Lasham Gliding Society Winter Talks

Lasham Gliding Society Winter Talks

Saturday 5th March – Please note changed date. A talk on improving your personal performance by Dr. Al Nunn. Al is a prominent member at Lasham and has done a lot of academic research on slowing the ageing process. Something of increasing importance and relevance to many of us!

Saturday 12th March – Please note changed talk. – Colin Hales will tell us about his homebuilt KR2 aircraft and how he he is flying it around the world together with his adventures so far encountered. Thanks to Afandi Darlington for arranging this one.

Saturday 19th March – Lasham Gliding Society’s Annual General Meeting is planned for this day. This event is for members only.

Saturday 26th March – Easter Saturday – To finish off the winter talks season, a classical guitar recital by Jane Nash and Steve Grant. Both are highly accomplished guitarists. Many members will know Jane, who is also a member. Steve is a mate who lives nearby. He’s not a glider pilot and very kindly played for us last winter. His recital was very well received and it will be a pleasure to hear them again. This event is subject to it not being a 500 day. I’m sure that the audience will understand if one of the players is a little late back from enjoying some early cross country.

All talks will take place at Lasham Gliding Society, Lasham Airfield, Avenue Road, Basingstoke, GU34 5SS.

Telephone 01256 384900. All will commence at 6PM. The exact venues will be notified nearer the time but most will be held in the Brown Elephant briefing room if it is available. As is customary, a silver collection will be made at the end of each talk for the Lasham Trust or other deserving cause.

As ever, dinner will be available in the restaurant afterwards, and it will be necessary to book on 01256 384910 or by e-mail to
