Lake Forsyth, Locked and loaded for this weekend.

[Breaking news…  The Lake level has dropped dramatically in the last couple of days, Darren H. reports it was opened up to the sea so hopefully the puddles will be less of an issue by the time Saturday dawns.  Have a great weekend everyone!]

The Lake Forsyth fly-in is ready to go next weekend (Sat. 25, Sun 26 August).

The lake level is a little high but we have prepared a new strip which is longer than previous years. Please bring your gumboots, especially the helicopter guys, as there are patches of low-lying ground where there are a few puddles. The forecast is good for the event.

Have a look at the video taken this last weekend.
