Plus 4 club nights Dates and themes to be confirmed (Please contact Alan Paulsen with ideas for these events)
· All dates are weather dependent. The following Sundays are postponement dates except for the MANZ rally, Floatplanes and the Memorial Fly-in weekends.
· We have tried to take advantage of the summer weather with the inclusion of an extra floatplane day. We had most scheduled floatplane days last year abandoned because of the weather.
· Theme days held @ Ferndene include a club supplied BBQ lunch. A landing fee of $2 per person will be collected on the day to offset BBQ costs.
· Floatplane days will require a $10 landing fee per person to offset lake hire and BBQ costs.
· Slope Soaring – These theme days have not been included this time around as they are too weather dependent. This does not preclude members organising a day casually when the weather is suitable. This is where WhatsApp is useful – have you become part of that group?
· BARON TROPHY – Each theme day is a Baron Trophy day. This will be awarded to the flier who, in the opinion of the organisers, has participated most enthusiastically. The recipient will receive the trophy until the next theme day. They will also earn a point that is accumulated over the year. The flier with the most points earns the Baron Trophy at our annual club prize giving.
