Hi everyone,  this is the regular Thursday posting to let you know what is coming up in the near future and give you highlights of the last week.

Last week:

The bank holiday weekend was superb (better than I forecast) with a lot of launching and many cross country flights.  Everyone had as much flying and training as they wanted and thanks again to David Brown for doing a fabulous job on the winch.

The evening courses are working well,  Mark Williams went solo and consolidated it at the weekend by converting to the K8.

Guy Hartland completed his C instructor training module at the weekend at Hus Bos.

Weekend outlook:

The weather for the weekend looks flyable and we have slots available on both days.  If you need a check or you want to develop your flying in any way then book a slot with the office.  A volunteer instructor and Guy Hartland are on duty on Saturday and Steve Foster and Charles Carter are on duty on Sunday.

Forthcoming events:

The club calendar is a good way of checking what Is coming up, if you haven’t already got a copy then ask in the office.  We are getting ready to produce the next one so can I ask you to submit your pictures for consideration in the new calendar.  Email them to me or the office directly.

In addition can I put out a plea for photographs for the web site gallery.  The purpose of the gallery is to show visitors what they can expect when they come to the club,  grounds, hangar, accommodation, bar etc.  Please think to yourself what would I need to see before I arrive and I would be very grateful if you would send the pictures to me or Sarah Platt (see website for email address).

Flying Taster day 11 June.  Bring a friend along or just come along to help, this is going to be a very busy day and is aimed at gaining new members and reminding past members of what they are missing.  The advertising for this has been intense and we are expecting a lot of visitors and past members,  please come along to help, it is in the interests of your club.

Steve Male is running an Aerobatics course week beginning the 18th of  June.  If you are interested then contact the office first and we can send you details.  Martin tells me this is filling up quite quickly so I suggest you book now.

We have sides!  The cladding is on and we are well on track.
