RAF @ 100 Phantomeers Reunion

2018 is a rather special year for the Royal Air Force.  The Centenary will be celebrated countrywide (Google RAF100 to get a flavour of the celebrations).  RAF 100 is about celebrating along with current serving personnel, veterans (like us!) and even Air Cadets.

Following on from previous Reunions (Warwick and Stratford) it was intended to organise another for March 2018 but that clashes with the Easter Holiday.  In the light of the Centenary a weekend in September 2018 (which is the final push for Wings Appeal et al) seems more suitable and, of course, we have raised large sums of money for RAFA at previous reunions.

Our reunion in 2014 was much enjoyed but poorly supported numbers-wise when compared to the previous one.  (Less than 100 people attended in 2014 which resulted in a financial loss.)

I am willing and able to organise next year’s “bash”, but on the following conditions:

  • A minimum number of 150 attending.
  • Venue is likely to be N Yorkshire or Lancashire (trying to be equal distance for most of us!)  However, RAF Scampton are expected to put on very large air show in Sept ’18 so perhaps Lincoln instead.  Feedback on this point would be greatly appreciated.
  • The venue will only be confirmed when the minimum attendance figure has been reached.
  • Ticket costs should be in the region of £60per person and monies must be paid by 31st Dec 2017.
  • A date for commencement of reservations/bookings will be advised but should be in a couple of months.  (Please, no monies yet.)
  • Refunds for cancellation by individuals cannot be guaranteed.  But full refunds will be issued in the event we fail to reach 150 ‘paid-up’ members as no contracts will have been signed until this figure is reached.
  • Surplus monies not spent on the evening function itself will be donated to the Wings Appeal.
  • Volunteers will be required to help with fund raising activities (many thanks to Steve Hanson for his energy and help at the last event).

Let’s have a great weekend together.  Swing those lamps, and bring your own sandbags!  It is 16 months away so people have to commit sooner rather than later in order for it to be a success.

Den, our Webmaster (who puts so much effort into our website) will try to keep everyone informed.
