nsw state titles wrap up
The Central West Classic comp has been successfully run. 25 pilots competed for 5 competition days, with lots of good flying done.
Results are located at wow.asn.au.
Josh Woods took it out, but he was pushed all the way by Jonny Durand flying a Gecko. Guy Hubbard came third, and relatively new to inland (but not new to HG) Johnboy Spencer (a NHGC member) came in forth.
A lot of low hour and kingposted pilots competed, and significant personal bests were achieved.
Just to prove the red streamers showed us up yesterday, here is a link to Jubbs' take off
Good to see the enthusiasm
Saturday was flyable, so our novices proved. Whilst all of us old fogies were standing around they were doing it!
I watched Kadman (Sorry don't know if that's spelled right), the second generation of Bartons, taking off with gusto. He was followed by Jubbs whom I've been hearing great things about. Jubbs was egging Ward on, not sure if he actually flew but he was certainly set up.
Conditions were average SSW with some SW thrown in.
The day was good looking though so here are a few pictures to show off our familiar coast line
As you may or may not know, there has been significant work carried out recently at Merewether to clear trees/shrubs down to a much lower level than we have ever been previously able to achieve. This has been due to the excellent work carried out by previous committee members in establishing a line of communication and understanding with National Parks and Wildlife rangers responsible for that area.
The AGM for 2015 is on 29th July 7.30 pm.
The AGM (annual general meeting) is being held Wednesday night 29th July at Souths Leagues club Morgan St Merewether. The meeting will start after the AGM dinner. The Dinner is in the Bistro restaurant and starts about 6.00pm, so we expect the AGM to start about 7.30pm.
