And so we did, despite the poor viz, three bouts of drizzle, strongish wind and frustratingly slow-to-clear cloud.
We flew no visitors, but entertained and chatted with a good number, who responded to our call to visit. We sold 12 vouchers to prospective members, some of whom booked flights for Bank Holiday Monday. The last time we had a no-fly Open Day we had our best ever uptake of new members, so let’s hope it happens again.
The place was abuzz with talk, demos of static gliders, food and drink (non alcoholic of course!) and ended with a super big meal provided by Julie and John for about 20 members who stayed to unwind.
It was great to have such huge membership support for such a day. Its one of the things people comment about when they visit, as well as the friendliness of the natives.
Next year it’s our turn for a good (but not too good of course) weather day!
