Leinster F3A Aerobatic Competition
« on: September 01, 2014, 23:05:01 PM »
Well Sunday just gone saw the Leinster F3A Competition held in the Royal County Aeromodellers Flying Ground in Meath.

It was great day for flying, weather was fantastic, (It fellt a bit odd leaving my gear behind while driving to the site??) with 15 flyers participating on the day, in Teir 1, Tier 2 and Masters Classes. For those less experienced it was a spectacular display of flying capbilities. And each of every flyer was very open and willing to show off thier planes and setups.  

The Royal County Aeromodellers were delighted to have had the opportunity to host the event on the day. The food (Thanks to Diane, OMG that woman can bake) and facilites provided were commented as being "top drawer" and we're hoping to host more events like this in the future.

We're moving to a new ground just down the road from the current location, and at 7 acres, the new site, promises to be an excellent location for all types of flying including F3A, Scale, Control Line, Aerotow and Heli's.

The club members are a dedicated bunch and have committed considerable time and resources into keeping the old site running while working diligently on the new site. Our new location has been levelled and drained and is currently awaiting planting

All are welcome to come along on Sunday's to Ballivor for a look and a chat and when the new site is fully up and running it would be great to see you there also. I'm a newbe to the club but have been welcomed with great enthusiam and help along the way. The team there are a great bunch of lads and so experienced and willing to help.

The place is as flat as a pancake so gliders need to be Aerotowed, bungee launched or used under their own steam....  :D  I'm trying to get Bill and the lads to build a mountain but they seem reluctant  :shock:

Our deepest fear is not that we are weak but that we are powerful beyond measure..... Marianne Williamson
