  •  Bruce Fitgerald was all smiles today when his engine bearer frame arrived from Jabiru. He can now get on with his Lightwing restoration project. As well as restoration, the project includes a conversion from two stroke to four stroke power. Don’t forget, if you have a restoration or build project underway, please drop me a note with some details and photos for inclusion in the Member’s Projects page on the Club’s website.
  • An important reminder: It has come to my attention that not everyone is following the Covid Safety Plan by visiting the Club or Hangars without registering for Covid Tracing. It is mandatory that anyone visiting the Club  facilities even if not intending to enter the clubhouse must follow the Safety Plan and either sign the Cavid book (in the Clubhouse) or log on to the Service NSW Covid tracing site using the QR code available either in the clubhouse, on the clubhouse outer wall near the entry door or on the entry gates to the hangar area. This requirement applies equally to visitors as well as Club Members.

That is it for now, I hope to see you all at the meeting on Sunday.

Thanks & Regards

Bob Finch
