01 FESTIVAL OPENING TALK & RECEPTION Black Mountains Gliding Club with Mike Codd

Come and hear a talk from Mike Codd of the Black Mountains Gliding Club. This illustrated presentation will tell you about the history of the club, what gliding is all about and perhaps give you the chance to try and spot some local landmarks which have been captured from the air. The Club is ideally placed at the foot of the Black Mountains Escarpment to take advantage of the up-draughts caused by the mountains, giving glider pilots some of the longest flights in the country. If you want to know more, a guided walk will take place on Saturday, (see Walk 06).
