MAAQ Club Support

Flood recovery support

$10000 support funding was approved at the March General meeting to assist clubs affected by the recent floods. Affected clubs can apply for up to $1000 to assist with the costs of recovery.

Event support

Clubs can apply for funding up to $500 to assist with hosting events which promote aeromodelling activity. This is not just for competitive events but also social events with the overarching requirement for events held to foster increased activity such as interclub visits, come and try days etc.

As most of you know, LARCS suffered pretty badly with the recent flooding. Our pits will need to be completely rebuilt and we lost everything in the sheds and club house. Fortunately we have great support from the fantastic Cr Miriam Stemp. The importance of clubs developing strong relationships with their local council and demonstrating their value to the local community can't be understated.If there is anything the MAAQ can do to help you reach out to your local council please get in touch with us.Michael Hobson MAAQ (and LARCS) PresidentπŸ›©οΈπŸšLARCS Flood update and patronageIt was lovely to be able to catch up with the members of LARCS (Logan Aeromodellers Radio Control Society) on Saturday morning at the Rods Inc. clubhouse in Loganholme.The club are so resilient and have been through so much with their club facilities recently inundated by the floods again, but as always they are moving onwards and upwards and have a plan to get the club facilities up and running again as soon as possible with the support of Logan City Council and their members.It was also lovely to be given the honour of being named the patron for the club on Saturday. I know how important the club is to the community and what a big part it plays in the lives of its members. I will continue to support and fight for this club and hope they can remain in their current location well into the future. If you have a love of flying model planes, gliders, helicopters or drones, this is a great club for all ages and budgets.
