RC Club open days/ airshows

Would like to place this thread out there to do a bit of advertising for RC clubs to promote any events they have planned. I look through the MAAQ web site and it seems to miss a fair few of them like last weekends electric day at TMAC.
So anyone that is in a club lets say Australia wide that has something they would like to spread the word about then lets place it all in this thread. Regardless of discipline I think we need to spread the word more and encompass others around us.

Wondering if any clubs have any shows/ open days around the Brisbane region over the next two weeks? Always looking for somewhere to go and have a look at planes etc.

Hope to see some posts soon.

Cheers Shane

I'm guna pop out for a look myself.

I like the idea of this thread, I agree the info seems very light on via association mags.

Thanks for the heads up on the Coolum flyers if I were not recovering from a walk to the Stinson wreak the day before I might have gone for a drive.

Yes its hard to keep track of the various events going on. Apart from a few here and there not much gets mentioned. This is one easier reference point instead of looking into all the individual club or associations web sites.

I subscribe to Airborne magazine, and it's amazing how many events don't get advertised with them - it's free, so why not contact them and let the world know your having a show!

A good idea for a thread.
We have our Autumn scale day coming up 4th May in a couple of weeks, we have two scale days a year. See
http://www.wrcs.org.au
The club field is in Belrose Northern beaches of Sydney.
We have 4 categories. no entry charge.

Over and under 7kg Military.
Over and under 7kg. Civilian.

Any aircraft over 7kg must have a current certificate.
Also during the lunch break there will be practise racing for the
"one class racing" we will be running a bit later on in the year so if you have a Scanner or a Tiger 40 from Phoenix models, they are the two aircraft we will be using.
It must have no larger then a .46 Most will be using OS or Thunder Tiger but ASP or whatever no exotic racing engines like Nelson or Jett and a 11X6 prop.
You. are welcome to join in.
The 11X6 prop is to try and keep the noise down.
There will be a BBQ lunch time etc. etc.
The scale day start will be at 9am for a practise.
Pilots briefing at 9.30 and a finish around 4pm.
No turbines or pulse jets due to the Bush surroundings but any other engine electric or internal combustion no problem but it must have a decent muffler.
Trophies for first 4 placings in all categories and pilots choice.
There are a new set of rules see.

Don't forget folks that there is a FPV meet up day in the Windsor area if Sydney on the 3rd of May. It will cater for all levels of FPV pilots from guys looking at getting into FPV right up to guys that have FPV'd out to the back of Bourke and back!!

There will be a BBQ with food and some soft drinks for a few bux too.

There will be a huge wealth of knowledge for noobies to pick the brains of the more experienced guys we may even try to get some fun little competitions going on the day!

Check out the dedicated thread in this link for more info and to say if you will be there or not.

Cheers,

TS.

Hi the WRCS scale day for this Sunday in Belrose Sydney has been postponed due to the predicted wind of 35 to 40 knots.
It has been rescheduled for Sunday the 25th May.
See my previous announcement .
Dave.

Glad that members are using this forum to spread the word.

Great idea to have this thread. It should have a sticky.
