Welcome to our new-look website

in

As you can see the look and feel of the site has changed. Hopefully you will find it a bit more attractive and fun. The changes are far more than skin-deep however. The platform that runs the site has been changed to allow many new features, and you can expect to see some of these features appearing in the near future.
The most requested new feature is an online site guide, so look out for that over the next few weeks.

Auckland PG comp a huge success

in

The Auckland Paragliding comp was held over the weekend and was an
outstanding success. Three days, three valid tasks, with the third
being one of the most successful tasks in an Auckland PG comp in memory.

More details to follow, but a huge thanks to Darron for organising it.

Novice HG pilots want to fly at Muriwai

in

Hello All,
I have a group of Novice HG pilots (4 including myself). We fly at Kariotahi, but want to fly at Muriwai. We need to meet an experienced HG pilot who can show us the four sites at Muriwai (NW Face, Maori Bay, Jannie's and Southern Ramp) and lead us on some flights.
Who is the current site monitor?
If there are any other HG Novices (or others who want to fly with us), please let me know and I'll put you on our mailing list.
Cheers,
John Burton

Plans for flying at Kariotahi at end of December?

in

Fencepost forecasts moderate SW from the 27th onwards. Is anyone interested in Kariotahi over the next couple of days? Thursday 27th could be good later on in the day if the wind swings around to the west...

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.

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!!

Cloudbase Is Back

in

After a very long break, the official magazine of the Auckland Hang Gliding and Paragliding Club is back on-line.

You can now submit stories, questions, comments about sites, and anything else you want directly to the web site - just click 'Contribute'.

We'll be adding more stories soon, and hopefully some interesting new features like weekly polls, links to other resources, and details on who is flying where and when.
