Auckland Region PG comp 2/3 March 2013

Hi Folks,

Okay this is it... I am taking the plunge and officially calling an Auckland Regional Competition for the coming weekend:

Sat 2nd and Sun 3rd of March 2013

There are no reserve dates for this competition. If it's on it's on, if it's off it's off.


The weather looks good but it is too early to tell yet where we will head but likely sites are:

* Dills Hill

* Moirs Hill

* Kaimais

* Paeroas


Revised competition rules and updated ladder

The PG competition ladder has been updated to include results from the 4 leagues held so far this season.

Second reserve mandatory for Cat 1 Comps

Second Reserve Mandatory from May 1st 2014
During its recent Autumn meeting, CIVL Bureau reviewed reports from accidents, some fatal, in Category 1 and 2 events.

Auckland Region PG comp 17/18 Nov

Now that some spring weather is starting to show up its time to get your gear and your head ready for the xc season. To kick it off I have booked some great flying conditions for 17/18 Nov so we can have a little competition. I'm aiming at local sites like Moirs, Bridges, Dills etc but we can be flexible about going south to the Waikato if necessary. I'll make a final call on Thursday night 15th  to say if its on and where to meet.

In anticipation of the comp in Feb... is it possible that someone could point me in the direction of a waypoint file please?

Thanks and best regards,







Message from Dave Gibbs, Canungra

Hi All,


I'm pleased to announce that registration for the Canungra Cup 2012 is now open. This is the first AAA cat 2 comp of the coming season, and this year is looking to be bigger and better than before. Thanks to our many Sponser's, the prize pool is so huge, almost everyone will be a winner. We also have mentoring for the newer comp pilots with evening lectures and as usual we have our legendary retrieve service ( includes Bribane airport pick up ).

Comp season and a great video

Just to keep us going over winter there is a team of ( mostly) Auckland pilots heading off to compete at the Canadian Nationals in August. Robbo got it going, then Xen, Evan, Nick and Rodger jumped in and Kris Ericksen has joined the team from Wellington.

To keep the rest of you keen over winter think about the Australian comps for next season. Dates are Canungra 20-27 Oct, Bright 12-18 Jan, Corryong 20-6 Jan. Here is a very nice video of the last Corryong comp

It fits in with the current bid for a NZ Open in Wanaka 2-10 Feb.
