Congratulations to Lukas and Jayden on achieving their Gold Wings. A fantastic achievement boys, well done. A special shout out to fellow club member: Jeff Linton, who also fills the role as State Flying Instructor with the MAAQ. His support ensures all the administrative side is all handled seamlessly when instructors send in the completed wing test forms. He also handles the printing of the certificates and sending out the wings to the clubs. As Instructors, we have the awesome job of presenting those certificates and wings - bringing plenty of smiles all round. :)

Cooloola Classic - IMAC Competition weekend...
On the 24-26 May, 15 LARCS members travelled to the Tin Can Bay Model Flying club to compete in the Cooloola Classic IMAC Competition. It was a fantastic event with a lot of fun had by all. To top it off, our members secured 6 of the trophies across the classes. If you've ever wanted to have a go, there is nothing stopping you! You don't need a big expensive composite model to get involved. A .46 powered Scanner can be quite competitive (it helped me grab 3rd place in basic) ;) A big thank you to the organisers, ASAA, competitors and the Tin Can Bay Model Flying club for putting on an awesome weekend!
