Warwick Winter Cup enters the business end of the competition


Ace Dan continues to make great advances on the scoreboard and entrenching his raising star status.  Is there no stopping him ? Sid instructing picked up  5 points along with Brad earning a valuable 5 points as tuggie . 

Plenty of work continued inside the club house with Pistol Pete, Coach Blue Dog, Bill & Val and President Dan leading the charge. 


Again lots of activity on the field and in the club house today.  With a moderate Sou' Easter and overcast sky in the morning it didn't look too flash for flying today.  Pilots continued to build beds, paint walls and remove rubbish around the place however by lunch time things had improved enough to encourage pilots to head out to runway 09.    Sid again instructing with Bill and Phil towing while Cody, Erana and Noel continued their training and earning 5 points each.   The single seaters: Les in the mighty Hornet GKJ, Young Gun Stew in his trusty Cirrus steed GOW and White Ant Scott dragging out the BG (AC).   It was a challenging WWC day but Young Gun Stew won the day (8 points) with his OLC trace and a close 2nd goes to White Ant Scott (7 points) and Les - yet to have a nick name  - third on 6 points.  Bill and Phil both picked up 6 points flying the tug.

Again many thanks to all who pitched in when and where they could - the club house is looking great for trhe Maintenance Course starting next week ....
