Stop in either EIAB or EIBR on the way for a cuppa, or perhaps the hotel on EIIR is open for a snack on the way ? ?

I'll probably go EIWF - EIBT direct, then home through the islands, over Birr direction and then down through Kilkenny just to say "well". Should be a good day out.

Excellent lads,
James had a chat with the lady in Belmullet yesterday regarding the catering, so it is something like this:
No problem regarding the food, will be ready at 1pm sharp.
We have already confirmed 14 aircraft and will assume most will have 2 POB.
So if anyone else is coming along then reply to this thread and we can count you in in the catering numbers and attempt to be there for around 12:30.

Sligo also has the Arthur Wignall 25th anniversary on the Saturday so it may result in a few crews coming over, I am going up to that also on the Saturday and will pop up a notice for the Belmullet do the following day.

Looking forward to it.

Nice to meet you yesterday Jonkil in Kilkenny. If anyone is going from/via EIKK or EIBR with a spare seat they are looking to fill please get in touch. Bit too long of a journey by car.

Papa8 if you could shoehorn yourself in to the back of the Tecnam you're more than welcome :lol:.

I'll ask around EIWF and see if anyone else is heading up on Sunday for you.

Update..... Tuesday 21st April.

Long range weather looks OK for Sunday folks. Can I ask that we be on the ground for 12:30 please, in order to eat at the time agreed with the caterers in Belmullet golf club.... the lads at Belmullet are cutting the grass and will have A/G radio for us, lets make it a good show if we can boys.
Looking forward to meeting a few folk and adding faces to names.

If anybody has a spare seat, would they consider taking me along for the day? I thought I'd be busy for the weekend and hadn't planned on doing any flying Sunday, but plans have fallen through and now I have no airplane bookings.

Myself plus 1 other will pop along in the car if there is space we will have some food if not no panic.

Just had a quick poke at the weather for the weekend - it's not looking too good lads.

Is there a back-up weekend planned or will we just stuff it ?

Looks OK for Sunday, isolated showers around.
Should be fine for VFR flight, lets wait and see.
I can post an update on Saturday around 20:00 and call it then.
