SAAANZ BBQ at North Shore 2-12-2017

The Sport Aviation Association of New Zealand (Auckland Branch) held their Christmas BBQ at North Shore back on the 2nd of December but due to moving matters and general busyness I did not post about it at the time.  However I now rectify this omission with the following:

Evan Wheeler flew in from Patumahoe in his Murphy Rebel ZK-WEM.

Steve Gwilliam flew his Jodel D 11 ZK-RSB down from Whangarei.  Steve told me that he regularly checks out the blog.  Great to meet you Steve.

and coming from a different point of the compass, Chapter Newsletter Editor Gavin Magill flew over from Whitianga in his Zenith CH 601 XL ZK-ZXZ.

 Dennis Horne and Manfred Scherbius flew up from Ardmore in Dennis's Jabiru J200 ZK-ORN.  They are regular attendees at flyins and I saw them the week previously at Dargaville for lunch.

I probably wouldn't usually photograph a Piper Tomahawk, but ZK-EVD2 looked so nice in this great photo spot outside Julian Coles' new hangar.
