Highbrook Aero Modellers Field Working Bee Saturday 17 March 10am


Dear Fellow member,

We require as many volunteers to help us on Saturday 17 March
We will be installing a mast, which involves mixing concrete and using wheelbarrow to move dirt.
We also intend to install more warratahs  for an alternative flight box and attach safety netting and wire.

Please be at the field by 10am.
Bring – Gloves (fabric working type), old clothes , tough shoes or boots
A Shovel, if you have one.
We need water to mix the concrete – 10 or 20-litre containers filled with water ( you will get your container back).
We need at least 5 x 20 liters.
Wheel barrow
Something to drink

The field will be closed for flying until after the work is complete.
Please let us know by return email if you can make it so that we have an idea of numbers.
Remember, we are all volunteers and we can only make this club successful if we all pitch in and help. 

 Kind regards, HAM Committee

2018 Open Day / Fun Fly


Well the 2018 Open Day / Fun Fly has come and gone. It was a hot & muggy day with a  bit of a cross wind from the Northeast. There was a large number of flyers with some nice models, shows you want good weather can do. Later on in the morning there was also a large number of the general public, even the boys in blue were there for a while to keep us flyes in line, they were a bit early for the BBQ.
