Website Announcement

Col has setup the website so that I, Brian, and a few other committee members, can add posts to the site. This means that updates will be added more frequently, not just when Col can be tempted out of his cave.

So all you members can look forward to me saying nice things about you on the website.

Ask me if you’d like some information added to the page.

BNE Airspace restrictions 11th-18th Nov 2014

As you’re probably aware, the G20 bunch will be having a summit in Brisbane in November. Kevin has sent me details regarding airspace which you will need to familiarise yourselves with if you plan to do any flying around that time.

Please see G20 Airspace Restrictions for full details.

Also, check the Newsletters link on the right for the latest newsletter from Kevin.

Alert Members will notice ….

… that the newsletters provided by Kevin & Natalie are all there and now listed in reverse chronological sequence. That way you don’t need to use your fingers & toes to work out which is the current newsletter; it’s the one at the top.

Also, you will note there’s a new link underneath the heading (wait for it!)… LINKS, which K&N mentioned in this month’s newsletter. There, I’ve said it. I really do read the newsletters!

Bet you can’t guess which is the new link!?


Kevin and Natalie McDonald have kindly offered to donate their time and expertise to producing a newsletter for the interest and amusement of club members.

Thanks Kevin & Natalie!

Check the link in the right hand column under Club News for current and future newsletters.

Dare I say it, the success of their newsletter depends largely on the members keeping K & N well-supplied with up-to-date stories, rumours, gossip & lies about who’s doing what, so keep sending them your stories, guys! And remember, never let the truth stand in the way of a good story.

While I’m on the topic, just because Col’s on the other side of the world doesn’t mean that any new photos can’t find their way onto the website, so don’t let Col’s absence fool you into thinking the site has died. Drop me an email if you have any new stuff of any sort to go on the site, and magic will happen. – Col
