I've spoken to OJ about the Easter Portmoak trip, and while numbers arn't being sorted until after Christmas, there shouldn't be any problem (there was a big rush for numbers last year because of another group planning to go, but that isn't a problem this year.

Dates are 3rd to the 11th April.

This list at the moment:

Jim King
Ivor King
Liam Jones (if he still wants to when he comes back)
Mark Tolson (Sharon?)
My Mother (if there is space)

Richard can not make it now.

It would be nice for someone on the Four Counties side to take over organising this, as I would prefer not to have to organise both the student and 4C's contingents.

Colin and Hilly making their own arrangements.
Pete Davey travelling with Notts. Uni.

Loughborough people:

Me
Callum Harkness
Chris Phillips
Connor Hickey
Colin Warburton
Patrick Leedham

Aircraft:
K21
Astir
R10
LD (Peter taking care of)

If no one volunteers, then the 4C's people will have nowhere to stay - I'm not organising payment for two cottages. This is all you have to do - I've even got somewhere you could stay, you simply have to organise the 4C's people into paying and liaise with the landlord.

The people confirmed for the 4C's cottage are as follows:

Mark and Sharon (& Mutley)
Ivor
Jim
Allan Munroe

The only places that are available that may allow pet in Glenfarg, here: http://www.easterdeuglie.co.uk/default.html I am waiting to hear back from them as to whether they will allow Mutley for the week. The other property is here: http://www.cottages4you.co.uk/sites/cot ... ~N~N~N~N~N One space will be available in the first cottage still for anyone willing to share with Mr. Munroe. The second cottage relies on someone using the sofa-bed, but does allow pets.

There is also another place here in Glendevon: http://www.rosslyncottage.co.uk/about.html which allows pets. There will be a drive to the airfield of 15-20mins wherever we end-up.

The students will probably be staying in one of the lodges up at Bridge of Earn: http://www.riveredgelodges.com/lodges.asp Unfortunately they do not allow pets, so we cannot get two places next to each other.

The second link has changed for some reason.

Unfortunately there are no two properties close to each other. I have emailed OJ with our numbers (which I discussed with him before December, so there hopefully shouldn't be a problem, but we will have to see how many aircraft we can take).

We are booked in for the expedition, and able to take a maximum for four aircraft, the registrations of which I need ASAP.

Copy of message from OJ:

"We are on absolute limit with gliders so would appreciate if you can forward glider registrations and names and will book everybody in.

Please inform everybody that we are now absolutely overfull so we cannot take any more people and aircraft...

It is also a reminder to folks that our allocated time at Portoak is 4 - 9 April inclusive - I realise the 2nd is Bank Holiday - but there is expedition already at Portmoak the previous week... I will make a check to see if it is possible for early arrivals."
