Given that this thread will turn into the 2011 thread I was just thinking that perhaps the lovely ladies of the Off the edge crew would mind looking into the winery tours and possible Sapphire fossicking expeditions in combination with the Royal hotel owners which would allow the ladies an opportunity to get away from the guys standing on top of a wind blown mountain That is of course if you want to.I'll be trying to get hold of the Manilla progress committee and see if we can get a craft market happening down on the flat next year .Anyway let the planning continue

That sounds better, I wasn't going to go and buy yet another plane (that I don't need) when I already have one set up for night flying.

1 class is good for night flying but its better to get as many planes up there as possible.
for those who dont have a night flyer, the easystar is the go, good plan form for lighting up and self rights if you stuff up with whats its doing. In aus they are cheap @ $98 compared to nz @ $185 so go for it and get night flying its awesome, plus we need more planes to take care of steel.
