Sardine Run Fly-in: Margate 13-16 June
On Behalf Of Dolph Kruger
Sad to hear that you have sold your RV8 and that the new guy has already damaged it. Thanks for offering to help with organizing the RV Sardine Run.
I have spoken
to Graham at
One of the
first things that we have to do is to identify possible
accommodation for everybody and set up arrangements for people
to book their accommodation.
The next is to draw up a programme for the week-end and sent this out to all the RV guys as this usually gets them into starting to commit for the fly-in.
The following can serve as guideline and I would like to have everyoneís suggestions on this:
Friday 13 June:
check in at accommodation
Saturday 14 June:
and other competition at FAMG
Formation flying down the coast Port Shepstone to Port Edward
for those who have done the Formation Flying training?
evening: Braai at Margate Flying Club
Sunday 15 June:
morning: Recovery/free time/family time
Group flying and whale spotting down the coast to Port St Johns
Sunday Afternoon family time
There are other possibilities as well but we should also have RV group photograph taken with all RVís on the apron.
Let me know what you think.

We will definitely take Louis up on the spit braai at Delta Golf (I see he left out the strip show this time. We will also cater for the ladies with a muscle men strip) as this is always a feast and with Louisí hospitality we canít get better!
To assist you and make a block booking at Hillbillions we need to know who are going. I see that Chris have 4 confirmations. Common everyone this is a good area and time to be flying down the coast. Lets get some commitment and let us know who is going. Either let me or Chris Spencer-Scarr know.
sounds great and I am sure we can do lots more if anyone
feels good to fly down the
I can arrange a group rate for everyone to stay at Hillbillion Lodge . this venu is good as everyone can be in walking distance to their planes.
The Saterday night I can do aspit braai and run a cash bar for the boys in my hanger or we can have that at the lodge ,
I will stay intouch with you to finalise everything closer to the time
We are looking forward to seeing all the boys .
