    Many thanks to Tom Van Blaricum and Allen Peterson who are retro fitting VH-NDG with a retractable undercarriage, the same as VMF and VWR, ensuring our fleet of DG are exactly the same.  They plan to have the glider ready to go back on line on Saturday the 28th of May.  Depending on the delivery of a magnet for the gear warning alarm.  Please thank  Allen and Tom when you see them, as preparations for the work have been underway for a long time.

    A solar light has been installed above the DG parking bay in the south hangar, so it is easier to gliders away late in the day.  If the light is useful we intend to install one above each of the club gliders.  If you use it please let Steve know how well it worked.

    The club has had an association with the Australian sports foundation for many years, it was first used to help purchase the Duo Discus, and more recently the upgrade of flarms across the club aircraft. We have a number of projects around the corner

    Please make a donation the clubs project fund with Australian Sports Foundation (ASF)

    The Bacchus Marsh Strawberry and Cherry festival is on this weekend, arrive early to miss the traffic.

    Based on last years experience it would be wise to avoid Bacchus Marsh and the Western Freeway from Melbourne.

    Alternative routes to the airfield from Melbourne could be from Werribee via the Werribee - Bacchus Marsh rd, or leaving the Western freeway just after Caroline springs, taking the Hopkins rd exit to Greigs rd to Exford rd past Eynesberry and on to Parwan.

    If you have any questions please email info@vmfg.org.au or call 8683 7240.
