fly-in at Bembridge airfield on the Isle of Wight after the PFA Rally at Cranfield was cancelled due to the foot-and-mouth restrictions. The name Spamfield grew out of the traffic on the forum and stuck.

Spamfield moved to neighbouring Sandown the following year and continued to grow, and became the BMAAís major social event for the next ten years.

Itís less well known that he was voted onto Council in 2002, but Johnís served the BMAA here as well. In particular, heís brought his management experience to bear in the HR side, carrying out annual reviews with all the staff and rationalising the pay structure.

Since the demise of Spamfield, John has resurrected the Round Britain Rally in a format that accommodates the wide range of modern microlights and allows them to compete on equal terms.

But John has new family responsibilities and hasnít enough time to serve the BMAA in the way he would like.

We hope he will keep in touch with his very many microlighting friends, and that he knows how much we appreciate how much heís done for microlighting.
