Booker Gliding Club - in touch with Members

Member Forums and Club Communications

At Booker Gliding Club we use many different methods to communicate with club members. The aim is to ensure an inclusive and cooperative atmosphere. It can take a little while to get a full understanding of what is available, hopefully this page will help to point you in the right direction.


Club Newsletter

The official organ of Booker Gliding Club. Distribution to club members, and others, is electronic via the web site Members Page.

Each month we send out a bulk email to all registered club members advising when the newsletter is available and published on the web, this email includes a direct link to the newsletter. If you do not currently receive this monthly email, please ensure that you register on our mailing list to receive a copy. Our mailing list is managed securely in MailChimp and you can un-register at any time. Non-members are also welcome to register to receive notification about our newsletter, and may also like to register for our special offers on gliding courses.

We are always glad to have new articles for the newsletter. See the latest newsletter to find out how to contact the editor.
