Bannerdown News - From March 2014

A great evening at the Bannerdown AGM

The club AGM was held on Saturday night with the Steeple Ashton village hall packed with club members.

The evening started with the usual formalities of the AGM, a review of the previous year and an insight into what’s around the corner.   Andy Miller gave a short presentation on EASA Licensing changes and the annual Awards were given out.

The village pub, ‘The Longs Arms” catered and ran the bar for the evening.  A tasty lasagne and a lovely apple crumble for the hungry members.  They even made a special trip from the pub with some chocolate ice cream for one of the younger ones.

After dinner, a fantastic presentation by Guy Westgate on the challenges faced organising the Paralympics Flypast.  Aerobility and disabled pilot David Rawlins flew over the London Olympic Stadium to open the 2012 Paralympic Games. If you missed it – check out this website!   It shows just part of it.
