    Ok Chaps
    Thought it best to put you all in the look over this one as soon as I was made aware .
    The date for next year will be pushed back into later in the year as there are major developments with Just Jane and this years winter servicing will mean that she will not be in one piece until the very end of April / beginning of May 2017 with this in mind I am thinking

    Easter is early (No Lanc )
    may bank holidays early ( possible lanc )
    May late bank holiday (will be difficult to fit in unless we want to share and have limited access .)


    So its looking like a possible date in July and August

    Watch this space chaps !

    ideas welcome
    also please let me know of potential clashes

    Date Set 19th August 2017

    Definitely try and make it whatever the date is. Fingers crossed it might even be T-shirt and sunroof weather.

    Oh yes! Camping Friday night would be awesome for me. Saves me having to book that little travel lodge for about 5 hours of sleep!

    I've just been going through the Event Photos section of the forum, starting way back on the first page. If my calculations are correct, wouldn't this years bomber meet be the 10th year of the meet? (2008-2017). Suprised it hasn't been mentioned..........or is that what the raffle is all about?[​IMG][​IMG]

    Correct sir 10th anniversary. But in order to ensure that other events don't get pushed out if the limelight like Leeming classic ford etc .. I'm not shouting 10th at this stage
    Prehaps it is time to shout about it more

    Can you put me down for a place Francis?
    I've got a VW show less than a mile up the road the next day too, hardly worth me going home.

    i will be there in the black beauty too !!!

    also for those that have been asking about hotels in skegness have been on the case and finally got it sorted, this date coincides with a major "bowls event" held annually so really had to pull the stops out, but finaly got it sorted, so if you need a decent hotel with good secure car parking just pm me and will sort it for you.

    cheers Nial

    There has been some cracking weather of late so long may it continue. Should be a good turn out and some good money raised both for charity and the museum.

    Update: Ok chaps I have sitting here at Bomber HQ ,Donation Cheques to the value of £175 to Prostate Cancer , £175 to Macmilan cancer support and a VERY LARGE donation which is to be distributed as follows , split between the charities mentioned above , A donation to the Actual Museum to help with the return of Just Jane to the skies .

    Raffle prizes : £1 per strip when you buy a strip you get a Ice cream voucher to redeem in the Naffi .
    First and Second: tours inside the Lancaster
    Third: £50 Burton power Gift voucher
    Fourth :A really nice Collection of Capri related professionals memorabilia and collectables.
    Fifth: Ao sized ( massive photo paper prints of Capri werks RS3100 capri's) thanks to our German Capri colleagues
    Sixth :A5 Post cards of the above
    Seventh :

    Usual rules : Cash on the gate to Clare and her Conscripted Team of meet and greet crew.
    Parking : if all goes to plan I hope to have Two Aircraft out so please be prepared to move around a bit early doors as I really don't want a capri run over by a Lancaster Bomber or a DC3 .
    Please follow the guide lines around health and safety AV Gas and fire don't mix well .
    Also its a drone free area due to being close to a air base and if it falls out of the sky
    We will endeavour to get you all in the shots so please keep and eye out and a ear open
    usual stuff ..
    Collectives , Mk1 , Mk2 Mk3 , Clubs , and interspersed with interesting combinations which are made up as we go along so if you spot an idea Tell us and lets make it happen ! NO Idea is a bad idea unless it involves something risky .

    Have a good time guys!
    I'm still waiting for the new ECU to turn up, so looks like I will be joining you next year instead .... SWMBO has already planned an 'alternative' day out as the car isn't ready [​IMG]

    We've never lost an airman on this mission, but there are enemies on the road. Drive like drivers, revel like revellers, and drip ice cream everywhere like your little sister.
    Oh, and somebody, please, put up a pic of Finn's security device, hopefully not one of those pieces of welded steel panties with a lock. :lol:
