MFW June 2013 - Page 25

Sunday was another cracker, wind was only a couple of knots and was straight down the runway again so we were straight back into it and the models were airborne. After a few flights Steve and I realised that we had been too busy and hadn’t taken many photos so we took a few minutes to wander around and admire the many models that had attended the event. Clayton had been filming the whole weekend and has lots of footage To check out the photos and videos from the event head over to the NHMC Yo uTube channel C or just search NHMC on YouTube. It really is an awesome sight to see and if you’d wondered about attending an event like this I can highly recommend it. Prize giving was held on Sunday afternoon with Morris and Lloyd taking out the “best newcomer” category. Well done guys. We were thanked by the organisers Russell Eastaway and Peter Agnew and were given a bottle of the local Wangaratta wine each to sample. The event was well organised and well run and I’d like to Thank Peter and Russell on behalf of the New Zealand team for all their effort and for making this trip possible for us. A big thanks also goes to Steve Nichols, without his help with the customs paperwork and all the other stuff that goes with transporting a model jet none of this would be possible. I am definitely keen to head back over next year. Above: Kiwi’s posing ..from left to right Morris Bushby, Rog Perrett, Steve Nichols, Clayton Mitchell, Steve Ford & Lloyd Bushby.
