Hastings Dawn Visit and Frogley Cup

We had a very smooth running weekend with the last round of the Frogley cup here in Hastings. Thanks to all the people who flew in and to our members shaking off the frost while  cooking breakfast, or standing out on the freezing grid, or helping with anything in general. We had an excellent cooked breaky, a great turn out of aircraft, and lots of smiley faces.


(Dannevirke coming in for a 50)

Sadly we didn’t scoop up the nice big trophy but we made the Dannevirke Aero Club work hard for it, so you can all give yourselves a pat on the back.
