Update – Temora Aero Club Events

Update -  Temora Aero Club Events

 

These past few weeks have been busy ones for the Temora Aero Club. The Antique Aircraft Association of Australia and Auster Rally at the beginning of October brought a fleet of planes to the airfield and enjoyed the club activities. The weather prevented some from flying in but from all reports, members took away good memories of Temora and the club’s hospitality

On the  28th-31st of October the NSW Aerobatic Championships will be held on the field. This group has been coming to the Temora Aero Club for the past few years delighting members of the community with their judged displays.

At the end of November and beginning of December the NSW State Gliding Championships will be held at Temora. This event affords many club members and community people to view gliding in all aspects: preparation for the day’s flying, launching by the Pawnee and local soaring as gliders seek thermals to begin tasks set for the day.

A reminder to aero club members and friends that each Wednesday morning at 10:00am, the club rooms are open for a cuppa and weather permitting, an excuse to explore the skies!  We also have a social get together on Friday evenings around 5:30-6:00pm for a drink at the club’s bar. All are welcome!

 

AV Safety Seminar 13th October

An excellent roll up for the AV Safety Seminar with 29 people coming from Temora, Cootamundra, Leeton and Canberra! Teraya and Albert from CASA, reviewed changes in procedure at non towered aerodromes and Pilot Maintenance. A shared meal at the conclusion allowed  time for participants to renew friendships with others  and to speak further with the presenters.

Coming Event – MARCH 2011 90th Royal Australian Air Force Air Rally

On the 28th March, 2011, the 90th Royal Australian Air Force Rally will arrive at Temora on day one of a rally that will take them to three original early training school sites.  Members of the Temora Aero Club Committee have been meeting with representatives from Point Cook, the Temora Council and Rod Luke who is the main organiser of this important event.  More that 50 aircraft will arrive during Monday and will lunch at the club house.  A Special dinner will take place at the museum that evening and then the group will depart through the day on Tuesday after having breakfast at the club.

The Temora Council has been involved in publicity and invitations to school groups to come to the airfield and be part of this special occasion and the aero club will provide meals.

More information about this rally will appear through the following months.

OPEN DAY

Sunday, September 26th, 2010 was a perfect day for the Club’s Open Day!

The rain had ceased, the sun was out and the wind nil.  At around 9:00am some residents of the Aviation Estate started to bring their planes down to the parking area outside the club house and pegged them down for the day. By 11:00am inbound planes started to arrive from other aero clubs. By the end of the day we had planes that had come from a number of clubs in the area: Tumut, Wagga, Moruya and Sydney.

A BBQ at midday set the scene for visitors and club members to gather around and catch up with fellow aviators and happenings at other clubs.

We had a good line up with a variety of planes on display from Sal and Justin’s Luscombe to Sam Richard’s RV.  There was a bit of competition between the two on who could get the best “shine”.  Sal’s recent gift to Justin of a super duper polisher helped them “win”! What a shine!!!

A very Successful Day!!

Nick Charles – Hanger 38 Party

Friday night Nick Charles was asked to come to Temora and perform at his first hangar party, im not 100% sure Nick knew what he was getting him self in for, Sam & Carol hosted the event in Hanger 38, it started out just a soup and bread night, then i got involved and we had 1 big wing dang cook-up, out comes the big cook tank and 9kg slab of beef.

Well by 7pm we had every thing ready for Nick’s first bracket of music, with 50 people booked in for the event, there was total silence why he was playing and the all mighty cheering at the end of each bit of music. I dont know who was more impressed, Nick getting the big Temora party welcome of the 50 people hearing some of the best guitar music ever to hit town.

After a fantastic dinner and another hour of music there definitely 50 very happy people where glad they come to hear Nick play, I also recon Nick was pretty happy with the laid back feeling we have down here to.

Here is a link to Nicks web site http://charlesguitar.com/ he has a heap of gigs listed and this is one concert if in your area you want to see. We definitely will see him back here in the future. you can also grab a cd from his web site
