AHGPC Club night - How to fly XC from Moirs Hill

Wednesday 14 October - 7.30pm
The Dominion Bar, 234 Dominion Rd, Mt Eden
See below and G+ community invite for details. See you there!

Flying XC looks like fun, how do I get into it?Well spring has certainly arrived and it's the time of year when the thoughts of many pilots return to the skies, as the reappearance of warmer weather and puffy cumulus clouds signals the start of a new XC season.

With this in mind, the AHGPC is holding a club night to get both new and experienced pilots back into the swing of things after the long winter lay-off. We'll be having three speakers (Graham Surrey, Eva Keim & Steve Dwyer) give talks on different aspects of flying from Moirs Hill, Auckland's most consistent XC site.

Topics covered will include:

  • How do I know what a good XC day looks like?
  • Getting up and away from Moirs - tips and tricks for new XC pilots
  • The logistics of flying XC on a hang glider

This evening should prove especially useful for those pilots who have got their PG2 or HG Novice rating and want to stretch their wings beyond coastal soaring this summer, although there should be plenty to interest more experienced pilots as well.

We have a great new venue for this club night, The Dominion Bar in Mt Eden. We have exclusive use of the upstairs room for the presentations and we encourage you to turn up early and enjoy a good meal and a beer or two in the bar downstairs beforehand. The Dominion has kindly agreed to waive the room hire fee for us on a trial basis, so if we can repay that by ensuring a good amount of turnover at the bar that'd be great!

The dinner menu is available here and if you're keen on a meal beforehand it has been requested that you pre-order by emailing Emma, the manager (emma@dominionbar.co.nz). If you're going to have a meal it's recommended that you be there for 6.30pm so that you've got enough time to eat before we kick off the presentations at 7.30pm.

It promises to be a great night with plenty of opportunity for discussion and catching up with other club members. We hope to see you there!
