Electric fun fly in October

For the 12th year, Swan HIll Model Aero Club will be hosting the AEFA electric fun fly.

October 13-14 will see a large contingent of flyers from all over the place enjoying great (hopefully) flying conditions. Last year we were literally blown away - windiest weather I've ever experience since starting the hobby - but its gotta be better this year! Despite the wind, lots of flying took place and some fantastic models wereon show.

Some great sponsors are lined up, and the raffle is always popular.

SHMAC has ample free camping facilities, and a gas hot water shower, toilets and canteen on site, plus a flying field unrestricted by trees or obstacles. Half the SHMAC members camp at the site, and a big meal is served up Saturday night, and some flyers regularly hire a caravan from in town, while others choose to stay at one of the many close motels (we're only 4km from the CBD).

I'm looking forward to dusting off the electric warbirds (1400mm Corsair and Mustang, SE5a and my new Catalina) in addition to probably spending a lot of time behind the BBQ chasing locally-produced steaks.

Everyone is welcome, and we expect a healthy roll up of members from clubs nearby like Echuca Moama, Robinvale, Sunraysia and Cohuna.
