Kaimais HG League


Crusty HG pilots struggling with technologyCrusty HG pilots struggling with technologyAfter missing out the previous weekend as HG league was postponed, don't ask me why, and making some bad calls weather-wise prior to that, I was desperately keen to get in some thermal flying. League was called for Kaimais and weather forecast looked good.

Jeff Ripley sets a new Pukemore site record - 68.9km

Raglan HarbourRaglan Harbour At the AGM on Friday night, several of us thought that the forecast looked promising for the following day and decided Pukemore was a good option.

The morning's forecast seemed to differ a little from the previous evening, with more of an easterly wind swinging to the northeast as the day went on. Pukemore was still our target. A quick check of the site record showed Russell Read had flown 61Km on 06.02.99 - about time we updated that one, I thought.

Attached copy of Financial Statements to September 2008.

A copy will be available for review at AGM 7th November.

Members will be asked to ratify these.

Although in draft format, we anticipate the final statement will be the same therefore we will present these to avoid having to hold a Special General Meeting at another time just to ratify accounts.

To be held at 6.30 pm, 7th Nov, The Loft, 4 Sir Peter Blake Parade, Bayswater, Northshore.

How do you know it's the start of the season? It's AGM time!!

This year we have decided to combine our Annual General Meeting and our start-of-the-season BBQ together in to one never to be forgotten event!

Once again, Wings and Waves have generously offered us the use of their facilities at The Loft. It's a great spot to have a beer and a bite while watching the sun go down.

We will kick off the evening with the AGM agenda and move on to the BBQ as soon as we have things wrapped up.

This year there are a couple of extra things your club committee would like you to have a say about. That is nominations for the:

  • "Flying Spirit" award for outstanding contribution by a club member to the activities of the club or in the sport of hang gliding or paragliding, and also the
  • "Duck" (or should that be the, "oh, *uck !!" award) for the most noteworthy flying related "activity" that none of us would be proud to talk about!!

See below for nomination details (click on "Read more") ...

Go on, have some fun.

My daughter's tandem


It took a while for the conditions to be right, us to be home, Paddy to be available, and me to not flying myself. Her birthday was October last year and we flew on 4th May. Conditions were ideal and there were a quite a few pilots and other tandems happening at the same time. I was forunate as I got to go flying at the same time. Unfortunately I had my camera on too short a string and couldn't get my eye close to it to frame a shot. Still she had a great fly and really enjoyed getting `hands on' the control bar. It was fun and really easy I was informed.
