Invitation to a 1940's Dance at Saltby Airfield SkillingtonFrom: Mike Sheehan Sun 15 Aug 2010 15:21
This is just a message to let anyone interested in taking their classic or vintage vehicle to an interesting event, that the Buckminster Gliding Club is holding its annual 1940ís dance in the hangar at Saltby Airfield, Skillington, on Saturday the 21st August this year. The Leicester Big Band will be playing Glen Miller style music and there will be a mobile NAAFI style canteen dispensing alcohol, plus a hot food stand. Tickets are £12 each but if anyone comes in a classic or vintage vehicle then we will only charge £10 per head. Period uniforms or dress are invited but certainly not mandatory. The hangar will be decorated with bunting and stage-lit professionally.
If you want any further information, donít hesitate to phone the clubhouse on 01476 860385. We have very good camping and caravanning facilities for a small charge as well. (Weather permitting) there will be an aerobatics display by a vintage glider flown by one of the competitors in the recent World Glider Aerobatics Comps in Finland. The proceeds will be going to the local Air Ambulance and towards clubhouse renovation.
