2019 President Report

President’s Report    2018/19

Due to circumstances at the time,we started the year with sadness, uncertainty and doubt, however after the same committee was selected and Jeff taking up the role of treasurer, we managed to move on with your support.                             

Winter saw the usual flooding of the field as we are witnessing now, but we managed as best we could like.                                                                     

The Xmas break up was a huge success with a great barby a lolly drop for young and old and great flying.                                                                               

April saw some members make the trip up to Mt. Beauty and have a great weekend as the guys there are always welcoming. I suggest If you can go on one   of these weekends go, you won’t be disappointed.                                                                         

May we had our scale/funfly day, a great day with over 40 in attendance and a great display of planes and gliders.                                                                                                       

January saw Chris Berry resign from president due to ill health and me taking over which I must admit I wasn’t ready for, but at least we got here.                                 

So, all in all it wasn’t a bad year and there is always room for improvement as we strive to make our club better.                                                                                                                        

Finally, I like to thank the committee for their support over the year, the instructors at the field who give up their flying time to help newcomers, members who help behind the scenes, and also those who maintain the field between working bees.                                                                                                                                                                                                    

 A special thanks goes out to Nean for his recent work with the council, Andrew for his photography, especially when we’re not looking and Robert Schembri who keeps our webpage running.                                                                                                                             

Thank you all. We look forward to your support in the coming year.                                             

And on that note, I leave you with this quote.
