What a windy month August turned out to be, even though we were rewarded with a beautiful weekend at the end of the month. It seemed like every aircraft at Tyabb managed to get into the air. I also noticed a great number of local residents coming out to enjoy the comings and goings of aircraft, which was wonderful to see.
I have been contacted by quite a few members about a person running around town undertaking a survey about the airport. I have had many reports about this person claiming all sorts of alarmist things with stories of jets coming to Tyabb and expansion plans to rival Moorabbin. Of course all of these claims are utter nonsense and designed to cause fear and uncertainty in the community. I just want to assure you this is an unofficial survey by an individual with his own agenda. As far as I am concerned this survey carries no weight in our Airport Master Plan and is counter productive to whatever his concern is about.
One of the key things that has made our club great has been the social interaction between members. These social events bind the Club together and enhances our enjoyment of aviation. As with many clubs, the social functions are always organised by a few for the many. I am keen to build up support within the Social Club to bring in some new blood, ideas and enthusiasm to support the our core team. We always need support for the various functions, FunFlight, the Christmas Toy Run, Christmas functions and of course the Sunday evening dinner. If you can spare a couple of hours a month to contribute we would love to hear from you. Call Gerry 0468 344 021
