What are you planning? Where shall we go?

Skeleton program for this year

30/8 Evening : Arrivals + Traditional welcome drinks and BBQ

31/8 Morning : Arrivals
Afternoon : Wine tasting
Evening : Airfield Banquet

01/09 Morning : Lunch fly-out to Auch (or perhaps somewhere else this year)

Useful practical info

- Bordeaux-Léognan-Saucats (LFCS)

- Runway is 800m hard with all circuits to the east.

- The grass runway is only for based pilots

- Radio is blind calls in French only (usual proviso applies : see and avoid, and
don't attempt French radio if you don't feel you can do it safely).

Fuel

- Avgas available at 2 € per litre.

- Payment is either by cash or by the "Revolut" phone app.

- The app is greatly preferred, as it avoids me having to carry around huge sums of cash.

Transport

For the modest contribution of 45 € per person for the whole weekend, I will provide all transport to and from the airfield/hotel via various means (car/minibus/uber etc).

As usual, this remains entirely optional, and I can also arrange a hire car for anybody who would prefer this.

Accommodation
I would suggest pilots reserve one of these three hotels :
1. IBIS Budget Villenave d'Ornon
2. IBIS Styles Villenace d'Ornon
3. Chalet Lyrique Gradignan

It would be great if all potential participants could drop me a line to contact(at)lingaero.com with reg and expected POB.

Best
James

I shall surreptitiously insert the event into the family wall calendar and let it quietly rest there for a while until someone notices. :whistle:

There is no way that I'm sharing a tent with Sengupta :lol:.
