W&W Start of Season Party

in

Wings & Waves Start of Season Party
Friday, 14 September, 4pm onwards
at our loft in Bayswater.
UPDATE:
It seems we confused people with the time we set for our W&W party
We said from 4pm because a bunch of people were keen to come in early to sort out some gear and gliders etc. Really, we were thinking of an evening event with an earlyish start, with quite a bit of food, drinks (absolutely in moderation, as always...), music, great pictures, good company etc.

Pukemore is closed !!!

Lambing season has started.
We were at Pukemore today having an unsuccesful attempt at flying (although it did look good at first), and we were told that the site is closed from today until the end of October for lambing. There will be ewes and lambs at the "airstrip" and the owner does not want vehicles going past.
Unless.... you are prepared to WALK up to the main hill. The owner is okay with that, but as always, check at the farm house first and make sure you get the okay before you go anywhere.
We will post an update when lambing is over.
Cheers,
Xen.

Dills Hill is closed!!

It's lambing time...
Dills is closed until Monday 12 September due to lambing. Please give ewes and lambs a wide birth (no pun intended) after this date as there may be some late arrivals.
Many thanks to Mark Neville, site monitor for the update.
Cheers,
Xen.

Paeroas is closed!!

I just got this from Rick from the Waikato club. Please read and abide by what it says. If anyone has any further to add please let everyone know via this topic.
Cheers,
Xen.
All,
A long story short.
Recently the flying community has fallen out of favour with the Managers of the access road up to the Paeroa Range in the Rotorua area. The gate has been permanently locked preventing any access. I am currently negotiating a return of our continued access, via the road which they maintain.

Season has started!!

Get your gear ready!
I thought having a topic where everyone can post their flights/adventures would be useful. You may have seen Daron's post elsewhere. Here is your chance to share your amazing flights with the rest of us mortals.

Speed Flying this weekend!

in

Francois Bon, the speed flying guru from France, is going to be in NZ for a while to demo speed flying. He is the guy who made the spectacular videos going of Mt Blanc and other major European peaks. Have a look at his web page: www.acro-base.com
We are going to be at Ruapehu this weekend from Friday to Monday. Join us! You can call on 021-727 013
After that, we are doing some demos on the South Island.

Whos interested in winch launching at Druy?

in

We have an opportunity to recondition a winch which has been dragged out of the corner of a paddock....BUT just as important is that we have a place to use it and store it for use whenever we want, once we have rebuilt it.
This will be for any club member who is interested in doing seriously high tows from Drury ... Perfect for when its not on at Kario.... just pop to Drury and do some thermaling.
However before we spend our hard earned cash, the club needs to know 2 things
1 Who is intrested...please register your intrest. You must let us know!!

Start-of-Season Get-Together

in

Hi,
as I hosted a End-of-Season party, I thought might as well do one for the start of season.
I decided for Sunday, 9th of September from 5pm onwards.
I'll supply the BBQ and venue... so it's BYO for drinks and food.
Please sms me to 021-980496 or email alex@monsoon-pictures.com if you are going to come and with how many friends... I'll then reply with the address. That way I can get a feeling of the numbers.
Btw... HG Pilots are welcome to.
Please spread the message....
Cheers Alex
