Flying Aces - September 4th 2011    RESULTS

During the downpour at Sunday's Flying Aces part of one book of raffle tickets was mislaid in the melee of folk sheltering in the tent.

Peterborough Model Flying Club are very sorry this happened and will take steps to make amends at next year's Flying Aces. However, if you require a refund of your raffle payment please contact Brian Waterland on 01778 343722.

Compared to many parts of the country we were very fortunate with the weather. We hope you enjoyed the flying and look forward to seeing you at next year's Flying Aces to be held on Sept 2nd 2012.

17:30 Sunday, results subject to checking.....
