Does a wood chucker chuck wood
Welcome back one and all and the very best to a splendid 2013 to each an every one.We had some fun over the entire Xmas period with mother nature delivering
the ever present and healthy summer South Easters as well as some hectic heat
over the post Xmas period. The guys pretty much flew their sticks off
and Aerobatics practice has been going crazy the whole time as the
event approaches for the 26 and 27th of January. There are lots of new entrants this year
and it appears we will once again host a record field and the new entries
will really bolster the Sportsmans class. Still time to enter guys.
We also did a Red Hill clean up last week which saw a great turnout
of guys only too happy to attack an Alien or three hundred with the two chainsaws
at our disposal. Alien vegetation is really a bane on our slopes as it slowly kills
the soft fynbos and outgrows everything while creating a hard tree
where a yummy bush used to reside in the landing zone.
So sweat we did, and behave very manlike with chainsaw in hand…
very liberating after leaving home post washing the dishes…
and then we flew some and practiced aerobatics again and again.
So we wait with bated breath for the arrival of the Durbs lads and the
fun to start in the next fortnight.

A huge thanks and kudos to all who took part!
Was exhausting fun indeed!
