R.Justic reported that the F2A and F2C events were held over the October long weekend at the Twin Cities venue with 4 entries in F2A and 3 in F2C. Fees were $10 per person. Monies from this event were handed to the Hon. Treasurer and Richard has advised that he will send the results to Brian, who will contact Peter Norrie for the certificates and stickers for the medallions. Hon. Secretary referred to the account received from Twin Cities for the slashing of the grass. She advised the meeting that she had telephoned both the contractor and the President of Twin Cities in regard to this matter, and advised that payment should be made directly to the contractor as requested by the Club. The meeting was also told that a huge amount of work had been done by the Club members on a voluntary basis to ensure that the field and the surrounds were in good order for the NSW events. Hon. Secretary to send a letter of thanks to Twin Cities. The matter of terms of agreement in the original lease was raised and there was general discussion. It was suggested and agreed by all members present that payments to Twin Cities to assist with maintenance of the field be revisited, and the Secretary has been asked to confirm the situation from previous minutes, so that an arrangement can be formalised between Twin Cities and CLAS. Paul Turner advised that a number of refunds needed to be paid and a list would be forwarded to Brian so that cheques could be made out to those parties. Hon. Secretary will send out a covering letter with the refunds. Paul also paid tribute to the work done by Steve Rothwell in the organising of the racing programme. It was advised that the Canteen had made a profit of $307.40 and entries raised $1400 but this was before refunds had been made. World Championship Reports. A warm welcome was extended to Frank Battam, who was a member of this year’s W/Ch Team to Hungary. Frank spoke of the trip to Budapest via London with Murray and meeting up with Joe Parisi, the third member of the F2B Team. He reassured the members that there had been no difficulty with the transportation of the models or with Customs. He mentioned the comparisons with the Aussie dollar, and the buying power of the HUF in regard to meals. However, clothing and shoes were more expensive. The Opening Ceremony was made very memorable by the aerobatic performance of a YAK, which enthralled everyone at the ceremony. His experiences were most entertaining and his telling of them was enjoyed by all members present at the meeting. Contd. Page 4. GENERAL BUSINESS contd. World Championship Reports. Contd. He mentioned that the venue itself, with particular reference to the aerobatics fields, was disappointing, with field surfaces and grass lengths leaving a lot to be desired. This is something that the CIAM representatives must ensure does not happen again. Frank spoke in depth of the fliers themselves and the various models, and spoke warmly of the friendly atmosphere that these competitions engender. He referred to some concerns with the judging and raised some very valid points. In summing up, Frank reiterated what an amazing experience it had been and advocated that being part of a World Championship is something to which our top fliers should aspire. President, Bruce Hoffmann thanked Frank for a most enjoyable report and presented him with a cheque with the thanks of CLAS for representing the Association at these Championships. Murray was unable to attend because of an unexpected work commitment, but sent along his apologies. Other members of the team from NSW had been invited to attend the meeting and it is hoped that they will be able to come along at a future time and share their World Championship experiences. Team trials for 2012. Hon. Secretary reported that the proposal from the C/L Sub Committee to hold multi trials for F2A, F2C and F2D had been approved by the MAAA and that the qualification events would be the State Championships in 2011. The Proposal to hold a single team trial for F2B has been approved in principle and it is now necessary to work out all the details, as these must be given to the MAAA by early next year. There was general discussion on how this might be put together and it was proposed that NSW establish a working committee for this purpose. However, the Secretary, as Chairman of the C/L Sub Committee, will seek expressions of interest from all other states before any proposal is accepted. Once an organising group is accepted, it is expected that a firm venue and date will be organised as quickly as possible, and all details in regard to the running of such an event will be organised so that they may be submitted to the MAAA. Change of Venue for Club Competition. The SAT F2B competition will be held on Sunday, 28th November at the SAT field, Milperra Road, Milperra.
