Most members will know our long time club member Eddie McCallum. Eddie took on the challenge of a life time earlier this year when he flew his microlight from his farm strip at Longframlington to Wisconsin in the United States and back again. He was the first microlight pilot to achieve this and it is certainly an amazing feat!
Eddie has some incredible stories including encounters with bad weather, system failures and the people he met on his way.
I am excited to say that he will be hosting a talk and showing slides to share his story on Monday 29th December at 6.30pm. It will be held at the clubhouse and there will be a £5 entrance fee which will go to UNICEF. There will also be free beer for those that want it.
I anticipate that this will be very popular, and I hope you can all make it.
Update – Thanks to just under 50 people who atttended, Eddie raised an additional £230 for UNICEF.
