HOBBY EXPO 2004
Once again a big thank you to all modelers and dealers that participated in making the expo such a great success.
The feedback received from every dealer was that they enjoyed it tremendously. It was not all about sales but mainly about exposure to the modelers, public and possible future modelers. Watch the press for a date for 2005. We have learned a lot from the first and it can only get better next time around.
SUITABLE RC FLYING FIELD
The time has come that we Jet pilots in the Gauteng area get a field suitable for Jets to fly on a regular basis. At present we have to travel great distances to far away areas or have to get permission to fly at certain venues with a lot of red tape involved.There is also the occasional flight at O.D.I but it is tied to a great security risk.
A proposal was put to the R.M.A.C committee to develop their runways and make them suitable for flying jets. As the club is fairly central to the Vaal Triangle as well as P.T.A and all the necessary infrastructure already exists, we feel this will be the most suitable venue.
A request is being made to all Jet pilots interested in fund raising for this project to contact Boet 082 449 4623.
The idea is to extend the main runway to 200m and a width of 10m as well as re surfacing the existing runway no 1. The run off towards the existing quarry will be filled and smoothened off.
I will keep everyone informed on the progress of negotiations with R.M.A.C
The year is drawing to a close and we have come to the end of our organized flying programme. The Jet weekend that was arranged for 20th - 21st November has been cancelled. The dates for Tedderfield for 2005 will be published in due course.
The Jet modelers in the Cape have put together a qualifying round for this coming weekend at Bredasdorp. For any further information regarding the event you can contact Ross on 082 881 3183.Well done to the guys in the Cape for taking the initiative to get the ball rolling in another Province.
