In August our Aussie F5J team (Phil Stevenson, Don Farrar, Ladislav Safarik and Peter Pine) will be competing on the World stage in Slovakia. The team will be competing in the Slovak Triangle comprising the Dubnica F5J on the 14-15th August, the World Trnava Visegrad Cup 2017 on the 17-18th August and culminating in the 2nd F5J World Challenge on the 19-20th August.

This demanding schedule is made more challenging with up to 18 competitors in each heat, and should you make the fly-offs, a 15 minute working time. But the workload doesn’t end in Slovakia. At the F5J Trophy event at the NAAS field on the 4-5th November, the team will present seminars on their experience and lessons learnt. I know you join me in wishing our team a safe journey and every success in the competition.

Due to the success of the NEFR events held at the NAAS field in Canberra, and in response to the positive feedback received from participants, the AEFA Committee have decided to hold NEFR 2018 at the NAAS field over Easter 2018 and this has been locked in with the NAAS club. However, to give other clubs a chance at holding this premier event in 2019, AEFA will work with interested clubs and determine a shortlist to be put to an AEFA membership vote. More on this in future magazines.

The EGFA Magazine back issues are now available on the AEFA website. So if you are looking for a previous issue they are all conveniently available in one location. AEFA members will of course continue to receive the EGFA Magazine via email in advance of it being posted to the website.

The AEFA website photo gallery has also undergone changes to enable event or club specific folders to be created. We have started digging through the archives and established several folders to kick off this new format. If you have photos from club events or competitions you want to share, please forward them to our website coordinator David Lucas (contact details on last page). Have a look at this new format and let us have your feedback. Until next time.....Trevor Smith
