Induction for new pilots form 7.30 to 8pm ;
From 8pm
Ked Shayer is a pilot with around four years flying experience who managed a few good xc flights last year. He'll give a talk on xc tips from the beginner xc pilot's perspective, trying to highlight a few things that he's learned about flying xc in the UK. The talk is primarily aimed at pilots looking to get into xc or turn 10 km flights into 50 km flights, but Ked would be keen to have some more experienced pilots attend to add their views

To those planning to attend the SHGC bash this weekend, it is being postponed for one week due to the rain and gusty winds forecast for Saturday evening. The Summer Bash will now be taking place on Saturday 10th September, from 5pm onwards. There will still be a hog roast, beer, plenty of space for camping and the all important roaring fire.

Andreus will cook us fabulous food. Mark will stoke the fire, tunes will be played, beer and wine drunk on a balmy Autumn evening.
