Afternoon tea for the workers

Thanks to a generous donation from Besselaar's Pies and Pasties their was afternoon tea for all the workers. The cakes and donuts were a big hit with some of the 'Little Workers' as well.

Operation 'Paint the workshop' and make it leak proof

Wayne, Marta and Ziggy have been busy painting the ceiling of the workshop. After many valiant years of service it's time to give it a bit of a makeover. So now it's getting a fresh coat of white, just like it had before.

The second part of the makeover is to install some flashing between the tug hangar roof and the workshop roof to fix the leaks that have plagued the workshop over the years. So now the mold is gone and the room is good enough to run gliding courses and competitions. It might even be good enough to repair and maintain gliders. So a big thank you to the team climbing around on the roof.

Congratulations Marta

As good Australians we will claim anyone who is successful on the world stage as one of our own.  So well done to Marta Najfeld who took out fourth place in club class at the recent woman's world gliding championships. Even though Marta was representing Poland, we know deep down she was really doing it for Horsham.

Now seriously, great job Marta. Club class flew five days out of the possible ten. Marta placed; third on day 1, eighteenth on day 2, fourth on day 3, sixth on day 4 and first on day 5.So a splendid effort all round.

So Marta we now claim you as our latest international representative. Our very own "Aussie Pole". And good on you Ziggy for your support for Marta.
