THE NEXT EVENT


As you will have seen in the 2017 AGM report there are some decisions to be made with regard to the 2018 Reunion.


The report states:


Reunion 2018 proposals.


The Committee propose that the following locations are considered:

a. Northern Ireland (the security situation is now permissive).

b. Malta.

c. Gibraltar.


Members are requested to 'vote' for one of the 3 by e-mailing Geoff Bakewell at gbakewell232@outlook.com


It is important that all association members place a vote for their favoured location in good time as whichever location is chosen it will require a good deal of planning to make it happen and to be successful.

Don’t put it in the pending tray - do it NOW.

Heads - Up!


23 June 2018:  The Association has been asked (and accepted in principle) to participate in a high profile event for the  “RAF 100 Event”, a celebration of the RAF in the North-East, at Durham. The exact details of our involvement are still in the melting pot but it looks to be a very interesting and exciting event. All you need to do at the moment is put this in your diary and when the details are firmed up I will post them here - so pop into the website from time to time to check up.
