Club BBQ 24 July Postponed till 7 August

Ref Club BBQ Postponed……To Sat 7 August

Dear members and invited guests, due to our despicable, unreliable British weather we are sadly postponing the BBQ, Flying and competitions day to,  Sat 7 Aug.  Our original weekend, this weekend, looks like a complete washout with thunderstorms.  Not ideal for any outdoor activity!  The following weekend does not appear to fare much better either.  After that, the long range forecasts become vague, mixed and more unreliable.  Even the Met office stating Low confidence in its own weather forecasting.   So we will try again on Sat 7 Aug, which brings new issues as the landowner may be crop cutting, which could affect available flying time………… A hundred problems for every solution…….

Believe me, there is no one more hacked off than myself after planning this for weeks and living with a dining room full of equipment, generator, extension leads, Music Speakers, simulator, raffle prizes, food and drink etc. ready for the event.  The food and drinks have been purchased, the food is currently stored in a local schools freezers so have a few weeks grace on that.

The decision to postpone has not been made lightly.

Our Chef will still be available to cook.

I sincerely hope you all will still be able to attend too.
