Just wondering if anyone went to it - younger forum members can move on swiftly!

Was prize money a regular feature in competitions 40 odd years ago or was this a one-off I wonder?  I do remember that there were quite a few model gliders on display at Lasham during a full size vintage rally some years later so perhaps these events carried on for a few years?

(From the later event - my daughter (pictured inspecting the Kirby Kite) has a 17 year old

daughter herself now!)
