AYA Europe 2020 Fly-in, CANCELLED

  • 28 May 2020
  • 1 Jun 2020
  • Oban, Scotland, CANCELLED

Dear Grumman enthusiasts, 

in the current situation of uncertainty of travel and safety (or lack thereof) to your health the organizer team and myself came to the conclusion that with deep regret we will have to cancel this years European convention.

Who would’ve thought that not the scottish weather but a worldwide pandemic disease would hinder our flight paths?

But as they say in flying: Better safe than sorry. We do not want to risk that any of our dear friends is getting infected. 

The event will be still hosted in Scotland. Just one year later so you have more time doing your travel planning, check online what sights to see before or after and scramble for more pocket money to spend.

And as usual at or around Pentecost (end of may), depending on the hotels situation still to be verified. 

I am so very grateful and proud that Val and Sandy - despite all that work that now will roll over them a second time - did not hesitate a bit and volunteered to try again next year. Thank you so very much for this. It’s really highly appreciated.

If there is any justice in the world this will surely be honored with georgous weather next year. 

Attached you'll find the cancellation notice by the organizers Val and Sandy. You will all get a refund of your pre-payments.

More details in their letter. We’d love you to rejoin for 2021 and you - the current attendees - have a head start! 

So please (!) look after yourself and your family at this time because we do want to see you next year!

Join me in raising your glasses with me tonight: to Oban 2021! 

All the best


PS: Don’t forget to cancel your hotel and car rental bookings and for some: airline flights too
