This is to let everyone know that the Club Class Nationals and MSC Contest planned for Matamata is back on and all go.  We don’t expect a large fleet but there are enough keen pilots to make it a good competition.

The competition days are Sat 28 Jan through to Sat 4 Feb 2017. 

 The normal Club days will carry on - the first 3 contest days are on anniversary weekend, then Wednesday and the following Saturday. Club flying will be going on around the contest launch on all of these days.  There will also be the opportunity to fly the other days during the week.  So don’t avoid the airfield because of the contest, we’d be keen for you to be at the airfield every day and fly as much as possible.  You may also be asked to help with the launch and maybe go on a retrieve in the afternoon which can be good fun!

We’re expecting it to be nice low key event given that there are low entries, and we encourage any Club pilots who would like to join the contest to get in touch with Bob Gray (021 949145,or this would be good opportunity to a have a taste of competitive gliding.  We’ll be tasking various classes to suit the pilots and gliders that enter.
