- January 2018
Enstone, Charlbury, Chipping Norton, United Kingdom
Well guys and the token gal, it’s that time of year again… Nothing else going on, Christmas is out of the way and we know you are looking to go camping in sub zero temperatures. Who wouldn’t?
This is the event for you, format is simple and the same for the last 13 years – flyin on Saturday, pitch your tent next to your aircraft, walk to the nearby pub, eat, drink and be entertained by the quiz, sleep in your tent, fly home Sunday.
The Quiz has fantastic prizes on offer. Everyone normally wins something; could be a Mars bar for having a pink trike, or the longest beard, biggest tent – you get the idea.
For 2018 we are very grateful to Enstone flying club (spitfire club end) for their hospitality. Its a great airfield, long tarmac runway £10, or north side grass £5, not much traffic, friendly club members,warm clubhouse and nice toilets. Normal landing fee applies. Fuel available by prior arrangement. Airfield plate will be available nearer the time.
Please let us know if you plan to come: Past years have seen between 42 and 15 aircraft and crews attend from the BMAA or LAA fleet.
Remember CAMPING ONLY, and the Icicle is a weekend event, we welcome anyone who brings a tent. See you there, only if you are hard enough of course!
Usual schedule applies; the event will be held on the first sub-zero good weather weekend of the year.
