Thank you Michael for the heads up. I am pretty sure city's officials will not object the clubs stays there for the years coming because this parc project will take lots of time to take form. Also, the club could be integrated in the parc's activities or attraction; it could be a win-win project. The only danger would be coming from the ecologists who could argue the activities of the club put some species in danger. But many arguments could be used to counter this, for example the noise of the airplanes from Montreal-Trudeau and human activity in the parc. Lastly, the club could probably get some help from the city to improve and maintain its premises.

Best wishes to all,

Field within a park

If its of any use, at least three of us members are also members in South Florida in two great clubs that reside and live harmoniously within very large Nature Parks, both happen to be with pave runways.



Good luck and thanks for all your efforts!

Hello Dan,

Suspect I do not know you. But I have properties in Boca Raton, where I am also a member of https://www.palmbeachrc.com.
I am yet to meet any Montrealer's at the club, but it is closed until Jan. 6th, I suspect due to Airforce One traffic. A very welcoming Club, even accepting my MAAC at par with AMA. I will be back in Montreal around the 16th January. Maybe I see you there.

I became a member of Brossair shortly before a provincial commission CPTAQ decided to close the property to Brossair. The CPTAQ held a meeting in Sept. 2019 where about 25 members of Brossair were in attendance and the interim report has been sent and the CPTAQ has decided that we cannot return to the field. They said they don’t have to expla

In January, after a long holiday break, WIMAC contact continued with officials at City of Pierrefonds and they have been supportive and sympathetic to our situation. However, they have finally said that they are unable to deal further with the fate of our existing outdoor field and have committed to put us in touch directly with the appropriate officials at the City of Montreal.

We will post further developments as they arise.

Merci pour vos efforts!

Peut-être que les médias aimeraient faire un petit reportage sur notre situation ?
