Dear SAAA Volunteer, Member and Aircraft Exhibitor,
 
Thank you on behalf of the SAAA National Council.
 
Under extreme conditions of heat and dust the week of Avalon has been trying to say the least. Plus 37°C  Wednesday, Thursday, 40°C on Friday and Saturday, and with humidity on Sunday equivalent to 40°C. It was a survival exercise!
 
To the Melbourne basin of Chapters and through individual efforts of organisers, the SAAA has once again acquitted itself at Avalon.
 
Congrats to the Sling owner for best EAB aircraft.
 
A special thank you to all those members that made the effort to travel interstate.
 
To those that made the display of their aircraft at Avalon a reality – a very big thank you. Same to the owners of the Kestral and Europa displays within our exhibition area – Thank you.
 
Terry – thank you for bringing your helicopter to the Wings and Wheels with its special SAAA signage.
 
Barb and Denyse – kids corner was a great success!
 
Thank you one and all!
 
To our new members that joined during Avalon – WELCOME.
 
Glen & Debbie Smith our direct Avalon hosts and your team – thank you once again for the invitation! Please pass on our appreciation to the Avalon Organising Group.
 
Best Regards to All,
 
Tony White
SAAA President
