A Day to Remember

Saturday 28th May 2022 was a very special day. After an imposed break of two years due to the pandemic, our club was again able to hold its Fly In and Family Barbecue at Kirkistown and what a day we had! Blessed with glorious sunshine and a refreshing breeze (it was quite windy!), club members and their families and friends enjoyed a day out to remember. Accompanied by music tracks from Colin Barnes sound system, ace pilots such as Mike Brown thrilled with superb aerobatics and jet turbine powered high speed passes. The rest of us enjoyed flying our usual modest repertoires and everyone landed safely.
The undoubted star of the show was the fabulous barbecue. Tony Barnes lit the coals early in the day and was soon providing tasty burgers and sausages. These were accompanied by lovely soft baps and an impressive array of side salads and all the usual burger accompaniments and sauces freely available on a help yourself basis. Many made the return journey to the top table for refills!
Entertaining flying and terrific food contributed greatly to the day but it was the lovely relaxed atmosphere and friendships formed that became the abiding memory for many. Same again next year please!
