we regret to announce the Black Sands Fly in at Raglan this weekend has been cancelled. Despite hopeful forecasts a few days ago, the latest forecasts show heavy rains for Friday, Saturday and most of Sunday. As we do not wish to have people risking flying in poor conditions, and the effort involved in setting up the event for a low turnout, we have reluctantly decided to cancel the fly in. Due to facilities bookings we are unable to postpone to another date.
This is the first time in 13 years of the event that we have had to make this call.
Please let as many people as you can know of this cancellation - we may have trouble reaching the SAA mailing list as the admin is currently away. We will also publish this via social media.
Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause, please stay tuned for details of Black Sands 2018!
