Lasham Gliding Society Winter Talks 2017/18

Lasham Gliding Society Winter Talks 2017/18

All talks are held on Saturday evening, will usually commence at 6pm and are held in the Brown Elephant briefing room. Although most of the events are free of charge it is customary that a silver collection is made at the end of each talk for the Lasham Trust or other deserving cause of the speaker’s choosing.

Dinner will be available in the restaurant afterwards. Booking is advisable at thegoldenglider@outlook.com or 01256 384910. The bar is also available to members and visitors at all times.

3rd March – A talk by Steve Markham on his 7/8th scale replica Spitfire aircraft. Steve lives locally to Lasham and has built and operates his Spitfire from a private strip near RAF Odiham.

10th March – Hamilcars Horsas and Hotspurs as well as some others. Glyn Bradney will tell us about military gliding operations and military gliders from 1940 to 1945.

17th March – A talk on Army aviation by our General Manager, Gavin Spink. Before he became GM at Lasham, Gavin was a senior pilot in the Army.

24th March –A classical guitar recital by Jane Nash and some friends. Jane is a member at Lasham and a highly accomplished guitar player. If you did not manage to hear her play last year, this is one not to be missed!

31st March – A talk by Hugh Browning on Gliding accidents and their avoidance. Many will know of Hugh’s excellent work on safety in winch launching and aerotows. This is an update on some of the other valuable work that Hugh has been doing.
