UK vintage meeting

This may already have been posted but if not:- Steve Pionk is organising......


The British Vintage Hang Gliding Rally 2016

The objective is to create an informal get-together of vintage equipment, pilots and the curious

What constitutes vintage? Could be simply obsolete, could be of historical interest as a significant development, it's up to you. We want to create a social weekend of beer, wine and good company and showcase the history of British hang gliding.

Events under consideration are a Bamboo Butterfly Challenge; build your wings the 1970s way from 1970s appropriate materials, points and prizes for style and spirit and a bonus if it can leave the ground.

Best of show awards for particularly good examples of historical equipment.

Venue is still to be decided. This is not planned as a flying event for safety reasons but a venue with access to flying sites would be desirable. If anyone would like to volunteer as a regional representative to gather interest and even provide a venue we would like to hear from you.

Note: Dates changed to 10th-11th September to avoid the peak flying season. This makes it an opportunity to round off the season and wave your arms while making fast hang glider noises over a beer or two.

This sounds like a fun event. I especially like this part:

Please keep reminding us as the date approaches. I doubt that I can afford the trip, but maybe others can!!
