    • Welshpool (EGCW)

    Region 7 - The 15th Annual Great Welshpool Fish and Chip Fly-in - 5th/6th September 2020

    Yes folks, despite the best efforts of our microbial overlords, we’re still planning for the go-ahead of the 15th of our 'small but perfectly formed’ annual gatherings at picturesque Welshpool (EGCW). the gateway to the ancient principality of Wales. The programme will be as previous events - arrivals during Saturday (or earlier if you like!) in time for placing the order for F&C around 5pm, then an evening of wine, beer, revelry, comradeship and leg-pulling in the airport building before dispersal to wreak havoc in the local B&Bs, with departure on the Sunday morning. There may be some adjustments to our normal modus operandi depending on the Coranavirus situation, but we’re going to do our level best to have fun come what may! Register your interest by mailing Graham Baker on and further details on accommodation etc. will be communicated nearer the time. Hwyl fawr am y tro!

    • Fredericksburg, Texas, T82,

    Due to the uncertainty regarding the Covid-19 Pandemic the 2020 AYA Convention was been postponed to May, 2021.

    Information will be updated when it is made available.

    AYA 2020, Fredericksburg, Texas, T82, Scott,

    Preview of GOPA 2021 is here. It looks a lot like AYA 2020.

    Send an email to and we will try and match you up.

    Well, the word is out.....TEXAS will be the site for our next convention!  Fredericksburg, TX, to be specific, in the heart of the beautiful Texas Hill Country.  This neat little German themed town is where our 2006 convention was held and for those of you who attended back then, you'll remember what a great time we had (aside from the blazing HEAT!)  As it will have been 15 years since we last met in Fredericksburg, we decided it was a good time to revisit.  The town has grown in the last 15 years but you'll find it to be as charming and interesting as ever.  In order to avoid the intense summertime heat, as well as to take advantage of off season pricing, we've scheduled the event to take place May 10-13, 2021.

    The primary convention hotel will be The Hangar Hotel,  conveniently located right on the field (T82) and next door to the convention facility.  They will begin accepting reservations on October 14, 2019.  We have booked the entire facility, (50 rooms) and negotiated the rates down to $119.00 for Sunday through Thursday.  Rates outside those days will be higher.  You can call 830-997-9990 to make your reservation and be sure to mention the AYA BLOCK RATE. 

    The overflow hotel, Fredericksburg Inn & Suites  will also be the same one we used last time, but it has recently undergone a $4 million renovation and is extremely nice.  It also benefits from having a full complementary breakfast and is an easy, one block walk from main street where all the shopping, restaurants and museums are located.  They are accepting reservations now and you can contact them at 830-997-0202.  Again, be sure to mention the AYA BLOCK RATE.

    Your convention chairs, Bill and Cindy Daly, my wife Susan Dollar and myself are determined to put on a great convention for you so please mark your calendars now, polish your boots and spurs and start planning to attend.  More updates on the activities and attractions will be coming in the near future so stay tuned and check back to the AYA website often.  See you in TEXAS!!
