    DRURIDGE BAY FLY IN VIDEO 2011

    Thanks to all who turned up to Druridge and especially to the lads from Ince
    Blundell who did us proud. Sorry for the short notice but it was probably the
    last chance we could have put this together this year. Thanks to the Druridge
    Country Park staff who provided most of the logistics. Also thanks to the local
    Northern Aviators who volunteered (or press ganged) to help.

    We raised a total of 242.57 for the Forces Childrens Trust. I have spoken to
    Denny Wise who founded the charity, who was thrilled at your efforts and thanks
    you all for your support.

    His charity provides support for children whos' parents have been killed or
    suffered life changing injuries whilst serving in the Armed Forces. I can assure
    you that the work his charity does provides a great deal of support to the
    widows who have lost their husbands and gives the children a little bit of
    happiness which means a great deal.

    I have spoken to the farmer and he seems keen to let us do this again next year.
    The venue is fantastic and there are all sorts of possibilities to have a fun
    event next year for all types of aircraft(even hovercraft).

    Hopefully we can do a Beach BBQ and have a few beers on an overnighter!

    Can I appeal to the local Flyers not to land in the field uninvited and without
    permission in the future as I dont want to ruin our good relationship with all
    concerned, especially the farmer.

    In reality the field is over 700metres long and could easily cope with GA types
    who like a bit of strip flying.
