I have approached the RNLI to run a flare demonstration evening at Calshot activities centre on either friday 12 or saturday 13 november about 5.30-6pm,as the RNLI prefer to do the demonstration in near daylight.
They will demonstrate the correct use of handheld and parachute flares and there will be some opportunity to have a go,I believe it is permissable to bring your own flares providing they are not damaged or out of date.
The evening is free but it costs the RNLI £80.00 so a collection may be in order.
There is a bar at the centre and I plan to look into using the bar to award prizes in association with Richard,Louise and Sue for the recently held cruise on the 19th september (which was in no way a treasure hunt)
after the flare demonstration.
The RNLI have requested that there is a group of no more then 30 for the demonstation so this post is really a feeler to gauge interest.
