CSIS - Flying High with Eddie the Eagle

Date
June 2018

CSIS attended the National Federation of Occupational Pensioners conference in Southport on the 22nd and 23rd of May. We shared a stand with Grant Whiskin of BRS who runs the NFOP Over50s Travel Scheme. Activity was busy at the table and we soon ran out of bags and pens as the 200 delegates came over to talk to us.

In the evening there was a Gala Dinner and the guest speaker Eddie (the Eagle) Edwards reminisced about his Olympic Jump at the Winter Games in 1988 in Calgary and his life story leading up to his biographical film in 2016. He told us he broke the British Ski Jump record that day. When asked who held the previous record he replied "I did".
