For those reading the good news concerning the field lease renewal......the news is effective immediately...so go ahead and fly this weekend.

I hope to join you on Sunday.
On Saturday I will be taking two planes that are over the Shannon field weight limit of six pounds to the Avon field for testing, so they will be able to fly next weekend at the SRCF fun fly event.

Well done Gary and the HEFA Directors. You have approached DND and Canada Lands in a very business-like manner and as a result they are responding in a like manner.
We will eventually lose the field, but the goodwill by Canada lands will make sure we have it for as long as possible.

Excellent news guys! Great job Gary for staying on top of this! Now the field will have to be mowed for the weekend before the weeds get too big! Unfortunately I have my mower packed up for my move;however,if I can lend a hand to someone else to help complete this task I can be available tomorrow to assist if necessary.

The "customary" BBQ to celebrate the lease renewal for 2017 will be held tomorrow, Aug 7th, at the Shannon field.

So after all you sports fans get a look at Sid and the Stanley Cup in the Natal Day Parade....drop around and show your MAAC card and Chef Bob will present you with a Juicy Jumbo.
