    After negotiating an agreement with Dynamic Flight at Trawalla the club has moved its flying field to Dynamic Flight Park.

    We began the field setup at Trawalla on Saturday 4th October 2014 and have made steady progress restoring our facilities.

    Operations at Yendon ceased on Saturday 25th October 2014 after the site was cleared of all our assets and the land restored to its original state.

    The club is in a predicament at the moment!!!
    Our flying field that we have leased since 2000 is part of the Lal Lal Estate which has recently been sold to overseas interests. Unfortunately the new owner has ordered us to vacate the site by November 30th 2014.

    We are actively searching for a new field in the Ballarat district to enable the club's flying activities to continue. If anyone knows of any available land that might be suitable please contact the club.

  • 31 October 2007 - We managed to run the ARF Scale Competition on Sunday 28 October 2007 under extremely challenging weather conditions. Strong winds were felt right across the state which no doubt contributed to the lower than expected number of entries. However we decided to press on with the competition, some competitors deciding at the last minute not to fly.
    The final results after flying 3 rounds were:
    1st Neil Addicot Grumman Panther
    2nd Roger Carrigg Shoestring
    3rd Noel Whitehead Extra
    It's pleasing to report that there were no mishaps.
    A full report will be in the November newsletter and a results page is soon to be created for the ARF Scale competitions.
