Captain's Newsletter - 7 August 2022

Well how time flies. Here we are in August This time next week my Wing Walk will all be over. It's just hitting me now what I have let myself in for!

Several people have expressed an interest in coming to watch - Address is:-Damyns Hall Aerodrome Ltd, Aveley Rd Upminster RM14 2TN. My arrival time is 1.30 pm, however my flight time could be up to 3 hours later than that. It is also weather dependant but the forecast is looking good. Apparently there is a bar on site - which I will be hitting when it's all over!!!

Hopefully I will still be here to write about it next week!!

Thank you again to everyone who has donated. I have now raised more than £6000 for the hospital. Still room for more at the Justgiving page at the bottom of this  letter.

We had a fantastic day at Lakeside Lodge Pidley on Thursday for the Kelland Pairs Trophy. A big thank you to Hazel who organised the whole day. The course was longer than Chesfield but thoroughly enjoyable. Weather was perfect. Company as always was a pleasure. Food was amazing. 

Well done to the successful ladies:-

Nearest the Pin for Handicaps 25 and under Marica, over 25 Alayne 

Longest Drive for Handicaps 25 and under Annette G, Over Handicap 25 Sangeeta

2nd Place in competition  Nicola A ( last year's winner) and Alayne  49 points

1st Place Julie R and Jacqui Hard with a staggering 50 points

Well done ladies

There was an extra trophy this year - Kathy's Katastrophe

You may remember that last year I broke the Kelland Trophy. I managed to salvage a small glass ball and had it mounted. It seemed appropriate that this should be presented to the individual/pair who were basically plonkers of the day.

The clear winners for this were Rogie and Mandy. One of their balls went "in the lake". They could see it so made a human chain to try and retrieve it. One tried in front then the other. After a few minutes they realised that in fact "the lake" was green and in fact terra firma!!!! They walked up to to and retrieved. it. Plonkers of the day!
