South Island Region Gliding Championships 2013

November 16, 2013 - November 23, 2013


The soaring season has arrived, along with your opportunity to compete, or enter to advance your cross country skills, in a fun filled week dedicated to soaring. Once again the Canterbury Club will be your host and the organisers are aiming to keep costs down.

Entry Fee $244. Late Entry Fee $30 (after Nov 9th). Day Entry Fee $50/day. Launches ~ $80 (to be confirmed)

We plan to do the same as last year and take no money at the start but settle up at the end then we can recalculate the tow costs during the week so no losses.

We want to encourage Clubs to bring their two-seater training gliders. NZ club pilots who have not previously flown in contests before, are therefore urged to find an instructor or a cross country rated pilot, get a group together and enter for the week or just a day. The entry fee will be waived for club two seaters (having a handicap less than 90). The intent is to get the clubs back into Regionals mode and have as many Grob Twin Astirs (and the like) entering the contest – likewise we want to encourage youth participation.

The emphasis is on safety and fun – pre registration forms may be scanned and emailed in pdf to contest director Geoff Soper: sopergeoff@clear.net.nz
