Thanks very much to Mike Bird, not only for his fascinating and highly amusing insight into his derring dos all over the world, but also for his incredibly generous gesture of donating the proceeds from selling signed copies of his book, 'The Playtpus Papers' to the Lasham Trust. Through his kind efforts, we raised a whopping £105 last Saturday!
This coming Saturday, 14th March will be the last of our winter talks season for the time being. The following week, 21st March we had been due to have a talk by Chris Marren about the Zulu conflict but this has had to be deferred to a later date because the Society's AGM will be held on that date.
Meanwhile, this coming Saturday 14th March, Glyn Bradney will be delivering a talk on British Gliding up until the end of World War 2. Glyn has done a lot of research on this subject and has written a book about it. It will be interesting to know a little about what has brought gliding to where it is nowadays.
As usual, the talks will be in the Brown Elephant briefing room and will start at 6pm. Dinner in the restaurant will be available afterwards and will be waiter service so those who wish to dine should make reservations with Matt or Dan on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01256 384910. As ever, both members and non-members are very welcome to attend.
Hope to see you there!
