Ridge Soaring in the Wattagans

Hi All

A few of us were lucky enough to get to try the new Hunter Lookout launch.

Stellar job by all those involved in creating it!

Here is a little vid of the day.

Cheers

A nice day out

I stepped off Taylors today, into a 700up and flew home. I packed up on my front lawn. Here are some pictures.



Easter at Pete's

Easter at Denman...Great flying, perfect weather, no incidents and smiles all round. Just another typical Yarrawa weekend.

Simon West got his just rewards on Saturday by getting up and away early while the streets lined up overhead. In no time he was at base at 6000` and on his way to Aberdeen with a juicy tailwind up the clacker. The early bird does get the worm it seems.

NHGC Clean Up Australia Day

Thanks to everyone that showed up.

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!!!

Video: 

Hot enough for ya?

Strange how these things happen but we just couldn't predict whether Denman would be epic or tragic. As it turned out we were spot on on both counts.
Saturday was hot...damn hot. The temp was predicted to hit 39 and we may have had some to spare. A perfect day to slip on a bit of flying gear and see who would faint last. Ebbs, Ward, Shane, Rory and Troy are always up for this kind of fun so we set up whilst Pete readied the trike.

getting into Empire Park

Back by popular demand.

My video explaining how I fly my approach into Empire park.

Enjoy

Getting on top of top landings

A video of some top landings at Merewether from directly above launch.

The biggest issue I hade was keeping station over launch and the gliders in shot whilst keeping an eye out for other traffic.

It worked out ok, but looks like I am way up high due to the wide angle on the GoPro but I was only 80 feet above launch. it was harder to stay there than it looks on the video.

Enjoy the vid, and Merry Christmas to all our members. Have a safe holiday, will see you on the hill in the new year.

Pete and Chris say "Thanks NHGC"

The Marhienes of Denman have just been on the blower (you may now rise).

Pete asked me to pass on his heartfelt appreciation for the Xmas hamper from the club. He's tickled pink. Christine says it won't go astray on the big day and sends her thanks to all.
And a big thanks to Adriaan for delivering the package.

In other less-than-great news Christine's hip has gone bung again. Luckily she's back home, pain free and soldiering on.
I'm sure that everyone in the club will be wishing her a speedy recovery.
