There was no shouting from the organizer if things did not go his way, no making someone look small in front of his piers when things didn't go too well for him (haven't we all been there?). In my many years of experience I have had the good fortune to attend many flying meetings. I would say that this one ran by Ray was the friendliest most professionally organized yet.
Well done Ray, and thanks to Chris for giving us the use of his land, Mandy for the delicious bakes that came round every morning and afternoon. Thank too to my close friends who lugged my planes about as well as their own, as I was somewhat incapacitated with a gammy leg and- oh! and thanks to all who helped retrieve my 1/4 scale ASW28 from that bl--dy tree.!! Ter.

What a great weekend although Pam & I were only able to come on the Sunday, probably the best day.
Thanks so very much for Mandy's splendid cookies, a really nice addition to a perfect day..
Lets hope the Sept do is as good

Chris and Pat are amazing hosts who love us being there (and all their family and friends at the same time for that matter) and cannot do more for us. That combined with the fact that the attendees all get on well together make it such a happy and calm atmosphere. In fact some people hardly flew, preferring to just sit in the sun and enjoy the ambience. We had 4 or 5 new attendees this time and they fitted in well and seemed to enjoy it, which is nice, for without all you people getting on together, my job would be harder. In fact I don't really have a job other than arranging the dates.
We both had the best weekend and were truly saddened to have to come home, even though we were last to leave, and Chris told me to make sure we keep coming back (even one of the neighbours came round from their farm as a family to see what was going on and loved it).
Many thanks guys and gals and roll on September
Ray and Mandy
