Where is it: Corner of Klumpp and Logan Roads, Upper Mt Gravatt
What's it all about: Brisbane's very own paper plane championships, where the aim for everyone is to have fun!
How can I join in: It's just finished its second year running, hopefully many more to come!
Tell me more: Inspired by the movie 'Paper Planes', these championships have been organised by a local family intent on seeing kids out having fun and raising some money for charity! It's a simple concept - grab a few pieces of paper, make your best plane, and throw! There were 3 separate competitive events - expression session, longest throw and longest airtime - and there's also plenty of time to practice and have fun. We spent the week prior to the event coming up with our best designs, but we were no match for the finalists who's planes regularly fly over 30 metres! A great little event that got the whole family excited about paper planes! I'm sure that there will be many more paper plane championships in our family before the next event comes along!
