Editors comments:

It is with regret and sadness that I have to report the distressing news of the passing away of our very own club member John Woollams. I am sure I speak for the whole club in passing on my deepest sympathy to John’s family and friends at this very sad time.

On a lighter note it’s heartening to know that John was able to fly right up to and including his eighty second year.

With winter finally loosening it’s grip there’s photos a plenty in Club Chat.

In Safety Matters Chris Holmes shows the importance of setting up a good base leg, with some equestrian shenanigans thrown in for good measure in this informative and entertaining video.

Tim Jones has submitted the rules for this years KHPA competitions.
