Discussions related to competitions.


Just after the recent AGM in Auckland on August 9, some of the HG delegates met to appoint the Hang Gliding Competition Committee for the coming season and discuss the state of the comp scene in NZ.

Winter Kario fun ridge race and BBQ for HG and PG

I am organizing an AHGPC social event and BBQ at Karioitahi Beach this winter (May/June) when there is a fine ridge-soarable Saturday. (A wind strength of around 12 knots should be enough for both HG and PG pilots to participate.) 

The "AHGC RIDGE RACE" trophy was last awarded to Geoff Coombs in 1998. Now, 16 years later, it's time to revist the glory days of the last century, the fun times at the beach, and those glorious beach BBQs. Let's re-activate this old HG trophy and add one for the PG pilots. All will be welcome, from beginners to advanced pilots.

Hopefully it will find it's first rightful owner next weekend.
