Following on the success of the Bunnings Family event in conjunction with father’s Day in September, we have been invited to participate in their Christmas Family event to be held on 8th December.
I would like all clubs that wish to participate to provide me with a contact name, address, phone number and email ASAP. If you already have a relationship with Bunnings let us know which store.
We will be providing these details to Bunnings State Activities manager who will coordinate with your local Bunnings stores.
Once again we will be asking MAAA to provide 200 Gliders to each participating club as give-aways.
Please contact Bob Carpenter, President Aeromodellers NSW Inc. with your information.

The Bunnings Night was a success with a pleasing amount of people and interest. We had a few enquires with respect to the club, location and activities. We expect to see some of these people at the club to (at least) watch in the near future.
The gliders were a big hit with the kids and disappeared quickly.
We were given plenty of space to spread out and display a variety of air craft. We attempted to display a full range of aircraft from cheap pnf (bixlers) to compete scratch built scale aircraft and from cheap pnf to expensive (jets). In addition, we had a number of display items such as motors, etc.
A computer running with video footage taken from an aircraft showing various manoeuvres and our site as viewed from a model aircraft.
There was good support from fellow committee members with a total of 7 committee members providing items for display and fielding enquires, 2 members remained behind the tables whilst the remainder mingled and spoke with others outside the display area. We had the support of the local hobby shop who provided some kits and other items for display. Much appreciation to him. Duane (Duanes planes) has been a long term supporter of the COMSOA club and his contribution is valued greatly.
Many thanks goes to MAAA For supplying the gliders. These provided the catalyst for people to approach our display and engage with us.
Below are some images of the event.
