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.

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

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...

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.
