Title: Vulcan enclosure

With XH558 now being grounded does that mean there will no longer be the likes of the Vulcan enclosure at Dunsfold?

I am delighted to report that the organisers of Wings & Wheels at Dunsfold have kindly provided the 'traditional' enclosure again this year.

That's great news Eddie.
Being that membership renewal is no longer possible how do we gain access?

I'm afraid I don't know the answer to that one but I'm sure somebody on here will pop up with a helpful response.

You will have your club membership card from last year.

If your membership was renewed between May and now you will have your new founding Guardians membership card.

If you gained access to the enclosure via your membership card in the past, I would think that and/or your very flash new badge should be sufficient.

This is just what I think should happen, my membership was renewed in June and I received the above mentioned card and badge.   ;D ;D

p.s. Hi Eddie, hope you are ok.  ;)

Sam, my membership for the old club expired July this year so I guess I need to look at this new Guardians membership. Any idea who I need to contact?

Hi James
If your membership ended in July you should have already had a letter from Sarah (membership team) to invite you to change your memebrship to Founding Guardian.
There has been a postage issue which has delayed some recent letters but if you contact the membership team Im sure they will sort it out. In the meantime use your Club membership card and it should be ok.

As Event Manager for Dunsfold Wings and Wheels 2016 please be aware that we do NOT have an enclosure this year.

The enclosure has always been a kind gift of DW&W due to the appearance of 558 at the event, unfortunately that can no longer be the case.
We hope once we have the Canberra flying we will be able to re-instate this "gift".

We are advising those who have contacted us direct and who wish to sit near the Vulcan Village to arrive early and create a suitable encampment of their own to the front of the village.

Kind regards
Bob

I dropped a ball here and have made polite enquiries to see if something can be salvaged at this late hour.  Fingers crossed...

It depends on whether or not there is enough fencing left over after the essential fencing has been erected.  I'll try to catch up with the organisers later today & will advise then (assuming I can get hold of them - they are extremely busy of course).

I'm delighted to report that the organisers did manage to sort out an enclosure.  Apparently, it isn't as large as previously but it is on the flight-line.

That's very good of you to sort that out Eddie, great news for those who seek the cameraderie it engenders. Hope the show goes well.

Unfortunately no enclosure as confirmed at the Vulcan village.

Sorry guys - crossed wires all the way and mostly my fault.  There actually was an enclosure but due to the late arrangements, nobody knew about it.  Again, that's because I was a tad busy at this end & dropped the ball.  I'll do my best to make sure that everything is just peachy next year.  Either way, I reckon it was a nice couple of days - particularly pleased to see the perfectly flown Vampire pair from Norway.  I also think the mini-Reds were a show-stealer; wonder if it would be viable to put those up in formation with the large-scale Vulcan next year..?

Yes there will, however I am not aware of what checks will be made to see if you eligible to enter.

The enclosure is free entry for Founding Guardians. The Founding Guardians email news letter requested that you where either an item of unique clothing or the FG Badge. There will probably be a list of Guardians as well as a method of last resort.

So if you don't receive the e-mail (mine still does arrive) you don't get to know.

I assume you mean wear an item of unique founding guardian branded clothing  rather than be a unique  item of clothing?

Can't imagine why. Factual content even allowing for incorrect spelling. But that's life.
