This is a great opportunity to see our hangar and learn about the history of these iconic helicopters. The hangar is full of memorabilia and there will be chance to view video footage of the restoration process of both machines and the moment our Huey 509 was reunited with some of its original pilots from the Vietnam War.
This month after ten years as R.O. and eleven years looking after the regions website I decided to stand down as did my Deputy James Taylor. Many thanks James, and Julie for standing in at meetings and organizing some of the events for me. The new R.O. is Shirley Lynch who together with her husband Andy take part in many TVR organized tours and events as well as competing in sprints and hill climbs. I know Shirley will do a great job in the R.O. role for the region, Shirley is also taking over running the website.
Aintree was a disaster with the event being cancelled after the first timed run due to the track flooding.
Duncans first run was 58.36 , Bill Campions was 64.37, and mine was 63.55. Although very wet it was useful to see how the Toyo 888’s handled the standing water.
As only Anglesey remains we can now announce the results of this years events
The rules are to score there has to be at least 2 members of the region present.
The number of events to count is based on the person with the least events in which they have scored, and this year both Bill and Duncan have 4 such events.
In first place with a score of 116.9 is Duncan
In second is ME! ON 84.67
In third place is Bill on 83.88
As this is Bills first year I think it will be between bill and Duncan in 2017 Unless some new entrants (young whippersnappers) rock up!
Tickets are available on line now for £10 or pay at the gate £15 on the day. So far Bill Campion and I are going. the time table is below:
Will meet up at the Tickled trout at 8:15 and call in at the Lymm Truck stop at about 8:45 to 9:00 to see if anyone is there.
