Hi everyone, this is the regular Thursday posting to let you know what is coming up in the near future. My apologies for the shortness but I am on the Jaca expedition at the moment.

Jaca expedition
Like the uk we have suffered with heavy rain for a couple of days. Unlike the UK we can enjoy our time off in one of the most beautiful regions of Spain. Normal service will be resumed today.
Your team this weekend is:
Saturday: Simon Adlard, Walter Baumann, Geoff Dailey, Liz Adlard
Sunday: Chris Alldis, Denise Hughes, Geoff Dailey, Dave d’Arcy
Forthcoming events
Midsummer recruitment event 30 June
Last year we ran an open day and combined it with a “longest day”. This year we are going for a more targeted event. The marketing team will be publishing the method and the purpose shortly but in the meantime can I please ask instructors, launch directors and winch drivers who would be willing to help me on that day to get in touch with me directly. Our aim is to be able to fly people all of the day so we will need instructing and winch cover. We won’t be doing a dawn or dusk flight so you don’t have to worry about having to get up too early!

Wood week July 7 -14
Prepare your glider for 5kt winds, 5 000 ft cloudbase or just a week of gentle westerlys. Simon Adlard has very kindly agreed to run the week. So please call or email the office with your interest.
Task week August 18 – 27
Please ensure this is also in your diary, we have better weather last year and I am confident this trend will continue into this year. The CFI will be announcing more details of the structure but I can guarantee that if you are early cross country then this is the week for you.
