****Additional communication**** the rally field has only very limited mobile signal (02 is ok) so we’ll also be putting information on an old fashioned noticeboard in the meet gazebo on the rallyfield.

The following system is in place for NWBAC meets.
A 'thank you' bottle for farmers, labelled with your details. A label design has been formulated and can be found on the Documents page in the Members' Area of the website - please print and bring some with you. (See Meet Info Sheet sent to those entered for further details).
NB: Landing details will still be required for Admin and H&S reasons to be communicated using WhatsApp and text messaging.
Balloon inspections may be possible over the weekend weather permitting. Please contact Pete Donkin directly for more information.
We plan to arrange non ballooning/social activities around flying depending on the forecast but expect these to include a Trailer Party, Live music on Saturday night, Table decoration competition, a walk or two, and of course various pub visits (walking distance!) – see also separate information for more ‘non ballooning’ ideas.
