Open day
Thanks to everyone who helped on the open day. As Sarah posted last week it was a terrific day and a significant part of our strategy to increase membership. I do hope this becomes an annual fixture.  Interestingly a lot of the interest from the public came from the poster at the club entrance.

Progress has been rapid as you will have seen from Dave’s postings . The next milestone is the internal carpentry and  electrics.
The caravan park road is ready and the trunking is complete. The next step will be the electric stations and relocating the caravans

New members
William Brewis has rejoined. William served the club for many years as an instructor and it is wonderful to have him back.

The landrovers are starting to give concern and the committee is seeking ways to address this. They are part of our launching system, if we can’t retrieve quickly then we can’t launch quickly.  Julian Fack and Dave Crowson are working on a replacement strategy.

The accommodation block has a leak and we are still trying to get an affordable replacement which will stand up to our conditions.

Forthcoming events
Weekend ahead
The number 1s for this weekend are Alasdair Lewis and Mark Sanders. The building ridge of high pressure looks good so get ready for some good flying. This time of the year, because of the longer hours, we can accommodate more flights in a day.

Aerobatics week
This is now full and oversubscribed. Please keep your eye on your calendar and the web rota for up and coming events to ensure you get a place.  The course week beginning 27 of June is also filling up.

Please can I remind everyone of the Olympian event on the 9 th of July.  Once again we seek help on the field to make this the fantastic event we have become famous for.
