We will be leaving CHCh on Tuesday, staying night in Wellington, then arriving when we feel like it on the Wednesday.

Hey Tony, maybe text me if its superb, unmissable flying weather on Wednesday morning and I may get out of bed before 10am. 027 341 3154

Cheers for letting me know Jon

Re: 2011 NZ Rumble - Feb 17 to 20

Hi guys,
Well we've had a wee bit of rain up here Fri night & Sat morning with SH1 being closed due to flooding just south of Springhill entrance. I'd hoped to get some practice in so thought I'd better check out the state of the strip after seeing one of the houses surrounded by water on 3News last night. Instead I will be mopping silt out of the clubroom as there was over a foot of water went through. See photos below & let's hope we don't have more flooding before next months comp here.

Just spent most of the day cleaning and throwing out couches out it wasn't fun. there were two full size planes in the hangers one had a lucky escape but the other out had a little bath.
