Just a “Heads Up” reminder that AVON will be hosting the second annual “Ches Lockhart Cup” scale event on September 8/18, rain date the 9th.
Any and all scale planes are welcome, no matter the size. Foam, balsa, composite, electric, glow, gas...if it represents an actual plane it is welcome. That includes IMAC planes, civilian cruisers, military hardware, any year from the Wright brothers to present.
Landing fee of $10.00 lets you fly all day, eat at the BBQ, and also gives you a ballot to vote on the “Pilots’ Choice” award. Take the morning to cruise the pits and make your selection for the best plane there.
Weather Go/No Go will be posted here as soon as we know on Friday.

Well, again Avon was blessed with great Fun Fly weather. Bit of a breeze from the North(ish) led to a runway change partway through, but no one, that management heard, complained to management.
We had 30 registered pilots this year, with a few more planes than that on the field.
The field was immaculate, very capably prepared by Rae Coyle, John Walker, and Gary Boleszczuk. Thank you guys. And as usual, the BBQ was super. Chris, Dave, Don, Stitches John did a great job of feeding the masses.  Raa Raa
This year we seemed to have lot's of visitors, and we hope they enjoyed the event. "Scots' Corner" was especially busy... Wink
Touring the pits to find a plane to vote for was a challenge. Lots of super aircraft there. I think that challenge affected everyone. With all ballots tallied there was only a 1 vote difference between 1 & 2, 2 & 3, and so on. VERY close.
In the end, Mike Sabastien from Moncton took home the "Ches Lockhart Cup". His large scale Dakota was most impressive. Unfortunately the Dakota experienced engine trouble (never good on a twin) and dumped. Mike assures us it is rebuildable and will flt again. Pictured below are the Dakota, Steve Mosher's SBD, Al Coolens's FW180 and Jim Gavel's Tiger Moth.
Once the trophy had been presented we opened the field for general flying, so the "sport" non -scale planes could "legally" fly.
To everyone who helped, thanks a ton. Well done. Smiley

If you were at the event and took pics, how's about posting them here....???!!! Angry

And here are the "official" pictures!!!! Jeremy Dann took a lot of shots, and for our purpose there as the winners...
Mike Sebastien was selected, by Pilots' Choice of his peers, recipient the Lockhart Cup for 2018. Here he is receiving the cup, (which he has to bring back next year), and getting the "keeper" for posterity. Dan Marchand is a closet carver, and created this masterpiece....well done Dan!
What I noticed most on the original is the haunted look in the eyes of the pilot. I feel he must have ridden in some of my planes..
