I realise its still about a month away but is anyone planning to fly into Helidays at Weston Super Mare this year.

Lets hope we have the same weather as last year. The weather broke with tradition and was hot and sunny all weekend, better than the traditional rain.

Its always good going for the annual BBQ on the Saturday night for those staying over the weekend and meet up with fellow helitorquers.

Should be able to post on the thread when I hear what military is due this year.

Sounds like a good idea.

Haven't been to WSM for a couple of years.

It'll be like the good old days. BBQ is a lot of fun, and ending up in Scallys is mandatory of course!!!

If I make it down, be good to see you again TC.

So will you be down by road or in that white 206, still can't remember the reg. Only saw it two weeks ago at the grand prix

Sounds like I missed out on Scallys bar last year when i stayed there, however drinking then doing a night shift on security probably wouldn't be a good thing.

Hope you can make it TC

They only let me out on sunny days Rolling Eyes Very Happy

It's the weather init?:
WSM on a cold, rainy & windy weekend - doesn't bode well. Fingers crossed for sunshine eh?

N8040T is the reg Mart - looks like a UN helicopter Shocked Flies nicely enough though - and it's a BELL! (bloody EASA) Twisted Evil

I shall probably bethere from thursday evening as I'm taking my caravan and trying to get that in through the hoards of people on friday will be a bit of a nightmare.

If we are not doing night security this year, the I would be happy to help prop up any hotel bar.
