The Member of the Year award was created in memory of Jeff Molloy, a young member of the club whose life ended too soon. Jeff's enthusiasm for the hobby was strong and he was always fun to have around a meeting or the flying field, as you never knew what he would say or do next. To honour Jeff's memory, the club decided to create the memorial trophy and award it each year to the person who contributed most to the club and local modeling environment that year. It's not about who has the nicest plane or can fly the fastest or highest. It's about acknowledging personal commitment to improve the hobby for all of us in some way.

 

2021

This year's Member of the Year is Keith PierceKeith has been instrumental during many club projects. He painted our shipping container, helped repair our damaged ride-on mower and is a one man brush cutting machine. Coincidentally, he is also a very good pilot and exceptional scratch builder. As the incoming 2022 President, we don’t expect he will give any less effort to that position than he has as a club volunteer. Congratulations Keith.
