Humber Bridge Meet & Dinner
17/11/2017 - 19/11/2017
Linley Hill Aerodrome, Leven, near Beverley, East Yorkshire
PRBA's year-end meet, and being in November our flying hours are very sociable, so do come along for good company and a spot of flying; take your choice: balloon, microlight, light aircraft, paramotor and more. Some of the Aero Club members will flight-swap too. Free camping on the airfield for those who dare to brave camping/caravanning in November, or for those who want electric hook-up there are a few sites in the village and surrounding area. Also at this meet we hold our annual Humber Bridge dinner - always a good night. 2013 saw out the evening with an impromptu paper plane fight; so in 2014 we held the PRBA paper plane challenge; 2015 we decorated and hovered helium balloons, 2016 we went a-raiding in fancy dress, arrrhh we were pirates. Lots of fun and big laughs with pirate jokes and limericks and some fantastic costumes! So, 2017, what will we do? Check out the meet entry form and you will find out. We welcome everyone to join us for our Humber Bridge dinner whether coming to the meet or not, but we must insist on payment with your dinner order, please.

Plus, a real bag full of fun if we can book the restaurant out as a whole.....

Barry, the owner of the Old Schoolhouse restaurant, loved our impromptu paper aeroplane fight after the meal in 2013 (he is an ex-RAF man after all). So, not to disappoint the man, in 2014 we held the PRBA Paper Aeroplane Challenge. 2015 was the year of Hovering Helium Balloons, 2016 we had a pirates night with jokes, fancy dress, and fun.

So, in the year of 2017 - and as we are in a former Victorian schoolhouse, our theme this year is 'schools':

Fancy dress to whatever standard you like - just a school tie, a full 'St Trinians' style outfit, a mortar board, Miss Jean Brodie, or whatever you like.

We will have spelling tests, exams, and lines handed out to the naughty ones. Who will be Head Boy/Girl, and who will be the school dunce? Bring your cameras!

Social/Accommodation: Limited accommodation is available on the airfield for caravans and motorhomes, or even tents if you are extremely brave (it is November!); otherwise local to the area are a variety of B&Bs, guest houses and hotels in easy travelling distance. There are also camping pods available at Dacre Lakeside Park in the nearby village of Brandesburton. The Blue Rose caravan site is very close to Leven too - lovely site, but adults only.

Please make your own arrangements for the alternative accommodation, or please advise us if you wish to stay on the airfield.
