    David, This is a great track, more so because the Tambar Springs strip is on my Mum and Grandfather’s property, “Moonaree”. My grandfather flew Wirraways in the war. He told me he got dispensation to land at the house paddock (not where the strip is) but just in the paddock near the homestead, on his way up North somewhere. The Wirraway almost clipped the fence on departure. He laughed, said he was being a bit cocky and almost stuffed it. Lambrook belongs to family friends, good friends of my grandfather’s. I went to Reno a few years back to watch a mate Lachie Onslow race there and Willi

    Hi, if this message is outside the rules, please feel free to delete but last night on the VFR Event, I recorded it for YouTube and thought that some of those that took part might be interested. I won't post the link because I don't want this to be a ad, but wanted to let them know. If they are interested, maybe they can contact me direct? Again, if this is out of order, I apologise.

  9. Good Morning Everyone, It is with deep regret that I announce to the VATPAC Community the departure of @Nicholas Naumovski from the Events Department. Nic has been involved in the Events Department since February 2019 and since his appointment has been a pivotal member in some of the more behind the scenes work of the Events Department. Over the past 6 months Nic has found limited availability and with his recent acceptance into his dream University course, he is now unable to dedicate any more time to VATPAC. Thank you for all your work Nicholas! It has been great watching you
