The Manilla memorial service for Dave Seib

Tom rang me and said that the Manilla memorial for our mate Dave will be held on Saturday afternoon at the Royal Hotel (I think, I'll double check with him later today) on Saturday the 9th of June.

Edit - Confirmed it's at the Royal at approx 14:30.

This is the long weekend, so it gives you a chance for a fly while you're up there.

Billo

Donsta's at it again

Donny had a nice little fly on friday. Again only iPhones to film with. Still not a bad effort seeing he's doing the filming without a tether on the phone :-)
Any way, what do you do when you can't fly because your broken, drive for your mates so they'll owe you heaps when youre back in the air !!!

Draft Bathers Way public domain plan

Last Wednesday, Splint and I attended a community workshop hosted by council for them to get community feedback on their plans for upgrades to the Bathers Way.

The Bathers way is the walking/running/cycling path that stretches from Merewether through to Newcastle along the coast, and so any changes to the route could have an impact on our flying activities.

Magic afternoon......for some :-)

Sundee was a magic day on the coast for footblending and moon watching, and whatever else you had your mind set on I suppose. Don decided to test the footblender, having recently discovered and expelled some gremlins, to see if it now had power to spare.
Young Sally, one of our newly qualified and local pilots (Congrats Sal!!!), and myself were backup crew. We decided that this was definately a good use of our time and filmed bits and pieces to share with all.
So here's the link. (just had iphones for use as cameras sorry).

NHGC and hang glide promo ABC news

Dalby comp covered by ABC news. As our locals have taken out first and second it has good local interest.

http://www.abc.net.au/local/stories/2012/05/01/3492822.htm?site=newcastle

The photo is one I took of Gavin Myers as we left the start circle 5k out of Dalby. The caption should be let the race begin.

SF4. The wash-up

When they'd shot the final scene of the film Ben Hur, Charlton Heston was quoted as saying," Well shoot...No-one's gunna top that in my life time...pting"*.
How right he was.
And how lucky he was - he passed away long before Stingfest Four hit the sky. Had he not, his devastation would have been three dimensional, pointy, and difficult to pass. So massive was the day that even the sun got stage fright till the last minute.

Stingfest Four was big.

Stingfest 2012 video

I have put together a short video of footage and stills from Stingfest 2012. It's HD and seems to be taking a while to load so be patient.

Thanks again to Pete, Christine, Alby, Jan, Billo and Airborne for a great day and evening. And to everyone else, sorry about the snoring!

Splint.

Stingfest Four is GO!

The weather looks great.
Stingfest is ON.

Aim to be there for a "briefing" around 11am. We'll go over a few things that are good to know.
Please remember to sign a waiver when you arrive if you haven't done so before.
Don't forget your barbie food and other good things (like cash for your tows).

Remember... the KING is among us. He/she just doesn't know it yet.

See you there

Coming to Stingfest Four? Read on...

Looks like the weather will be OK so lets roll it for this weekend (28th/29th). Unless something drastic changes, its go go go. Check here Friday night just in case.


The rough plan is for heaps of flying Saturday, dinner, decapitation and coronation Saturday evening, followed by heaps of flying Sunday. Its only a rough plan but I think it has legs.
