19.45 16 Feb It would appear that I have been a little
remiss and neglected my Administrator
duties and missed the fact that 3 new
members have been waiting to be accepted
on to the site so without further ado please
welcome Joe Relf (AF), Bill Beams (Prop)
and Ian Davidson (El). Please accept my
apologies for the wait. ( In my defence when
I go on the site and see no "action" I don't
tend to go any further in any depth and in
this case it all slipped me by. Doh!)
Changing tack it would appear that
momentum is building with regard to the
"Farewell to Halton" campaign and whilst
nothing has been stated publicly (to my
knowledge) August 20th 2020 has slated as
a possible date. Watch this space (assuming
someone on "FaceTwit" tells me!
20.45 02 Jan: Happy New Year to One & All.
Geoff Terry would like to put on
record his Thanks to Graham Breeze
for organising the 'mini-get together'
at the RAF Museum in December -
It all went very well by all accounts.
We need to get our 'Thinking caps'
on for 2020, our 50th Anniversary
09.30 23 Sept: Just a quick line to say a big
"Thankyou" to Geoff Terry for
organising Saturdays weekend get -
together in Cambridge and at Duxford
for the airshow. It appears that the only
thing that failed was out of their control
with the public transport system letting
those doing the airshow show down.
That said the evening was brilliant with
Geoff, John (A/F), John (Prop) and Paul
dragging bemused partners along plus a
very brave Bob who came all the way from
Spain on his own just for the night.
The food was good and the company
was even better and we all came away
saying we must do this some more,
(Thinks; Haven't we heard that before??!)
Once again, Cheers Geoff.
17.00 13 Aug: Interest seems to be growing for the
Duxford Airshow option on 22nd Sept.
Geoff Terry is ram-rodding this and so
far we have around 8+ and some partners
for an evening meal in a local Beef Eater
in Cambridge. If this appeals then please
respond on the Forum page. (Some
partners are only doing the meal part-
dealers choice). Geoff would appreciate
numbers for the meal booking sooner
rather than later
If you intend coming then you will need
to obtain your own ticket(s) for the show
and arrange your own accommodation if reqd.
20.15 25 July: As some of you are aware Geoff Terry
has decided that due to insufficient
numbers for the Manchester get-
together,due in the main to holidays,
then another idea is needed, namely
the Battle of Britain Air show at
Duxford on Sat 22nd September.
The idea is for a meeting there for
those who may be interested.
Tickets have to be bought on-line in
advance and cost £29.50 for adults.
(Doesn't appear to be an 'Old F***ts
Please DON'T buy a ticket just yet,
as the response needs to be gauged
first, plus, once numbers are known
then we can try and arrange something
for the evening.
A quick reply would be appreciated
using this forum.
(Partners would be welcome.)
20.40 08 July: Geoff Terry (Ex Oxford Flight) is
looking for any like minded souls
who would be interested in a 'mini-
reunion'/get together in Manchester
over the w/e of 14th/16th Sept
centred around the RAF100 Anniversary
Any one interested can post onto the
Guestbook on this site. CANX
19.50 08 Jun: Not much to say other than thanks
to Nick for renewing the domain name
and to those who have offered to chip
in and help with the cost.
