Absolutely perfect flying conditions set the stage for yet another 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 40 aviators (flying no less than 30 aircraft) battling it out for first place. But as always there can only be one winner. And so it was that John Hilton from Caboolture, flying a Victa Airtourer, took the coveted trophy with an unbeaten hand of AA22J, becoming the BVSAC Fun Fly Poker Champion for 2017.
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 (some of which displayed highly dubious talent) and many a tale was told.
Could a day at an airfield get any better than this ??
