Are there likely to be any Lakenheath or Mildenhall squadrons present selling their memorabilia?

Typhoon96,

I'll be there selling Booster Club merchandise direct from the 67th Special Operations Squadron.

I am also trying to sort out a resupply of Booster Club stock that I am selling on behalf of the 56th Rescue Squadron.

See you Saturday!

In addition to JOLLYGREEN with the excellent 67th SOS we're hopeful to have at least 2 Lakenheath squadrons in attendance but as I'm sure you'll appreciate that is subject to change/cancellation.

Cheers,

Hi, has there been any discussions about postponing tomorrow's meet, owing to the (ever changing) weather forecast?
It doesn't look great, at the mo, heading from the East :(
regards
Tony

Based on the weather forecast, I have decided not to attend today’s Patch Meet. My apologies to all members who were hoping to buy 67th SOS or 56th RQS merchandise. I am absolutely gutted but it’s not worth risking a 440 mile round trip.

Looking forward to the next one!

Hi everyone

I to like JOLLY GREEN will not make it due to the weather and a 320 mile round trip.

Hope the guys that do make have a great day.

See you at the next Meet in May.

Have fun and stay safe in this bad weather.

Excellent Meet today folks,

Great to see so many faces old and new despite the weather - for those that unfortunately couldn't make it this time please pencil in Saturday, 19th May (11:00am) for the next one when hopefully the weather should be a little more cooperative!

Thanks as always to Ian for organising, all our sellers and of course our American friends from the 493rd Fighter Squadron, USAFE who had a truly excellent selection of patches and other merchandise for sale.

Look forward to seeing everyone again and our good friends JOLLY GREEN and Tiger1 in May, you guys were sorely missed today.

Cheers,

REMIT31
