A busy summer

Not much to see on this blog, but the last few weeks have been busy at Waikerie.

In November the 2010 SA State Comps were held. The weather was great, a good time was had by all.

Then Joeyglide, the Australian Juniors championship, came to Waikerie. They had more flying days in the week than ever before. Come again, fellas.

After Christmas came coaching week, with pilots with a wide range of skill levels coming to learn and practice. Several of our Japanese club members flew with us during this week and the next one.

State comp pilotsThen came the 2011 SA State Comp. The weather wasn’t too cooperative, with maximum heights around 4000 feet: however the pilots still went out and flew the tasks. They were rewarded on Friday 7 January with a hot, high day. There were reports of 11 and 12,000 feet on task, with speeds to match. John Buchanan attempted a 300 km speed record: don’t know the result of that yet.

Summer isn’t over, the club now returns to its usual flying on weekends.
