JG I seem to remember another thread with names of those going but I haven't had any luck finding it yet

Yeh, I did a search as well but couldn't find it......

So, who else is interested in going to Narromine??? Those of us who went in the early days remember those as the best fly-ins ever! Then it went downhill as it got more organized and commercial. I reckon we could do it again, just needs keen fliers to show up. They've always been welcoming, and all we need is already there, without a big deal organization and sponsorship....

I have been to narromine a couple of times and stayed over while enroute to other places but have yet to go to a fly-in there so would be keen to go to one

 

Who knows perhaps Natfly will return there one day

Looking forward to it ,great that the aero club is organising it,I never understood why the Ra aus took it away.See you with Easter .

Well they aren't going to explain it now! At the time there was a change of guard in Narromine and I think they lost their shakers and movers. But RAA put it out to auction and Temora council put in a bid and Narromine council didn't get one in, in time.

Narromine council lost interest.

 

Temora offered more

 

Valuable few organisers lived at Temora

 

Interesting fact Narrromine lost the Lowy air museum too, was slated to be there but council uselessness prevailed.

 

Need to put out more than a tender if you want people to value what you have on offer

I agree with that as I had to do it when I met my wife. 008_roflmao.gif.692a1fa1bc264885482c2a384583e343.gif.

But the fact is that the Fly-Ins at Narromine were very successful and popular, 200+ aircraft attending.

 

When it moved to Temora it declined until failing completely.....

As I have said before I have been to both Temora and Narromine but not to a fly-in , ie Natfly, can somebody tell me what they think of both places and what they think is the best venue for Natfly?

 

From what I have been hearing most people seem to think Narromine is or was the best venue with a great atmosphere and lots of activity and socalising happening, if that is the case should we all be pushing to have Natfly returned to it's Home .

 

How about we start some kind of vote ( with reasons ) for liking or not liking one venue or the other, I for one would like to see some people's thoughts on this.

 

Cheers

As they say, you can please some of the people some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time.

 

Wherever it's held, distance to travel and limitations in accommodation will always restrict some from attending.

 

Narromine certainly used to be well attended, but could have been even more so, with the availability of better visitor transport to and from the venue.

 

I for one, would like to see it back there.

I have been to both, and from my observation, it looks like the atmosphere at Narromine was better, despite the councils input.

 

Temora has lots of structured input, but needs more informal flyer's input, or is it "to much structure pushing the flyers out"

Narromine Phoenix Easter Fly-In

 

The Narromine Fly-Ins of old were the best by far that I have ever attended, so sure would like to see them grow again... A lot of fond memories of times at Narromine.....

 

Narromine is such a great place, and has an excellent local supportive atmosphere...... Midway between Brisbane and Melbourne, so is the preferred overnight stop when we fly that route..... Convenient accommodation right at the field, and a short walk to the pubs in town unless the aero club is open...

 

Sure hoping that enough flyers will turn up to make it a growing success once again.....

 

I was really looking forward to going this year to help support that effort, but serious family matters have taken priority... And unfortunately two mates from SE Qld who were also planning to go have encountered family and medical priorities.... Bummer......
