10th June 2020

Hello HRFC Members,
Here are just a few point that I thought may be of interest to members:

Face to face meetings: With the easing of many Covid 19 restrictions, I was hoping that we may have been able to reinstate our regular monthly meetings this month. So to be sure, last week I phoned the NSW Government hotline for conformation but bad news….Because we are classified as “Recreational”, no indoor gatherings yet. Outdoor gatherings of up to ten are permissible but not indoors. I explained that based on the four square meter rule, our facilities are big enough, meetings are only one hour in duration and that social distancing and hygiene requirements would not be an issue for us – there would be no wrestling, kissing or cuddling but to no avail. The advice was to just continue to monitor the updates for recreational organisations.

Membership Renewals: We are extremely pleased with the number of early renewals this year but thought it wise to remind those that have not yet renewed that ALL annual renewals are due by June 30th and that after that date, full member subscriptions increase by $5 to $100. Any member that has joined during the current (2019-2020) period and has paid the pro rata portion of the annual fee will need to renew. The only exception will be any new member that joined in the last couple of weeks and paid the full year subscription through to 2021. Don’t forget too that it was agreed at the last committee meeting that any member that may be suffering any financial difficulties can pay in installments this year – $50 by June 30th and the remaining $50 by the end of December. Alternatively, speak to me or any one of our committee members and we may be able to look at other alternatives on a case by case basis. If you need Bank Details or PayPal facilities, they are available on the Club’s website at https://hunterflyers.com.au/ . If paying by EFT, don’t forget to provide some form of reference to identify yourself. As much as we would like to have anonymous donors, it does create confusion when trying to identify who is current and who is not.

Paul Bennett Airshow: Paul Bennett’s live streamed airshow is scheduled for this Saturday 13th June (10am to 2pm) and viewing passes are available for purchase at $10 from Paul’s website. https://paulbennetairshows.com.au/

The missing head set: Recently we advised that a Bose Headset had gone missing at the club. However, I am pleased to report that it has now been recovered and all is good. Thanks to all those that assisted in trying locate the missing set.

Well that is enough for now, and don’t forget to make good use of the website and subscribe to receive notification of any new posts and news updates.

Thanks & Regards
