We are winding down now after another very successful reunion.
The weather was near perfect and NAM provided superb facilities for the event. Any disappointment that Vulcan 558 could not appear this year was assuaged by a visit from a BBMF Spitfire, which was much appreciated.
We have had several appreciative emails from people who enjoyed renewing old friendships, and making new ones, almost all asking when the next one will be? We normally have a "year out" before making any decision and we have to consider the feasibility of running another event. Attendance was down by an appreciable margin on the last one, with many previous attendees perhaps being unable to be present, others who might wish to attend face problems related to advancing years or poor health - or both!
We will have to consider what sort of event might be possible in two years time as we are now facing issues stemming from numbers as well as finances. Advertising, including using our excellent website, accounts for most of the money collected, leaving little spare for the purchase of nametags etc The evening event is also run on a non profit basis. Numbers for that have also declined, with around 20 fewer this year than in 2012.
Anyway, we will be thinking about things once the dust has settled, and we will sound out opinion before making a decision.
Hoping that we can all meet again.
