North Island Scale comp – Matamata 2017

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.

Saturday 25th March 2017

 

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.

Sunday 19th March 2017

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.

The HAM open day / fun fly happened over the weekend

There was a good turn out of both flyers and the general public for our HAM open days over the two days as can be seen by the photos below. The weather mostly paid its part. And everyone enjoyed themselves with only a couple of mishaps.
