2016 GRASS ROOTS FLY-IN CANCELLED


The unprecedented winter rains across south eastern Australia this winter with further flooding falls in the past 36 hours have seen Leeton and surrounding areas receive another 40mm of rain and the forecast for the week ahead is for another 20-30mm for the region.


Given the current status of Leeton airfield and the forecast of further rain this week, the Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel this year's Grass Roots Fly-in and focus our efforts on preparing for our Spring Fly-in and Annual General Meeting at Temora next month.


We would like to acknowledge and thank Bob Rankin and the Leeton Aviators Club for their hard work and preparation, hopefully we can return to Leeton in 2017 under much clearer and drier skies and firmer ground.
