An outlanding on The Rye

Booker's Marketing Team had a very busy day at the Wycombe Community Festival on The Rye in High Wycombe, where many local sports clubs were offering 'tasters' of their particular activity. We rigged a Junior and soon had a queue of small persons (and some not so small) keen to sit in the cockpit. Our summer evening Trial Lessons proved very popular with local people. The weather helped by being mainly warm and sunny, with the torrential rain keeping itself tidily to short showers. In fact the sky looked very soarable for most of the day.

The event gave us an excellent opportunity to explain what gliding is about and to build links with the local community. Many thanks to the team of members who gave up their time to help.
