Mathoura man Douglas Henwood has been trying for 12 months to form a model aircraft club but so far has had no luck.
The proposed club, Mathoura and District Radio Model Aircraft Club, invites people who are interested in flying model planes.
‘‘All they have to do is give me a call and I’ll take care of it from there,’’ Mr Henwood said.
Members will have the opportunity to fly every Sunday, enjoy displays of the planes and social gatherings, and enter scale model competitions.
Mr Henwood had a stall at the recent Mathoura Festival where he had a huge display of model aircraft.
‘‘I encourage people who do fly (model planes) to get in contact with me,’’ he said.
He can be contacted on 5884 3399, or by email on email@example.com.
