"I'm LOST!" PLANE MARKERS
It has to be admitted that on occasion a plane has crashed in the surrounding bush!
The 7 markers placed around the field are intended to provide some small assistance in identifying where a plane has crashed in relation to the aerial map below, a copy of which is in the clubhouse. For example, if it is thought from the pilot box that a plane came down between markers 3 and 4, reference to the map may give some clues as to where to look. It is conceded that this system may not be of assistance in all circumstances, but it may help in some, particularly where the marked fire trail provides a reference point. Good Luck!
BUT, for safety:
1/ Do not go into the bush alone.
2/ Let someone else know where you are going searching.
3/ Take a working mobile phone, and advise the number to members remaining on the field
4/ Wear boots, long sleeves, and hat; and take water in summer.
