Baz is on the mend

Club stalwart Barry Kilpatrick travelled to Melbourne last week for an operation on his heart (yes it seems he does have one).

Barry came through the op all ok and with 3 new valves and a bit of additional tweaking here and there he is on the mend and will soon be back terrorising anyone who gets in his way.

On behalf of TCMAC and all the members we wish Baz a speedy recovery.

2019 Classic Airplanes Rally

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is David_Balfour.jpg

A report by David Balfour

The second annual Classic Airplane Rally
 
Twin Cities Model Aero Club conducted their second Classic Airplane display last weekend November 23 / 24.
 
The event features aircraft from the ‘Classic’ period of aviation from 1910 to 1950, the first 40 years of aviation.
 
Aircraft are displayed in era groupings, this year 35 scale models were displayed.
 
The event is a flying and static display and the winning model is selected by Mr Jim Williams, proprietor of the Albury based aircraft business Classic Airplanes, hence the events name.
 
The winner of this years event was local members Ken Osborne with his Albury Monoplane. This aircraft was the first aircraft to be built and flown in Albury in 1913.
 
A full size replica of this aircraft hangs from the roof inside the Albury City Library.
 
The weather over the weekend was a bit on the hot side which detracted from the day, hope for better conditions next time.
 
These events do not just happen, many members contributed their time in preparing and in the running of the weekend, thanks to all who helped out.
 
To see pictures of the event head over to the Gallery section of the website.
 
 

CLAS NSW Championships

 

A Report by Darrell Smailes

The CLAS NSW Championship for speed and team race was conducted over the long weekend of October 4th to October 7th 2019.

Approximately 25 entrants from Vic, NSW, SA, Qld, WA & New Zealand competed over the weekend which was heralded a huge success.


The events counted towards points to qualify for the 2020 World Championships to be held in Poland.


Past World Champions and competitors were well represented over the weekend.


A great weekend was enjoyed by all, due mainly to our club facilities and the local area amenities.


Two speed records were broken subject to confirmation.


Thank you for the Club support and we are now gearing up for our TCMAC Control Line GrandPrix, January 2nd to 5th, run over 4 days (see Events calendar for details).


A mixture of events from speed, team race, combat and stunt will be conducted and early indications are very positive that the event will attract many competitors from throughout the Australia.

APA Pattern Event

A Report by Rob Hulett

Around 25 competitors entered the APA event held at TCMAC last weekend, with practice on Friday & 2 days of competition Saturday and Sunday.  Several classes ran over the weekend and 5 entrants came from TCMAC.

Congrats to Adeh Becker and Peter Webb for coming in at 1st & 2nd in the Sportsman class, with only a few points separating them.

In Advanced, Rob Hulett came in at #3, just sneaking in front of Warren Leach & Chris Henry went well in F3A but was outpointed on the day.

Compliments flowed from our visitors on the state of the facilities, thanks again due to the hard work members have put in with mowing and working bees.
