Christmas Camp & New Years Eve Dinner Report

Posted 10 years, 8 months ago    0 comments

Well Jan and Bill have done it again, pulling off a delicious New Years Eve feast. Thanks heaps guys, your hard work was appreciated by all. Somehow the ham keeps getting better and better each year...

There has been some good flying over the past couple of days. Dennis got a little enthusiastic and decided to have a close look at the spud patch. With the 18 meter glider, there was about 1 meter spare between the wingtips and the 8 foot high corn on either side.

Water seemed to be the theme of new years eve, with one unlucky new glider cockpit filling up with ballast water due to some unremoved plugs not mentioned in the manual (from what I heard). Also apparently it's not a good idea to leave both ends of your tent open while it's raining...

The weather didn't play ball today (Friday), and looks pretty shabby tomorrow too, however Sunday is looking like it might be a ripper, so get your bookings in now.

We would love to see more Piako Members out flying, we're out numbered by the Auckland guys at the moment. There are heaps of gliders and instructors available, including the Auckland's Duo Discus, 2 tow planes and the winch, so come out and make the most of it.

And now, some images of the past few days:
