NSWRA counting down to launch

Hi everyone,

A Christmas present for all!!!

We have been given sufficient approvals to re-start the NSWRA in January. All documentation will be finalised third week of January - just in time for a launch day at the end of the month. I'm guessing the 27th at this stage (to avoid co-inciding with Australia Day). At a minimum all black powder motors will be approved for flight with E to G to follow soon after (depends how the documentation proceeds with CASA in January).

A flyer will be issued to the hobby shops soon to notify any new people of this recommencement.

Things that still need to be done before that date:
-Allocate tasks to individuals. This includes, Launch Control Officers, Range Safety Officers, Treasurer, Secretary, Vice President, President (if your keen), etc.
-Finalise club's policies and procedures
-Determine membership fees - they will be higher than previous years due to higher insurance premiums
-do some cleaning up at the launch site - the grass is overgrown in some areas and needs to be cut back.

Further notifications will be sent out early next year to commence some of this work.

At this stage I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
