Good weekend but shame about the weather but there was still a good turn out.
Thanks to

Just wanted to say thank you to John, Martin and indeed all the elvington members for making us feel very welcome.

Despite the weather not playing ball. I still had a great weekend meeting you all and I look forward to the next time.

Geoff White.

Well it will be summer soon... then the rain will be warm. We were working out yesterday that it is about two years since we lost a full days flying due to inclement weather, and it had to happen on our open weekend. Murphy''s Law!
I just wanted to thank everyone who made long journeys and supported our first event. It is appreciated, and we hope we will be allowed to do it again. I also want to thank Martin and Ian Lees who did all the donkey work to organise the event, Bill and Hazel at the Marshall cafe who worked tirelessly to keep us fed and watered and all the rest of the guys who worked so hard over the weekend.
Regards,

John

Just a thanks to everybody who supported our spring fly in.
As john mentioned the weather was not on our side,but despite that
we raised £326.48 which will be donated to Wakefield Hospice where our
club member and friend Gary Edwards spent his last few days march this year.
Hope to see you all and more next year.

Rgds Martin Lees.
