Weather is looking good. Warm nights for the campers. =D>
Wind will be moderate and mostly on the runway. Tie downs will be recommended as the most wind will be at night.
Sunday afternoon the wind will be picking up. And Monday it will be wind still :lol:

Shuttle service is available to guesthouses within the town.
We also have a amazing amount of campers this year. =D>
Remember all food and drink will be at reasonable prices. No need to bring your own :) We do not charge entry fees so please support us at the bar and food stalls.
Aero club will be present as well as some RAASA representatives. It is great to have them at the events that represent them
See you all tomorrow.

Fantastic weekend, highly successful, worth ALL the effort of every one involved! =D> =D> =D>

Baie dankie Nylstroom Vliegklub, ons waardeer julle opoffering. En dra asseblief ons dank aan die Delta agentskap oor vir die vervoer. Andries Sprinkaan was baie goed, en op tyd vir op- en aflaai. =D> =D> =D>
