There are new people running the Carpenters Arms in Fangfoss- the food is pretty good and reasonably priced.
Sally the new licensee will welcome us, says they'll have a Christmas menu on by then, as well as their usual menu.
I've made a provisional booking and, as always, partners and guests are welcome.
Let me know if you're coming email@example.com so I can give Sally numbers and then she'll reserve a part of the pub for us.
There will be a Raffle so please bring suitable prizes.
Also, we'll have Flying Videos, an aerial after-dinner speaker, presentation of the Club trophies and fun and games.
Hope to see you there,
In the meantime, fly high and land safely,
The Cayley Annual BBQ on the 21st September was a great success. A big thank you to Sue Berzins, Richard Sewell and Harry Postill for help with the set-up and tidy up.. Read more about the day below.
The club are talking to the RSPB and Nat England about an amicable Code of Conduct for paragliding at Speeton/Bempton.
The talks look promising but are not finalised and the nesting season is upon us. Until we reach an agreement, best not to fly there.
But if pilots do choose to fly that part of the coast, please be very aware of possible disturbance to nesting birds and maintain a height of at least 500 feet asl to the East of the Speeton take-off. And please do NOT overfly the bird sanctuary. If you have any questions please contact a club site officer and refer to the sites guide.
The Sir George Cayley Sailwing Club was started in 1975 by a group of enthusiasts in the Yorkshire area, and has carried on providing an environment for like minded people to get together and partake in the joy of free flight. Although relatively small in comparison to our surrounding clubs, we provide the same level of coaching and guidance to new pilots fresh out of training school.
