Ponty 2020

Post by Twitcher » 23 Jan 2020, 10:46

Hi Shaun/Phil
It's all gone quiet since Shaun's phone call before Christmas. Has there been any progress in booking the dates for Ponty this year? Maybe I've missed something?

I'm going for definite as I missed last year sadly. Never flown there yet (no A) but always been so happy to just watch and chinwag! Praying for good weather for all the fliers.
Is there a build/theme for a certain model for this year?
Reminds me I need to contact Phil for some electronic gizmos.

For none BMFA achievement holders but competent flyers, I'll see what can be done.

Remember all pilots will need their CAA docs in order to fly as well as BMFA A minimum.

Cheers

Bummer! That's going to make it tricky for me, this year! Our Ukulele festival is on the 13th (don't ask!), new organisers this year, so quite a few things have changed!

I guess I *might* be able to make it on Sunday, but I wouldn't be able to load the car and leave until fairly late on Saturday. (I have to transport our disabled bass player, plus all his kit, to and from the festival!) Would probably be gone midnight before I would arrive at Ponty. Guess I could always drive up very early in the morning? I'll have to see nearer the time!
