Please arrive before 6pm, especially if you want a cuppa and would like to get the paperwork and briefing out of the way. We appreciate it if you can confirm if you are flying beforehand (via the mailing list), but it may be possible to fit you in on the day. 

To glide is £35 per person flying, and you can have a second flight for just £15, weather and light permitting. We are also hoping to have a BBQ with a selection of foods to suit all tastes toasted by Ben, so have your fingers crossed for more sun.
