NO MORE FORSYTH FLYING.
So sorry folks. We have been in consultation with the Christchurch City Council, namely Head Ranger, Paul Devlin, Area Manager, Matt Rose, and ornithologist, Andrew Crossland, and they inform us that Lake Forsyth is now a wetland of national importance. There is birdlife and plant species they want to protect. This means that
no one can fly there. They are also planning to prevent the N.B. Powerboat Club and fishermen from using the lake and surrounds. No idea how they plan to control the
hoons who tear up the ground with their motorbikes and cars!
Out of the ashes, so to speak … We are going to hold a flying event this year on the same dates at our own field. Camping will be allowed and all types of models welcome, except for float planes as we don’t have a lake.
Come along, but let us know if you are coming (for catering purposes etc.)
