Site Explorer Winner

Time to announce the most eagerly awaited competition results of the year...

The Site Explorer Winners are...drum roll... Tony Seaman and Jeff Rippley.

They ended up equal on 12 sites flown. As is our tradition, they are the lucky recipients of a fantastic IOU.

 

The Site Explorer competition has been restarted and is now accepting flights for this season from Septmber onwards. 

WOF at Vauxhall School, Devo

Just to confirm: WOFs tomorrow, Tuesday 30 October, from 4pm, are at Vauxhall school in Devonport. Morrison Ave, near Narrow Neck and Fort Takapuna, off Vauxhall Road. We are using the new school hall should the weather not play ball. 

Afterwards, the Club is putting on a sausage sizzle, so that we can all catch up after far too little flying recently. BYO drinks.

See you there!

2012 NZHGPA AGM & EEM – The Queenstown Causality

Hello Auckland Members

 

The new 2012/13 NZHGPA Executive

PG Instructor and Tandem Seminar 28. September

We are running a PG instructor and tandem seminar on Friday, 28 September, at our place in Bayswater. 26 Beresford Street.

Apparently, there are all new CAA requirements for instructor ratings, a new form and a new process to obtain such rating. Still, there is nothing on the NZHGPA website or the current forms as per today. Hence, we will run a low key seminar just to avoid any more confusing. To catch up with the experienced instructors once in a while to discuss what's new around the world is fund and makes sense to us either way.

Canadian Champs 2012 Task 5

in

Kris: "Just finished final day at Canadian PG competition. Had a four hour 15 min flight! Matty Senior and Evan Lamberton both in goal. Final day of the Canadian PG comp. Another "cats cradle" task, with a lot of pilots going down at the second turn point. Prize giving dinner kicked off at about 9pm and the winners of the comp announced at 11:30pm. "Pemberton Time" ruled until the end!! Denis Cortella won with Matt Senior coming second, Evan Lamberton came 6th.

Final Results

Duders site news

HG pilots have 4WD access to the Duder north-facing takeoff site again. I have made contact with Paul, the site ranger at the Duder ARC Park. He is sympathetic to HG and is very helpful. His mobile phone number is 021-676-300. The land-line to the office is 536 6007. I find his mobile phone is a better way to reach him. Paul mentioned that hang gliding is one of the approved activities listed in the records pertaining to the use of the Duder park. Paul is on our side, so let’s make sure we can keep him there.
