    Default POPHAM Hoverin - Sunday Nov. 16, 2014

    POSTED ON BEHALF OF BOB BEECH

    Don’t winterise your craft just yet

    The Southern Branch offers –

    A November Hoverin at


    POPHAM AIRFIELD, HAMPSHIRE, SO21 3BD
    www.popham-airfield.co.uk
    SUNDAY 16th November 2014 – 10.00 TO DUSK


    Due to several new people showing a late season interest in hovercraft we have decided to not let their enthusiasm fester over the winter months and holding a hoverin at Popham. This is a popular site for both new and experienced drivers and if you would like to come along, with or without a hovercraft, we will be pleased to see you.

    Operating times 10.00 to dusk.
    Ideal site for experienced and new drivers
    Driver tuition and rides available
    Refreshments available in the airfield cafe/restaurant
    This event is open to both members and non-members
    If bringing a craft that is not registered with the HCGB then please contact us first

    DIRECTIONS - (Post code above)
    From the North and East – Exit the M3 at J8 onto the A303. After about two miles take the junction for Micheldever Station and then turn right (north) and go under the A303 and turn right as if you are to go back onto the A303. Go past the first junction on the left and then the airfield entrance is on your left. Don't go too fast though as if you miss the entrance you will, indeed, end up back on the A303.
    From the South – If on the M3 you need to go to J7 and then go back onto the southbound side of the M3. Then follow the directions as above.
    From the North and West – From the A34 take the A303 for about two and a half miles and take the junction signposted Micheldever Station. At the “T” junction turn right and then immediately left as if to go back onto the A303. Then follow the directions above.


    On entering the airfield, (the entry route is shown on the Google picture) there is a short one way section of road at the end of which the road turns sharply to the right. Bear left at this point and pass through a gravelled car park onto a track going down the hill. At the bottom, vehicles towing hovercraft can be parked on the gravel road alongside the aircraft park. To save space, please park solo vehicles in the car park, as indicated. YOU ARE ADVISED TO USE THIS ROUTE IN VIEW OF LOW HANGING BRANCHES OVER THE TARMAC ROAD THAT COULD PRESENT PROBLEMS FOR HIGH VEHICLES SUCH AS VANS AND MOTORHOMES.
