Blackridge & District Model Flying Club
The Johnny Weir Memorial Trophy
Johnny Weir was one of the founder Members of the Blackridge & District Model Flying Club when it started up in 1975. Johnny was a modelling master craftsman who was highly skilled in fine model construction using traditional methods and materials. He was interested in all aspects of modelling including rubber power, gliding, scale and anything in between. Models built by Johnny were immaculately constructed and finished and usually flew well. Always willing to share his techniques and tips, Johnny was a great Ambassador for the hobby of Aeromodelling.
The Trophy was donated by fellow Club member Archie Redmond.
