Saturday

Pilots must check NOTAM’s and follow directions on the ground, but it is proposed all runways will be open to aircraft.

On Saturday a Car Rally will run from Maryborough Railway Station to Clunes historic town (Book Town and star of Mad Max 1 movie) at 1pm and finishing at the aerodrome taking in local attractions.  Pilots and their crews wishing to join the car rally will be most welcome and matched with a car taking part.  The rally will cost $5 per person.  If you wish to participate just let us know when you register on arrival at the Terminal Building. You will need to be registered at the airport by 12 noon to enable us to transport you to the rally.

At 4 pm the Car Rally will finish at the aerodrome to coincide with a Mayoral Reception to be held in the Museum Hangar.  All visiting pilots and their crews are invited to attend.

There will be a group attending the Ripples Restaurant for dinner starting 6.00 pm on Saturday night. Experience is that venues are very busy and it would be best to book. There are many good places to dine including local restaurants, pubs and clubs.  Bookings are strongly advised.

Accommodation is available in Maryborough for the Saturday night, for a list of options please visit http://www.visitmaryborough.com.au/. If you wish to camp with your aircraft please let us know when you register.
