August 3 @ 8:00 am - August 4 @ 5:00 pm
Now I appreciate that this is fairly short notice, but it would be nice to get a good initial turn out, because if it goes well then there is a strong likelihood of 3 or 4 weekends next year we can have for Aero-tows / GPS triangle / fly-ins etc. which I am happy to organise, now I no longer have the Scale Indoor Nationals to do.
The location is a private airstrip, like Milson, and Chris Jones from Milson has been very helpful in speaking on our behalf with good references.
The place is Sherlowe in Shropshire, very near to High Ercall (google maps ref 52.737785, -2.602407) or Postcode TF6 6LT) and you have to approach it from the High Ercall side as the lane from Cotwall Road (Telford side) is narrow and gated, which are sometimes shut. It should be large enough (although it is no Middle Wallop) as Bob flies his 1:1 Beech Baron Twin in and out of there.
The finance arrangements would be similar to Milson – optional, but say £10 a head into the charity bucket and it will go to the Air ambulance unless the owner wants a different charity – to be advised. I will take advice from Ray Watts & John Greenfield over what should go to the tug pilots for fuel etc.
So please let me know if you are able to make it, as I would like to have an idea of the level of support/numbers.
