CLUB NIGHT FLY and BBQ

Next Friday 16 November we have a visit by Cub Scouts followed by a Club Night Fly and BBQ
 
The Cubs will be there from 6.30pm to 8.30 pm
 
We would like some assistance particularly if you have a buddy box setup and/or FPV setup. Or just help with guidance and demonstrations.
 
We plan to  break them up into the usual 4 stations:
– Chuck gliders
– Buddy Box
– FPV Demos (with cubs in goggles)
– Simulator 
Its great fun introducing the hobby to the next generation, so why not come early and help out or just fly and give them something to look at!
 
Once darkness descends we will start the CLUB NIGHT FLY and BBQ.  Any suitable model equipped with lights is welcome.  Hope tho see you there!
