Club Capers

 

Sadly, the Narromine Tiger will not be nominating for the Great Tiger Air Race on Anzac Day.
Since the crash of a Tiger Moth recently at Gold Coast there have been a number of directives from CASA to all Tiger owners. These requirements must be cleared prior to entering the race. They are quite involved and there is simply not enough time to get the job done.This is very disappointing for all concerned.
One wonders if the race will have to be cancelled as no doubt a lot of Tigers may have a similar problem.

Save the date = St Valentine's Day dinner at the aero club - $25 per head, free 350ml bottle of wine for the ladies. Reservations 0417 062 652 or Contact Us

 

The club was transformed into an amazing array of colour on Friday with a rainbow-themed birthday get-together.
Bright yellow, red, blue, green cutlery, plates, serviettes, tableclothes, lights and balloons along with a huge, hot buffet and a happy, bubbly and glamorous lot of guests all made for a top night.
Adding to the fantastic atmosphere was entertainment by wellknown  bush ballad vocalist Jock, and two highly talented and gifted teenage singers - Nathan and Kat, friends of the birthday girl.
All in all a fabulous night. Happy birthday Samantha, have a wonderful year. Photos here

It was a night of reminiscing last Friday when club stalwarts Bill and Jocie (pictured left with their bon voyage gifts) were farewelled. Bill has been associated with the aero club since 1958 when he learnt to fly under the supervision of CFI Ewen Jones. Since then he enjoyed a career of four years crop dusting with Col Pay, 25 years with Ansett Airlines and 11 years with Singapore Airlines - a total of 23,400 flying hours, finishing with airlines on B747-400 aircraft in February 2001.
Bill and Jocie moved to Dubbo after living in Singapore and renewed their association with the club. Bill has been a board member for several years and both have always been more than willing and able to assist as volunteers whenever called upon.
Being two of the most popular members of our club they will be greatly missed. All of us wish them good health and happiness in the next phase of their lives in Victoria and hope they will be back to see us whenever possible.

The NAC flying group's inaugural fly-in held at the clubhouse last night was a huge success. Around 40 pilots attended from various forms of local and visiting groups including general aviation, ultralights and gliding. A few of the local aircraft were on display and aviation tales abounded.
All enjoyed a beautifully presented array of nibblies and a cold buffet prepared by Jenny and Linda before an open forum on ways to promote and attract aviation events/fly-ins etc. Congratulations to the group (Murray, Gavin and Rob) on a well organised and informative evening. More such gatherings are planned over the next few months so watch this space!
