Its all over for another year and it went without a hitch. As usual members brought along new kits for discussion, models builds in progress and enjoyed a social chat in between formalities. Planning has already started for 2017 including a start of year outing at the RAAF Museum at Point Cook as well as various comps that will be on during the year.
I can say from experience that running a club can be a bit challenging at times and that the duties of the committee do take up some extra time and commitment, but the rewards are well worth it. One thing I can say is that if it wasn’t for all the early work performed by Martin Reid and Laurence Farrugia then Warbirds wouldn’t be the club it is today. Others have contributed along the way including myself and the new committee members Mike Dawkins, Rene De Koning and John Svendsen. Having said that all the good work that the above members have contributed to the club would not have been possible, had it not been for the overwhelming support and involvement of all members.
2016 was a great year and a fun one with my only criticism being that we only meet once a month. Its great to be around a nice bunch of guys sharing the hobby that we love so much, so I would like to thank everyone for making the club the success that it is.
Merry Xmas and have a great New Year and may you get lots of kits to build from Santa.
Finally here’s a few pics of what went on at today’s meeting!
