JULY 2018

Hello to all once again from U3A Kilmore & District Inc.

I hope you are staying snug and warm despite the winter weather which is upon us.

The trip to the National Aviation Museum (as mentioned last month) went off as planned.

I must admit the long car journey to Moorabbin airport was a bit tedious but it was well worth the time.

'Fred‘ was our excellent guide who had many interesting tales about some of the exhibits on display. In some cases the aeroplane was not in its entirety. However enough of every aeroplane was there to show it off. In many cases parts of the fuselage were removed to display the 'innards‘ at that particular point. The museum has a hands on policy and the pilot training simulators had a good workout; all of the members who tried. managed to crash their aircraft while 'flying‘. It was a good day enjoyed by all who went. Thank you to Denis, the coordinator of 'Planes, Trains & Caravanning'

We recently held a Trivia morning tea which was a resounding success. Much credit goes to Paul Brinsden who was both researcher and adjudicator for the day. The questions ranged from difficult to easy and covered diverse categories. After struggling to find all the answers everyone enjoyed a refreshing cuppa and the delicious fare provided on the BYO plates.
