Thread: PSSA Gliding Events 2019
19/08/2016 22:00:22

Some great pictures here chaps and chapesses, keep 'em comin!

OK Mark, you're added, which makes 21 confirmed so far.

Ive booked it for 8:15 pm, X 25 people and have paid the deposit..... so we're going!

I'll leave this thread running until the 5th September, and then there will be a new thread on which you simply put your name, and choice of food off the menu, best to give a second choice option of mains, and if possible, the preferred dessert if required.

Mr Kettle do I take it that yourself and Helen are partaking in our evening soiree?

Nice shot - was this one of Shonas?

18/08/2016 22:33:22

Great pics Shona! - Crikey, I need to get those aileron pushrods concealed on the Spit blush

19 confirmed so far, so already past my original estimate of 12 - 15

I've spoken with the venue today, and will be calling in over the next couple of days to pay the deposit which will secure our booking

Looks like its shaping up to be good turnout, thanks for all those who have committed so far

I'll start a separate thread a bit closer to the time, for peeps to declare what food they would like - as a reminder, here's a link again to the menus, so you can get an early idea of whats likely to be on offer.

Please DONT post your choice here, I'll start a new thread, or this general thread will get clogged.

I can recommend the somewhat different style of Pizzas - a bit of a change to the norm in pizza world.

MENU ( this may change slightly before our meal but Ill keep you all informed )

TBH Ive only visited twice and the last time was after a refurb and I thought it was quite nice.
Its more about finding somewhere that will accomodate us all together. I do use trip advisor and have found that some peeps spout tosh. 😊

September meeting 2016 - food and drink.

We've had a few snags over the years with the after event catering arrangements, not least places being rammed with no space for all of us to eat together. I've found a decent prospect having eaten there last night, and had a chat with Phil, so here's our proposal.

"The Mulberry" at Conwy Marina. ( interesting history to its name incidentally laugh )

Approx 15 - 20 minutes from the Orme, plenty of parking - with overspill park too, large room upstairs in the "Loft" lovely views over the Marina, and they will seat us all together. Reasonable prices, and rather good choice and quality.

HOWEVER - I need to put a £30 deposit down, and therefore need a committment from those who will attend.

Furthermore, parties of 8+ ( Ive told 'em we will probably number 12 -15 covers ) will have to submit their food choice upfront in order that the establishment can ensure their stocks.

I'll take food orders off you later this /next week.

Here's the place, and menu is shown in a PDF.

Please decide if you will be participating, and POST HERE to confirm ASAP.

Timbo.

Hi folks, and let me firstly add my thanks to Phils summary above..... we were truly blessed with a great days flying, and I was especially chuffed if not a little embarrased to have won my first ever PSSA prize for best flown piston powered model. The ex IC S/A Spitfire revelled in the smooth coastal lift and Im sure the recntly added surprise gizmo of a sound generator for engines and gyns had no influence on those who voted

Great Pictures Chris

Right, so time to sort a few things for our next meeet as mentioned above by Phil. Food and Drink.

See the new Title below.....

( It will appear in about 30- mins so please wait )

Real shame that Dave - looked an interesting project ;-(

Ive just received one of those sound modules, and fancy putting it in a Vampire, foamy jet ( glider ) - anyone know if there are jet "sounds" available, or if you can add your own sound files somehow ?
