Hi everyone,

Cheers, Xen.

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

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.


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?

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.
