Reunion - Plans for the next RAFLing Reunion are already well under way and will be held at the Leicester Marriott from the 27th-30th October 2016 inclusive (4 nights). Costs are being worked out but will be similar to those of the last two UK reunions (Bath & Leicester). There will be the usual varied programme of events and, of course, excellent food and service. So, as a tentative start, could you please let either me or George Bason (george.bason471@btinternet.com) if you might be interested (either by email or snailmail) asap. 
Many thanks.  Mike Hancock  (mike.hancock619@googlemail.com)

A number of RAFLing members visited to Chicksands onThursday 30th July 15 for the passing out of the language phase of three courses, French, Arabic and Farsi. They now go on to the practical side of things.
George Bason presented a 'Certificate of Excellence' to the student from each course who had made the greatest improvement during the course.
After the presentation of their course certificates, each student gave a small chat in their languages, relating to the course, conditions, structure and adventure training they had undergone during the course. It was very impressive!
A special vote of thanks must go to RAF WO Mark Mason for his organisational skills and also for being such a great host.

Cyprus Reunion 27 Oct - 4 Nov 2015

Most of you will have already read the Chairman’s report on the Cyprus Reunion in the latest RAFLing News. By all accounts this was a very successful and thoroughly enjoyable occasion and I’m sure you will all join me in congratulating all those involved in the organisation, particularly George - well done! Our roving photographer for this trip was Lee Bryant with a little help from Juliette Jenkin. As reported by George, Lee took over 1800 photos and I hope he will understand that I have had to some serious pruning, otherwise I would have here until next Christmas. Many thanks!
