Certificate of Appreciation - Kent, Surrey, & Sussex Air Ambulance - 2017

At the Club's AGM held at Glynde in April 2017, it was proposed and agreed that the Southern Club make a donation to help support the work of the Kent, Surrey. & Sussex Air Ambulance. An amount of £2,500 was also proposed and agreed by those present and, by proxy, by those whom had forwarded their voting authority to the Chairman or Secretary.

The Kent, Surrey, & Sussex Air Ambulance (which is a registered charity) have sent a Certificate of Appreciation to record their thanks. This is attached.

Website Weirdness

Due to a website hosting problem, the web site is showing odd effects - people are getting other members' screens. The solution is either:

  1. If you come here, and see someone else's logged in screen, just hit the 'home' button on the top menu, when your own screen should appear OK.
  2. Set your bookmark to shgc.org.uk/home.php

    Either course will prevent the problem reappearing.

Spring has sprung 2017

I'm sure there's an echo in here? here? here?

WILL ALL MEMBERS PLEASE NOTE THAT THE NEED TO CONFIRM CLUB MEMBERSHIP, AND THUS PILOT QUALIFICATION AND INSURANCE, RESIDES WITH EACH AND EVERY MEMBER NOT SOME IMAGINARY SITE POLICE - TO SIMPLIFY THIS, ALL MEMBERS ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR THEIR SHGC HELMET STICKER.

Do not spend £200 on an EN1077 class B helmet as that is far too much for a chamber pot and that is the only real use for such an artefact. Meager head fairings are the sole preserve of those with meager heads...

To those planning to attend the SHGC bash this weekend, it is being postponed for one week due to the rain and gusty winds forecast for Saturday evening. The Summer Bash will now be taking place on Saturday 10th September, from 5pm onwards. There will still be a hog roast, beer, plenty of space for camping and the all important roaring fire.

Andreus will cook us fabulous food. Mark will stoke the fire, tunes will be played, beer and wine drunk on a balmy Autumn evening.
