The day to welcome and induct the new cadets, we will use a similar format to last year. One K21 will be allocated to the cadet team on the day.

Jul 30 – Aug 7     Dunstable Regionals

This is the main week of the year which you should try and set aside and plan to be at the club to help with the competition and have a lot of fun in the process. The cadet glider will probably be flying in this comp with some of the senior cadets.

An inter club, fun cadet gliding competition, which Dunstable hosted and won last time round. Only provisional at this stage, further details will appear here in due course.

This is being organised as a general club expedition by Robin and Dan. However, it has been timed to allow cadets to participate before returning to school or university. The Duo Discus and the cadet glider will be there.
