Lasham Gliding Society Winter Talks 2019/20

Lasham Gliding Society Winter Talks 2019/20

We have arranged another really good season of Saturday evening events again this winter with something offered on most Saturday early evenings. Most events will be free of charge, unless stated otherwise and you do not need to be a member at Lasham to attend.

Non-members are also most welcome. Some dates and talks might change and some are not yet fully arranged but listed below is the current situation. Updated lists will be issued as the season progresses.

Saturday talks will usually commence at 6pm and will be held in the Brown Elephant briefing room at Lasham. 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.

Hosting team will be Nicki Marchant, Morag Saunders, Debbie Scholey, Chris Gibson, John Delafield and myself. We hope to see you at some of these events.

Lasham Gliding Society’s address is Lasham Airfield, Avenue Road, Basingstoke,

GU34 5SS. Telephone 01256 384900
