HI Andrew

A few of us were flying last Saturday. I was ready to walk in but Pete had unlocked and open the gate.
The drive in was Ok but only just. Pete had marked off the bad mud areas.
Half the strip has been cut but no good yet for aircraft wheels so hand launch only for planes.
Boots and jeans are advised to be worn.

More rain this week.

Just had a look at the Parramatta council web site. Mccoy park is still closed so walk in only for us this weekend.

First time we have been able to drive into Mccoy field for a while and my PA Ultimate is back flying since the lockdowns and rain. with 7 batteries its always good to remind myself how good these planes fly.

Hello All,

With the improving weather, I thought I would send out a brief Club update.

The mostly dry weather has allowed the field to dry out and this along with the many complaints from dog walkers, has compelled the council to resume the mowing. Hooray!

The Council boys are making good progress with limited equipment and they have given the Club the expectation that it should be back to the way it was prior to Covid and the rains.
But as always a special call out to Peter for his tireless efforts over the winter and spring and rains to keep us flying at all.

It is great to be able to drive in again and I encourage everyone to dust off their planes and come down to enjoy the great flying conditions and catch up with fellow flyers.

We have had many new member inquiries recently which is great to see, so get the word out that the club is open.

Anyway, get your planes out and get down the field, see you soon.

Cheers,

Andrew
