I wish to express my sincere thanks to the Committee who on my retirement from the club most generously gave me at our Annual Dinner, a continuing honorary MGC membership and a 10 year membership award. I truly appreciate them I have always felt that it is a privilege to be a member of the MGC because I got so much from it, not just the flying of some fantastic gliders but all the help and friendship too. Many of you are aware that I’m a two time member, I first flew with the VMFG down at Berwick and was sent solo down there by Alan Patching (7/2/1965). I had never lost the desire to fly so it was a wonderful surprise for me when, after being away for 40 years, I was once again able to do my flying training with Alan Patching, I must be his longest pupil These recent years were full of fun and great personal satisfaction for which I shall treasure. So to each and every one of you, Thank you.
See you on the Flight line.
