Total fire ban just declared. No flying on Sat 30th Nov folks.
Please note that we have been asked not to fly during the current spate of extensive bushfires in NSW if there is a total fire ban in operation.
This applies on Tuesday 19th November 2019 as a total fire ban has been declared.
You can check for total fire bans on the RFS site at https://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/fire-information/fdr-and-tobans and you may wish to look at the map view for the current day and for tomorrow.
We ask that all members please observe this, and I stress that it applies when a total fire ban has been declared during the current period. This does not constitute a change for the longer term.
We've just posted the Eelectric Flight Primer - a colelction of information from David Menzies that might help demistify some of the electric flight calculations and choices. A good read... click HERE to go to the article.
An ex-member of WRCS, Peter Gaunt, passed away early in November 2019. The Sydney Morning Herald carried an excellent article on Peter's life, at this link: https://www.smh.com.au/national/man-of-style-at-the-helm-of-the-sydney-morning-herald-20191024-p533s7.html
Come along for our annual sport, scale and fun-fly event on Sunday 6th October. Flying from 9am onwards, with most to see around 10am to 2pm. Scanner and Phoenix racing at midday subject to enough entrants, and trash and treasure (bring your own table).
There will be a sausage sizzle, and guests and visitors are very welcome. The gate will be left open to allow easy access to the field.
No restrictions on who can fly or what they fly, as long as they are an MAAA member.
See you there.
