Queensland Sporting Hovercraft Club
A branch of the Australian Hovercraft Federation Inc (Vic)

Dear Air Cushion Vehicle enthusiast,
The last meeting was held on Monday, 15th March 2004 and even though we only had 4 members turn up we nevertheless planned a cruise for the Month.

Australian Hovercraft Federation news:-
There will be an Annual General Meeting of the Australian Hovercraft Federation Inc on Saturday 10th April 2004 at Lake Narracan, Moe, Gippsland, Victoria.
There are 3 registered state branches:
Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.

Delegates for the AGM are:
Ken Osmond, Peter Streader and Colin Dainty - Victoria.
Karl Bowman, Peter Hardi and Eugene Zanozin - New South Wales.
Peter Venn, Angus Kerr and Steven Odgaard - Queensland.

The AGM will be held in conjunction with the national rally which this year is being staged by the Victorian branch.
Any Australian state hovercraft club may apply for affiliation with the AHF Inc.
Current fee is $50 plus $15 per member to cover insurance and incorporation costs.
Experience has shown that sharing the insurance cost is an good option.
