President’s Message

Hot cross buns (what’s with those fruitless buns) in the shops tells us that Easter is fast approaching which means the National Electric Flight Rally (NEFR) is also rapidly approaching. Once again, this eclectic mix of events will be held over four days, the 10th -13th April, at Cootamundra

This year, to try and get more flyers into foamy pylon racing, there will be 3 classes: Fast Class for the rev heads, Standard Pusher Class for Bixler & Skysurfer type planes and Glider Class for the Radian & Easyglider type models. Of course, Scramble, LEG, F5J, EOT, Radian and Scale round out the program. So its time to start thinking about sending in your entry form which can be found at http://aefanet.com/ nefr-2020 along with the program, site details and more information on the foamy pylon classes. See the flier on page 18. 

The AEFA AGM is also held at NEFR and a key part of the AGM is the election of office bearers for the next year. In accordance with the constitution, all positions are declared vacant at the AGM and new office bearers are selected from the nominations received. If more than one nomination is received for any position a secret ballot will be conducted at the AGM. I will not be nominating for a Committee Position at the AGM however the other current committee members have indicated they will be nominating for positions. With the Vice President position currently vacant, and myself not nominating, the committee will have two vacant positions if no other nominations are received. If you have thought about a role within AEFA then now is the time to step forward. If you want to find out about the responsibilities of the Committee positions, please call me on 0411887350. 

I will send out a reminder email closer to NEFR and include a nomination form. If you want to make an early start on completing a nomination form, I will forward one to you on request. 

Many of you will be aware that the MAAA Nats, for this year, have been replaced by the First West Wyalong National Championships to be held from the 7th - 15th July. I have been told that thermals are great at West Wyalong in July. NSW Free Flight Society is close to having the program and event organisation finalised and we will let you know as soon as the program is available, and registration open. Once again Electric Old Timer (Phil Stevenson CD This email address is being protected from spambots.

A great event to witness the roots of our hobby. 

Until next time…..Trevor Smith This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
