Saturday 24th April at our 2021 Convention in Middelburg sees the first draw in our MACH Programme. Prizes include a trip to the world’s biggest aviation event, Oshkosh, worth R35 000, an AV 100AKG Headset worth over R15 000, a Gill 12 V battery charger worth R2 000, and customised Chuck Norris chocks and syphon pipes!
Everyone who signed up for EAA membership in 2020 and 2021 will be in the draw. The more activities you participated in, the more names you have in the “hat”!
>About the points system
As MACH is measured in percentage or decimals, we have used the same to award our points. 0,01 equals 1 point. If you have, for example, 1,35 Mach, you have 135 Mach points. That means you have 135 names in the “hat”.
>How will the draw be managed
The draw will be done electronically using an independent random number generating system. The process will be overseen by a committee of EAA members.
Lamb on spit dinner will be available at R160 per head. Aircraft Judging awards plus live entertainment by Dix Vorster!
