    Default 22nd March 2015 Southern Branch offers a Spring Hoverin at POPHAM

    The Southern Branch offers
    a Spring Hoverin at

    SUNDAY 22nd March 2015 from 10.00 to 16.00

    The November 2014 Hoverin at Popham was very well supported and we have been asked by several people, some of whom would like to start racing this year whether we can go there again before the beginning of the racing season. Well the answer is yes.

    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 16.00 (maybe a little later if you ask nicely)
    Ideal site for experienced and new drivers
    Driver tuition and rides available
    BBQ available for lunchtime. Bring what you would like to cook on it
    Other refreshments are available in the airfield cafeteria. The all day breakfasts there are very popular
    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

    Note that prior registration is encouraged to save time on the day. Please e-mail Bob Beech on Registration forms and other documents will then be sent to you a couple of weeks before the event. (Note also there will be no response from this e-mail address or telephone numbers until March)

    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.
