ENTERTAINMENT will be provided by Wayne Macdonald on guitar and singing all the songs we know or at least should know.

Bring your spouse and members remember to talk about their interests.... they have heard all the gliding stories before.

Let's get family back into the club. Last minutes always welcome but advance notice GREATLY APPRECIATED.

Thanks on behalf of Cole Bishop

Or, if you have been curious, come for the Bronze Badge, introduction to cross-country at 09:30.

Those who've gone there will attest that there's no more satisfying form of gliding.
