Combined 4 oz. & 8 oz. Wakefield anniversary comp added to 30th September meeting
This year marks the 70th anniversary of & the last time that the UK won this historic trophy - a fact that Peter Tomlinson reminded me about during a recent phone conversation & remarked upon in the latest NC.
The conversation triggered a memory recall that a splendid Jaguar trophy resides in my loft. This thought, coupled with the very recent cancellation of the Croydon Wakefield Day on Salisbury Plain due to bad weather (second time this year), then prompted an idea that we could add an event to the Croydon Coupe Day/SAM 1066 meeting planned for 30th Sept on Area 8 of Salisbury Plain, for a combined 4 oz. & 8 oz. Wakefield comp with the Jaguar Trophy being presented to the best placed Jaguar. Ray Elliott of the Croydon Club has kindly agreed.
So dig in your model boxes & bring out those Jaguars that used to fly at Middle Wallop in days gone by, ready for a celebratory effort on 30th Sept. If you haven't got a model, the plan is available from our library, there's just about enough time to build a new one!
