Some keen flyers were down at Highbrook last Sunday for a winter fly.
Some parts of the strip were flyable with the right aircraft.
“Brian vampire on display”
A group of Highbrook member and other notable New Zealand model flyers were at Brian Borlands funeral this afternoon paying their respects to a fellow HAM member and one of the founders of the Roskill club. It was a great moving service / tribute. Our thoughts are with this family. Keep flying high Brian, you will be missed.
A few of the Highbrook members were down at Matamata over the weekend for the
MANZ event, one of the biggest in the country. There was great weather on both the days
except for the low fog on Sunday morning till about ten.

A shaky long distance video of Grant Finlay flying the large Spitefire on Sunday afternoon, turn up the volume on your device.
Well the weather did not play its part in the HAM Mini Scale Comp-coaching Day 29032017. We did get a good turn out with Gwyn Avenell giving a talk on all thing to do with scale. The weather then packed in so things were called off.
A thinks must go out to Gwyn and also to Arjen for organizing the event, hopefully this event can be rescheduled for later in the year.
Well a few of the HAM members were down at the RC Scale SIG Sponsored North Island Scale Championships at the Waharoa airfield (the Matamata-Piako Model Aero Club) on Saturday.
The weather was just perfect with a gentle southwest breeze most of the time and sun
all day. During the BBQ lunch the Briggs did a great display with their giant scale mossey.
Your club captain Antony even managed to won the novice section somehow in his green & white Pilatus Porter PC-6 and will now have to move up to the intermediate with the big boys.
Well there were a number of flyers who must have looked at the weather forecast for the weekend and decided that Saturday was the best as there was a good turnout.
Good to see some new models on show and taking to the air. Noteworthy was Jock’s Zero
with its jungle colour scheme and great sounding Saito engine.
Well there was a good turnout to take advantage of the great weather.
There is now a pile of dirt on the field to fill up the rabbit holes, so please
use it to keep the holes topped up.
