South of Maioro

South of Maioro

It was time to explore a little further south from Maioro and finally see what was past the pine forest. The day was strong, fairly square and quite buoyant. The glide to the pines was easy, choosing to stay back on the higher back ridge. This ridge continues into the forest but the slope becomes a lot more gentle so care has to be taken that if one gets low they still have enough height to glide forward to the beach - about 600 - 800m in front.

PUKEMORE

Yesterday, I met Bruce Vickerman at the training hill at Pukemore. He told me that the owner of the land we drive through to get to the top take off, and the "airstrip" part, has been a bit tense about the use of his land.

SGM Preliminary Result

The unofficial results are in from the AHGPC Delegate.

It is expected a summary and Official SGM Minutes will be published via http://www.nzhgpa.org.nz/ reasonably promptly.

I am not personally sure which Remit (1a or 1b) was passed, however, one of them did.

  • 16 Yes
  • 11 No

The No’s were Auckland, Southern and Taranaki.

There is a minor anomaly with BOP, no vote maybe?

Dills Weather Station Up and Running

in

Hi everyone well 1 down and 2 to go,

Over the weekend Jeff and i got the Dills weather station up and running again.

We will get moirs working again soon.

 

the number is 

0212860874 

We may need to change the angle slighty, by our count adding 20° should be about right.

sorry we could not get it any closer but time ran out and Jeff had to go fly another 20km

 

The auckland comp is this weekend so maybe if i could have some help before the comp starts(if we go up that way)

thanks
