Peter Clarke has asked us to thank everyone who rang to wish him well throughout his recent illness. Peter has had some lymph nodes removed and has the all clear, with his next check-up in 3 months. Many of the well-wishing messages just have the first name of the caller, and so he'd be guessing who some were, but he's grateful to all.
For those that don't know Peter, his involvement with WRCS goes a long way back, and he was one of the folk involved in the original establishment of our current facility - last century!
Our "spring" scale event promises to be a big one this year, with quite a few visitors coming from outside of the club, as well as some display flying and some racing to fill the lunch break. If you are planning to enter aircraft in the event, you can download the entry form at this LINK (one per aircraft, please).
Important Message from the President of Aeromodellers NSW
Dear Clubs and members
It has taken some time to digest the presentation by Mr. Carl Bizon (Vice President of MAAA) that formed part of our monthly meeting on Friday the 14th August at our usual venue, Dooley’s Waterview Club in Silverwater.
The meeting was attended by 40 people representing clubs across NSW.
A few notes and reminders:
- The Manly Daily carried a double page spread on the club on 26th September in the Weekend section. The online version can be seen here: http://newslocal.newspaperdirect.com/epaper/viewer.aspx - Saturday 26th, pages 32 and 33
- Club night - Thursday 1st October, 7:30pm at Belrose Bowls Club, will inlcude a useufl presentation with material from the NSW Ambulance Service on saving lives
- Monday October 5th is a public holiday - labour day
- Sunday 25th October is Spring Scale Day, and is also Australian Model Flying Day. WRCS will be raising money for the Royal Flying Doctor Service and guests are very welcome - it should be a big day
Our Spring Scale Day, 2015, has been moved to Sunday 25th October to coincide with the MAAA national model flying day, which will be raising money for the Royal Flying Doctor Service. We're hoping to have approval in time to make this a larger event, so that we can also do our bit to help with fund raising./ More information to follow.
