My apologies for not attending the AGM however important matters at Rainbow Beach had to be addressed.
Firstly I would like to thank everyone who has volunteered their time and made a contribution in any form of activity for the club, without this we wouldn’t be where we are now.
Over the past year, a couple of activities had occurred, upgrading the Club website and provide a membership renewal via ecommerce. This has vastly improved our communication and membership services. There is also areas where we can improve and get more member engagement.
The Commonwealth Games this year we had to comply with CASA procedures for flying at our sites, well done to everyone being directly involved and members for adhering to protocol.
In addition to this, we have seen an increased number in members this year which I believe is attributed to our great Club Culture.

Flight of the Month
It was awarded to Scott Barrett ,who flew from Palmwoods to Yamba Via Lismore and little Italy, and gave a great ,but far too brief, as was very interesting talk of how he did it .
A truly awesome flight.
Private Launch Site
Col Rushton spoke on the protocols of this site.
This site had been closed for a couple of years, and now have new owners which Col has spoken too, and has now been allowed to fly there again ,but under strict guidelines. The site is more suited to hang gliders I believe ,due to limited bombouts.
You must contact Col before venturing out there.
