    It's a nice one to get in the logbook :-) Flew over the other day and they've cut the grass in preparation; lets hope the weather plays ball!

    The strip is only there for two days of the year, but its better than some that exist for 365 days.
    I flew in to it a couple of years ago in glorious weather.

    I'd settle for the glorious weather bit for this weekend but it doesn't look very promising at the moment!

    The forecast is changing all the time, at the moment the chance of a quantity of rain seem to be receding while the wind is reckoned to be building up. I'll go with John though, last time I flew in there the strip was in wonderful shape and a pleasure to fly into.

    I have mailed the man twice for arrival/landing instructions for this event without any response.

    Is there anyone who knows who is in charge, other than the guy at the e-mail address mentioned above ?

    mike hallam. (West Sussex).

    All's well, I just got his acknowledgement for PPR, & instructions on the way to me.

    Well, that was very good! Enjoyed it very much, and with the flying added, made for a great day out.

    Yes that was very pleasent and what a beautiful day to be flying, we also nipped over to one of my favourite airfields at Priory Farm. We had a great welcome at both strips, a very good day indeed.

    Great weather, made this a stunning event, beautiful strip with warm welcome and country fair as well. In the calendar again for next year.
