Autumn Scale Rally

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.

 

Electric Easter

The Annual Electric National Rally is held each Easter at a different location, this year it was hosted by TCMAC here in Albury.

The rally experienced some of the best weather of the year and the participants enjoyed their visit to Albury. Some of the 30 or so visitors stayed in the Albury area for up to five days.   As a direct result of this event there has been a noted increase in electric gliding at our field.
