Kent go gliding, again! 10th July

Recommended Posts

Following on from last years great event (link) I've just visited Kent Gliding Club and they're happy to have us back. 

 

Thursday 10th July, 5:30 onwards. 

 

£23 for a winch launch, approx £70 for a winch and an aerotow (subject to interest).

 

We've also been offered use of their BBQ onsite so bring meat. I'll bring a couple of bags of charcoal :D

 

Flying list:

 

1. BIbs

2. Laura

Non-fliers are welcome but we'll rib you all evening for being too scared.

 

Laura taking off....

 

 

Me, being awesome :D

The £70 option is for a winch AND an aerotow ?!? If so, from what I recall of last year, that seems like incredible value.

Just need to check the date in my diary but I'm a tentative yes for now.

I assume we'll do a pub meal afterwards again ?? Same pub as before (The Plough Inn in Stalisfield) as the food/beer was VERY good ??

I think so, it was similar to that last year wasn't it?

 

Would you prefer the pub to doing our own BBQ?

From what I remember of last time, and from the previous thread, a winch was £22.50 and an aerotow was £60-£70 so if they're offering a winch AND an aerotow for a total of £70 then that sounds like a no brainer to me !!

 

Sorry - I missed your comment on the BBQ in your first post. That sounds like a great plan :)

Count me in. Was great fun last time. I'll go for the aerotow this time though as I think I only got one circuit off the winch last time.

Count us in as well - fantastic time last year.

 

BBQ sounds a great idea - I'd better bring some tinnies for after the flying  :thumbsup:

 

Cheers

jokey videos aside, I think that would scare me a little to be honest no engine and all that :P

It does have wings, which are far more important to flying.

 

That video is epic, very, very funny :lol:

Any more please? I'm not sure they'll get the gliders out for 5 people...

Bib's, Is this a forum only thing ? as I could ask some of the guys from my model flying club if they are interested to make up the numbers.

 

Martyn :welcome:

Hi Bibs,

 

A few of my mates were interested but unfortunately none of them can make this date.

I was hedging my bets and not committing to this for some unknown reason and today I found out why...

My 99 year old grandfather died last night - he emigrated to Australia at the age of 95.

So it turns out I'll be in Oz in a couple of days and will miss out on the gliding AND the TLF BBQ :(

 

Sorry folks :(

I'll call the club tomorrow and cancel this. It's unfair for them to staff the club for 5 of us. Sorry to those who wanted to come.
