Great weekend and AGM

There was another great weekend at Waikerie.

Saturday saw some good flying before the Clubs AGM. Several pilots were “away” for a few hours, under Cu with climbs to around 6000.

The highlight of the day however was the first “in-command” flight by Bradley McKay. After a few flights with Bill Mudge – it happened. Congratulations to Bradley on this milestone in his flying career – he had a smile when he landed that you couldn’t walk around. Well done Brad.

On Sunday, Matt Morgan went solo. Well done Matt! It was a good one.

It was good to see Graham Parker during Saturday afternoon: he flew in from Gawler in his AS G29.

Saturday’s flying finished early because of the Club’s AGM.

A separate report in Club forums will provide information and detail for members.

I thank those members who have contributed to the operations of the Club in the past 12 months – in particular to those who actively contributed to the Multi-class competition a big THANKYOU.

A new Committee was elected;

President John Hudson
V/President Peter Robinson
Secretary John Ridge
Treasurer Craig Vinall
Committee Greg Jackson
Peter Paine
Aiden Baker
Dion Baker

I thank Allen Hudson for his efforts and commitment to the Committee over the past several years and I welcome Dion to the Committee.

On behalf of the members, I extend special thanks to the Committee for their efforts and ongoing support over the past year.

I also thank the membership of the Club for re-electing me as President of the Club for another year and  for the show of support at the direction we are taking.

There are always tasks which would benefit from the effort of members – the benefits to the Club and to individual members is great and personally rewarding. I encourage every member to get actively involved – and if you need help to select a task, talk to me – I’ll gladly assist.

Again thanks for the opportunity presented – I’ll endeavour give my best.

John Hudson
