President’s Message

by Trevor Smith

I didn’t think not competing in the F5J World Championships would be so stressful. From August 12th to 17th my iPad and mobile had a good workout checking for Aussie team updates on Facebook and Gliderscore. The fantastic updates on the F5J Australia Facebook page by team manager Les Safarik, team members Andrew Meyer, Jim Houdalakis and Marcus Stent, and others such as Nick Wu certainly satisfied my desire for information. Congratulations to the team and of course to Les for all the pre-work and support he provided to the team. 

In EGFA-18 I mentioned that the AEFA were applying to the MAAA to be recognised as the Electric Glider National Special Interest Group (NSIG). Well I’m pleased to announce that our application was successful. The next step for the AEFA, in its capacity as the Electric Glider NSIG, was to apply to the MAAA to run the Australian team selection trials for the 2021 F5J World Championships. The AEFA has proposed running these selection trials as part of the 5th Annual Australian F5J Trophy at Cootamundra in November 2020. Our application was last week submitted to the MAAA and we anxiously await the MAAA’s response   

Position vacant - Since the AGM in April the AEFA has been down one committee member, the Vice President. If you would like to join the AEFA committee, please contact me and I will give you a heads up on what it might entail. Unfortunately, there are no perks with the position. I tried for a company plane, but it was turned down. Until next time.....Trevor Smith
