Absolutely perfect flying conditions set the stage for the best ever Brisbane Valley Sport Aviation Club's annual Fun Fly Poker Run. In this game of good fortune, the players find their way to several airfields in the district, selecting a random card in an envelope at each location. The winning poker hand is completed back at Watts Bridge with two cards drawn by the house.
Competition was fierce with nearly 50 aviators (flying no less than 35 aircraft) battling it out for first place. But as always there can only be one winner. And so it was that Bill Coman from Redcliffe, flying a Cessna 182G, took the coveted trophy and became the undisputed BVSAC Fun Fly Poker Champion for 2016.
Now as it happens, Bill has his Cessna outfitted with several cameras so we can all ride along with him and his co-pilot Selina as they go round the course picking up their winning hand.
And as the sun set over the airfield the Australian Aerobatics Club - Queensland Chapter opened their clubroom doors for Christmas in July.
Great atmosphere, great wining and dining, some live entertainment and just the odd tall story to be told.
Could a day at an airfield get any better than this ??
