SAMJA update from Zane Mannell

After much deliberation and loss of blood, the SAMJA committee has been chosen:

Chairman: Boet "BVM" Denysschen
Vice Chairman: Johan "I'm on pension now" Ehlers
Events co-ordinator: Andy "Nosewheel" Keil
Webmaster/PRO: Olaff "Spiderman" Schoeman
Secretary: Paula "Weighless" Denysschen
Treasurer: Zane "I killed the Eurosport" Mannell

Everyone is urged to have their say here. It is a democratic forum and can say what you like about us - we will get you later!

Seriously though, it always seems to be a Vaalie Association, I am only here on loan to them just to show them how it is done! We want to ensure that everyone has their say(at least 20 cents worth - I am generous!), Cape Town, Durban, PE, Upington, Outshoorn, etc. If you don't, it is not our fault! Forget who likes who and what make of turbine you fly or who you bought it from, we want to hear from everyone who has something to say, good bad or ugly like me! I know that we can't please all the people all the time but I am sure that we can find common ground.

We are working on some stuff for people interested in attending the World Jet Masters in 2007 which will be held in Ireland. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) WJM is only held every second year. I have said that we need to meet with the guys that flew in this year WJM and learn from them. We do have the building and piloting skills necessary to do well in this competition. I have already spoken to the guys(Glen, Greg and Mark), OK I have'nt spoken to Glen directly but he will co-operate or else, and they are willing to share their experiences with us. Johan Ehlers has suggested a date after March 2006 as there is an International Judging clinic to be held overseas next year in March would could help us as well. Obviously the subject (aircraft)chosen is important to ensure that you stand a chance. There is no-way you can make up 100 static points in the flying rounds! So there will be a workshop held and I will keep you updated.

Direct all your abuse directly to me!

All for now
