It's almost AGM time!!

It's almost THAT time of the year again, when both hang glider and paraglider pilots voluntarily come together to exercise their democratic powers in the AHGPC Annual General Meeting. As always, there is the important business of voting for a new committee, ratifying the accounts and finding out who won the Duck Award.

 

When: 7.30pm, Wednesday 7th December

 

Where: the Wings & Waves loft, Sir Peter Blake Parade, Bayswater

 

Committee meeting - Wednesday 2 November

Tomorrow night at 7.30pm we will be having our monthly committee meeting at the CT Club in Remuera, which all members are welcome to attend.

 

With recent discussion around whether to continue with Airborne in its current print incarnation, it would be useful to have members put their views forward on this, and any other issues.

 

Pleasse let me know via email at grahamsurrey@gmail.com if you plan to attend, and any issues that you would like to have added to the agenda.

THE GREAT SITE EXPLORER COMPETITON - Back again for this season

If you look at the site guide, you will see over 30 launch sites listed.

How many have YOU flown?

Here is you chance to seek out and explore, and let everyone else know about it.

The Site Explorer Competition is open to all pilots HG and PG and those under instruction.

All you have to do is:

  • Fly as many different launch sites from the Site Guide as you can between the 1st of September 2011 and the 1st of May 2012
  • Record the site you have flown on the Site Explorer Competition Page.

Simple!

Only one flight per site counts, so you can't go crazy flying Kario, although there are a number of launch sites you can tick off at Kario in one day ;-).

The Site Explorer Leader board will show who is currently in the lead. The winner will receive a suitable prize and kudos at the end of season party.

This competition is only open to AHGPC members so you have to login first. If you can't access the competition page even after logging on contact the website admin.

So, where the bloody hell are ya?

Cheers.

Site Explorer Competition - we have a winner

Now that the summer flying season has well and truly come to an end, it is time to close the Site Explorer competition and announce the winner.

And if you hadn't guessed it, the winner is -

Jeff Ripley

Tied for a (distant) second place are Brett Disley and Wayne Rohrs.

The lavish prize that Jeff will be awarded has not been determined yet, but it will most likely be the honour of fixing some of our weather stations.

Mid-winter club social event.

in

Hi all,

 

At last month's club committee meeting the idea of holding a mid-winter get-together at a buffet restaurant, such as Valentine's was mooted. I've created a poll to gauge the level of support for this idea amongst members before any further organising is undertaken, so please take the time to vote.

 

If you have any alternative ideas for a club social activity then please feel free to post a comment with your suggestion as well.

 

Cheers,

Graham.

Would you attend a mid-winter club social get-together at a buffet restaurant e.g. Valentine's?

Food and drinks at Wings & Waves THIS Saturday!

Like every year, we invite all club members and their friends (even hangies) for some infamous Chili con Carne made by Reuben, some music and a catch up at our loft in Bayswater. We would love to see you all there, especially we since the annual social event at the Paeroas on Easter did not happen and due to not much flyable weather, we feel we have not seen much of each other. Time to catch up!

Please come by on Saturday, 11th June, from 6pm at the our loft in Bayswater! BYO drinks, we will make food.
