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.
The Twin Cities Model aero Club Albury wish to inform you that we have reluctantly decided to cancel this years Seaplane Fly-In on Lake Hume.
This is the second year in a row that we have had to make this decision as the Lake has not reached a suitable level to run the event.
This year that Lake only reached 40% at its highest level and the level is now dropping. We need the Lake at about 60 – 70% to safely fly seaplanes. The attached photos taken last week show the current situation at Table Top Reserve.
We will keep you informed about future events and hope that the drought breaks before next year.
If you are aware of other’s who may have been intending to attend this event, but they are not listed in this email , can you please forward this to them.
