He welcomed the guests of honour: Mr & Mrs Paul McMillan who was a very successful flyer for many years to present the fantastic array of cups, and diplomas.
Mr McMillan spoke of how highly competitive the club members are: not only in the club and the Fen Federation, but also in the Midland National Flying club against some of the country’s top fanciers.
