Maryborough Event Report

16th - 17th May 2015 

Report by Chris Watt

We had a wet and windy weekend after a good start on Saturday, Q500 in the morning followed after lunch by F3R
Some heats had to be run in between rain squalls but we were able to get it done with some great help from all flyers and our faithful Timers, Kevin, Linda, Cathy & Karen. Jo Taylor also hopped into the timing cage on her crutches to help out on saturday. Hope you get better Jo. Kevin & Karen came to Maryborough to help run the event even though Chris was not Flying, thats dedication.

Sunday dawned cooler and wetter and we had to dodge showers all day, however after a lot of patience from the timers and cut judges everything was completed. F3D in the morning followed after lunch by F3T.
A QMARA meeting was held and the newly elected CD is Bruce De'Chastel. The QMARA members on the Australian F3D team for the world champs in July, Kevin & Christopher Callow & Tyler & Warren Mees, were farewelled and given donations from QMARA towards their costs, we all wished them well.

The Maryborough Club prepared the fields for us as usual and they were in good condition. The food was fantastic as always and having a nice hot Bacon & Egg roll for breakfast was the best start to the day. The German Sausage at lunch was to die for as was the rest of the food. A real treat were the hot sausages handed out during a rain delay to keep us all warm. Thank to all of the Maryborough Club members who helped out in the canteen and looked after us.
