Weather should consistenty be fine but with strong to gusty Westerly windsn but swinging more to the South by Monday, We will have to be careful with winch positioning and layoff required.

New or prospective members:

If you would like to come on any if these days, go to the "Flyng Events - Registration" option to register a RSVP, then we know who is coming. This can make a difference as to whether we decide to fly or not.

Thursday will have Graeme and Rob as Instructors. Josh and Tim have indicated they will come so some flying can be done, subject to winds. More crew desirable.

After a very long bout of no flying due to rain and the unusable wet strip, we expect to be flying again this Sunday 30th October as the strip should have dried out sufficiently for use with caution.
