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.
It only takes two things to fly:--- airspeed and money.

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.
The hardest thing about flying is knowing when to say no.

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

Cheers

You pass this way but once, there is no such thing as normal. There is you and the rest, now and forever. Do as you damn well please or you could end up being a pot-bellied, hairless boring old fart.

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.

Jon
