Everyone loves a birthday party, especially when you’re on the invitation list. And you are on it!
A working group has been planning ways to celebrate the happy occasion. Yes, it will be a gift from ourselves to ourselves, but we want to involve the general public as well.
We’re considering several ideas, and some of them are in the organising phase, or in an advanced stage of readiness as you read this.
So let's start with having… a party? Oh, yes! A Founders 50th Anniversary Dinner event is currently being planned for Saturday 29th September 2018 along with a special aviation-themed photographic competition on display on the night. Tickets are now ON SALE for £40 PER PERSON. Limited number available (speak to Des).
Some exclusive merchandise such as a 50th Gold Pin, T-Shirts and Caps are already on sale at the Hangar, plus a coffee table photo book is being written by Stephen Riley and Stephen Hegarty to look back over the Society's history.
The 50th anniversary working group (so far!) is:
Stephen Riley (chair), Des Regan, Garry MacDonald, Stephen Hegarty, John Weir, Alan Chowney and Mark J. Cairns. Talk with any of us at the monthly meetings, come down and see us at the hangar on Saturdays, or put your ideas to any member of the UAS' Trustees management committee that you know. We’re all eager to listen!
