Kario Safe Zone

By the time you read ths you may have seen the hg pic in the Herald's Sideswipe column of someone landing at Kario. The writer complained about a glider coming in to land directly over them while they were on horseback.

 

We do stretch the rules a little landing where we do - officially we're supposed to land further up the beach from the car park, but there's never been an issue. I hope this doesn't change it.

 

Landing anywhere near horses should be a no-no though. There's rarely an excuse for it - you've got plenty of time on approach to size up ALL the hazards coming in - be it walking families, cars coming back from Port Waikato or those effing dickheads on the dirtbikes (which the writer also complained about).

 

Please check for horses on the beach as you're thinking about coming in (i.e. when you're still several hundred feet up) and adjust your plans accordingly. (PGs as well).

 

Cheers
