Winter Flying

Hi There.

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

Still doing dicko

What's gonna happen when the lights go on?

For now we can still fly, well last I looked any way, but apparently there is wiring for lights every 5 meters next to the path :-(

This was last Thursday 15th Jan

Stellar job by all those involved in creating it!

Here is a little vid of the day.

A not so hot, HOT day

Last Wednesday was a classic Dixon Park FUN day

I didn't count the total amount of Fun's there but if you were in one you would certainly not have felt alone!

Just as I pulled in to Dixon Park Jason Hunter came in for a touch down, feather light, in his new Fun. We had a short conversation which ended because he used the sentence "would you like to have a fly of it!" Ya never seen a harness come out of it's bag so quick :0)
After a couple of hours Jason finally got his glider back, big smiles!!!

Rod Prater (Murray)

Hi All,
This week marks one year since we lost our good friend Rod. It is the anniversary of the passing of a good friend and all round great human being.
Rod was passionate about life and lived it to the fullest. He gave up a trade to replace it with a passion for wood working and his business is now operated by his remaining family and Jason his ex-apprentice now turned master crafts man.
If you are ever in the Peats Ridge area stop in to the Rod Murray Gallery and say hi to Odette. The location and detail can be found on the web site.

Gotta love the flying season it is

Man are we getting spoiled here in Newcastle. I'm now in my 12'd week in a row with flying time. Looks like today will be the third day in a row this week. I'm not a greedy man but "Keep It Coming"
Here is a little vid from last Sunday.

Cheers

A Word of Thanks from Odette Prater

Odette is not familiar with computers and wanted us to know how she feels about what we have been able to do since Rod's untimely passing. So here is what she would like to pass on.

I just want to thank Allan McMillan, all the wonderful crowd who came to Rocket's funeral, some of you I knew, others I met for the first time, and all those who sent their wonderful words of support.
Thank you for the flowers, and also the beautiful words and video you posted on the website.
You, this beautiful group of Hangliders, are an amazing lot.
