Our fifth Autumn Scale Rally held over the Weekend 12th and 13th May was a success despite the adverse weather. We selected May for this event several years ago because of the beautiful Autumn weather we usually get here on the border at this time of year, not so this year, best described as cold and windy!! Another problem we hit was the date! Last year we decided to move the event to earlier in May as it was getting a bit colder towards the end of the month and the fog was starting. Early May, and we hit Mothers Day!! this, along with the adverse weather reports during the preceding week had a big impact
on the number of entrants.
This year we presented three awards.
Best Military Aircraft to Greg Lepp with his Bristol
Best Civilian Aircraft to Joe Mathews for the Kinner
The pilots choice award went to local member Barry Kilpatrick with his Stampe.
Local Member of State Parliament, Mr Greg Aplin MP, Member for Albury, presented the trophies.
