    Indoor Flying at ETSA in February 2012
    Those magnificent flying men who did not wish to stay home on a balmy night on the 16th of February, were found throwing their favourite indoor model towards the brilliant lighting of ETSA Park’s netball stadium, resulting in another great monthly outing.
