Sad News Rod Prater - A Great Loss for the Club

NHGC,
I am very sad to inform you of the loss of a very good friend and long time member of the club. "Rocket" Rod Prater known to some by his business name Rod Murray passed away this week in a tragic rock fishing accident. Always cheerful, always ready for a road trip, an adventure, and a fly somewhere, Rod was a good mate to both myself and many others in the club. The club will be sending flowers to Rod's family, and will no doubt have a presence at the funeral, details of which will be made available when known.
Here's an article which appeared in the Newcastle Herald:

Christmas in July

Christine is home from hospital, and she and Pete are up for some guests.

How about a Christmas in July on Saturday 21st, a day's aerotowing followed by a dinner in Denman at the pub.

Your thoughts?

Fencing In Strezi Car Park

Just passing Strezi this morning and noticed the fencing in the car park so made some enquiries. I thought the council may have started work on the Bather's Way up there but it was put up by a builder who had been contracted to remove asbestos from the vandalised roof of the garage.

Landings

The OZ report has post by Jim Rooney on landings. Jim says the critical thing is that the tips stall before the nose. I know I've had landing where the glider gets ahead of me and I whack in. This is because the nose stalls. You can read the article here;

IMPORTANT - Draft Bathers Way plan

Newcastle City Council has released a draft plan for changes to the Bathers Way. Bathers Way is a shared walking/cycling path along the coast through Newcastle. The amendments to the bathers way include a re-routing of the pathway through one of our launch sites, and include planting of many Norfolk Island Pine trees along the path. Our primary landing zones are in the parks downwind of the proposed location of these trees, and would become dangerous to use due to rotors if tress are planted where they propose.

Update on the memorial service for Dave Seib at Manilla

Important note:
If you are going to Manilla on Saturday for Dave's memorial service, there is a change in time and venue. It will be held at both Godfrey's East bombout paddock at 11:00 and then later at the Royal.

The main service is to be held at 11:00 in the bombout.

Inland Flying?

1st post for Swifty,

Firstly, thankyou to Splint and Dawson for fixing my account last night at the club meeting, your help was much appreciated.

To introduce myself a little, I am a new member to the club (February) and have just returned to the sport/activity after an absence of 17 years. I have logged 27 hours on the coast since February in my Sting 3 and am enjoying being back in the air.

How to create a post

At tomorrow night's meeting there will be a short demonstration of how to create a post and attach a picture to it.

For those that missed it here is a summary;

May club comp round

It's the club comp round this weekend, but Huey may be in residence.

XC Skies seems to be predicting westerly winds - 12kts at surface level around Glennies, with 26kts at 2000'.

Maybe the forecast will change tomorrow?
