Black Horse Annual Mince Meet – Great Missenden 01.01.14.
This year’s (or rather next) Helen & Len’s very popular Annual ‘Mince Meet’ will take place (weather dependent) on Wednesday 1st January 2014 – NEW YEARS Day (Flight Time to be confirmed) at the Black Horse Great Missenden. Briefing will be at the Black Horse Pub (OS Map 165) grid Ref 890 023. (Sat Nav HP16 9AX) If this site is unsuitable due to wind direction an alternative launch site will be arranged. A marked up 165 map will be available to check for updates. Please can you bring a copy of your insurance. This is at the request of the landlord. We will reconvene, following the flight, for a celebratory drink at the Black Horse Pub and probably anyway if it is not flyable. All are welcome to join in. A dedicated phone line to announce suitability for a flight to go ahead will be in use and the first update will be left after 2pm on Monday 30th December, to give an early indication/outlook. The number is 07581 899292. This phone will not be manned so there is no point leaving any messages on it. If you need to speak to a live person please feel free to ring Len 07973 256412 or Helen Vaughan on 07966 149254 or landline 01908 608329

Please bear in mind that their capability to speak coherently may be somewhat reduced this year due to a family wedding during the Christmas period!!! Please bring your leftover mince pies or sweeties to share in the field.Fingers crossed for a decent flying slot! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Helen & Len.
