BGA Sporting Conference and AGM 2017

“An excellent day out…”

“A hugely fun evening…”

The ever popular BGA conference and AGM will be held on Saturday 25th February 2017 at the Nottingham Belfry Hotel.

The conference runs from mid morning through to about 5pm. The Annual Dinner and Awards takes place from 7.30 pm.

Programme highlights will include The CEO of HPH Sailplanes, with the Bite of the Shark.

And a presentation from the BGA Chairman Pete Harvey…..

‘Even a blind chicken eventually gets some seed. Everything I wish someone had told me 40 years ago’

To fly badly is easy. To really screw it up takes dedication unless you’re a natural. What do those pundits know that I don’t? This ‘behind the bike sheds’ discussion contains essential knowledge for all those wanting to bluff their way to soaring mega-stardom. It also contains other stuff…..with pictures!

The Full Programme for the day is available here
