May 2020

Boundary fence replaced. Runway longer.
Old fence removed and some of it recycled into the new fence.
This means runway can be now 350metres long. Take a look at the fence, it is a work of art. There are movies and pictures on the Facebook page.

 Since lockdown restrictions eased, some activities allowed again, WIN NEWS made a series of items showing renewed activities and we were asked to show up for the story.
Bruce B had a few on show.

Bonnie Barkmeyer the reporter, charming Bruce.

Thank you WIN NEWS, the story is on our Facebook page.

Cheers Geoff :)

The weather forecast was reasonable for a change. The sky was quite grey and stormy looking though.

There were about six visiting pilots.

Much aviation was committed. Many models were there to be admired.
Cheated.....coloured the sky:)

Darcy had over 20 flights!

A Lockheed S3 Viking I believe, most unusual.
Dead-stick after spark plug ejected.

Sunday afternoon presentations.
Adrian - Pilots Choice over 80ins.
Darcy - Pilots choice under 80ins.
Mrs James presented 'Barry James Flying for Realism'.
Went to Garry Reusch, not present at ceremony.
'Excellent work' award, toilet paper, worth its weight in gold.

Awesome kitchen team, ladies division.

A good weekend, everyone had a good time I believe. Same next year.

Cheers Geoff:)
