B & B somewhere around the locality. There will be a few members running people to B & B's if needs be. Ohh, we do really like the slapping, but we just let it on that we dont Laura.

Got a call from nfc. Someone needs our aeroplane for a flight test today. That will delay us a few hours if we cant find another aircraft. Anyway we should be there at the latest 7pm, but then we have to get a taxi to b&b in tramore to get the room key. Ye better keep 3 burgers and 3 beers for us or all hells gonna break loose. :twisted:
Happy Landings everyone.

ah, home safe and sound. Thanks to Ceatach for the excellent flight there and back. Thanks to Philip for the extra weight in the back :D

Nice to meet alphaLaura, Flyer1, pilot and other member, sorry but cant remember names.
BBQ was great if a little on the cremated side.

All in all a great Fly-in.

I'm in severe requirement of sleep. Nearly falling asleep trying to write this. Good fly-in, better then expected turn-out. Hopefully with continued support we can make it even better next year. Without the cremated grub, but with properly cooked grub.

Thanks to all for attending, looking forward to seeing you all again at next years BBQ.

Was a brilliant night, i am thinking of taking up crimating things, I put a little bit of wood on the fire and everyone was eating blacks balls of "stuff", i began to get worried when the chicken wings looked like sausages!!. Ah they werent that bad. Thank you everyone for coming, was a great day. I came out with burns from the BBQ that night when we were sitting around the fire. Very impressed with the microlights, looked great.

Thanks to all involved in organizing the fly-in bbq. Nice to meet up with some guys from the forum in person. I'll have pictures posted soon. And I think there will be a full trip/event report in the flying in ireland mag in the coming months so watch out for that.
Sorry to any campers we might have woken-up early this morning. We had to get the aeoplane back to NFC.

It brought a whole new meaning to flame grilled though you must admit. Sorry to anyone who heard clattering at some ridiculous time in the morning. I can clarify it wasn't I that was responsible. heh. Anyways, see you all again at next years BBQ.

Thanks to everyone who came to the BBQ - it was a great turnout and lovely to see so many aircraft parked up on the grass. Especially that RV6. Yum.

Next year, Andrew will be kept at a safe distance from the crematorium. As mentioned, great to put some faces to the forum members here. Apologies again to Andy if I contributed significantly to the nausea o_O
Yes, and, I accidentally walked into one of the BBQ's at about 3am. Sorry if it woke anyone.
The hardest thing about flying is knowing when to say no.

In case anyone else was wondering - Ceatach is Irish for Keith. It's one of very few Irish words I know... :)
