No Stadium - Club chairman's message

By now, you will all have heard the fabulous news, that WDC have scrapped the stadium scheme. It’s great news for us, as a gliding club, but it is also a great re-affirmation that we live in a democracy and that good politicians listen to their electorate.
A big thank you to all of you who did so much to fight the huge threat that the proposal represented. So many of you helped in so many ways, the members of the club committee, the members of the ‘Saving Booker’ Committee and the members of GASP, so ably led by Gary Nuttall, and, of course, all of you, the members and staff, who value Booker Gliding Club, have stuck with us during this tough time and rallied round to energise and maintain the spirit of our wonderful club.

Thank you everyone. As Friedrich Nietzsche said “That which doesn’t kill us, only makes us stronger!”

We are planning a party to celebrate, club members and GASP supporters keep an eye on your email for details.
