Still Updating Pages.

Unfortunately I missed the Omagh Fly-in and the St Angelo splash in I wasn't aware these events were on. The Dr Kinsella cup took place at Newbuildings yesterday Saturday 21 June I was unable to attend due to family commitments but by all accounts there was a good turn out and there are some photos on the NIAA facebook page I believe. The NIMSA open day took place on Sunday the 22 June and some photos are included below.
If I am informed of any events I will add them to the Calendar, so drop me an email if your planning something.

Off she goes on the bungee

Climbing well

The after suffering an "event" when coming off the bungee the Albatross ended up treebound

Sam went to help retrive the model as in his own words he's been in every tree around these parts, and true to his word they got it down and with no damage. Maybe there aren't many trees in France or on the Great Orme, just joking JP.

Richard, Robert and Mario deep in technical conversation.

Congratulations to Andrew Wallace and Richard Boyd who both passed there "A" Silent Flight (Thermal) in tricky conditions. Well done both of you.
