Aerobatics Over Norsewood- April 26/27/28 2019
The combined event at Awatoto was a cracker in 2018. Lots of flying over 2 flightlines, on a fantastic site. I think we had 20 pilots ? Loads of new guys came and had a go which was brilliant.
The local club fed us up on their burgers all weekend, and we had a great dinner at the outdoor BBQ place on Saturday night.
Unfortunately due to some politics, the club can't get approval from CAA for us to fly over 400 feet at Awatoto this time, because the Napier tower is not manned 24x7 atm. Yep, what a bummer !!!
Plan B was to try and run a more centrally located event (Tokoroa), but the only date we could on there was over Easter. I got very little feedback on this, and its going to take a fair bit of paper work to get us on that site.
So back to Plan A …. the closest site to run this event on the originally planned weekend is the Galloway Farm in Norsewood, and that is what we are going to do.
We've had some great events down there in the past, and they have a superb site.
Plenty of accom at the local pub, and no doubt we will be in there for a feed at least once.
April 25th is Anzac Day. That's a Thursday. Its a Public Holiday. Its also School Holidays. That means if you take Friday off, you get a 4 day weekend. What a great opportunity for a big event over 3 days. The plan is to start contest flying on the Friday, allowing for a midday finish on Sunday, leaving lots of time to drive home.
IMAC, Pattern, Classic - This is a combined event.
