A big reminder that the Callide Dawson Flying Group (CDFG) 25th Anniversary Fly-In is being held at the Biloela / Thangool Airport over the coming Queen's Birthday Long Weekend - 7-9 June 2014.
The CDFG hopes to make this an event that caters for all ages with a particular focus on encouraging families to have a day out.
Along with the usual attractions for plane spotters and aviation enthusiasts - including joyflights and TIFs - the Group also plans to have general interests like market stalls, jumping castles, kiddie rides, bus tours, camel rides, flight simulator, vintage car displays and much more!
To fill the tummies the Group are working towards having pies, hamburgers, drinks, ice cream, popcorn, hot chips, sandwiches and more, plus a dining tent catering for breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Entertainment and a BBQ on the Sunday night.
The program - above - shows that aircraft arrivals are expected on Saturday. culminating with the Fly-in Dinner at the Red Steer Hotel. On Sunday, there is a memorial flight departing at 10am, and following scheduled RPT movements, the official opening at 1pm. Aircraft are expected to be heading home on Monday, following the early morning RPT arrivals.
There has been a small band of volunteer Group members working at bringing this event together, and any offers of help and assistance in the week preceding, in the way of setting up, and also the clean-up afterwards will be gladly accepted.
The next area of importance is during the event where volunteers are required to assist with plane parking and general light duties throughout the 3 days. They need as many volunteers as can be available because with the responses already received it is expected to be a biog event! The more volunteers, the shorter the stints of duty. YOU DO NOT NEED TO HAVE HAD ANY EXPERIENCE…..ALL VOLUNTEERS WILL BE BRIEFED ON WHAT THEY ARE REQUIRED TO DO.
Dave See will be looking after the duty rosters. Please phone him 0414832946 or email email@example.com asap. A couple of hours of your time will be great more would be even better.
With this fly in the Club hopes to raise funds towards the building of an amenities block for the CDFG as well as the funds being raised for RFDS and Angel Flight.
