After a recon/contact trip to Cunderdin a few weeks ago, the committee is going to proceed with a mini competition there at the end of April. Details are below:
Known, Free and Unknown for all categories other than Entry/Graduate.
For those who are interested, we will trial a Super Sportsman challenge flight as an additional sequence to the Sportsman category. It’s an almost-intermediate level sequence with no snap rolls, which should be a bit more challenging that the normal sportsman flying!
Saturday morning may be training and practice, with the comp kicking off after lunch – if you’re going to compete please be there by midday at the latest!
Sunday morning the competition will continue, and we’ll fly home Sunday afternoon.
Soarability (see a section below) have very kindly offered to put people up in their on-field dongers for a nominal cost. It’s $35 for a non-ensuite room, and $55 for an ensuite. Other options potentially available are the agricultural college (also on site) and the pub in town.
Dunn Aviation has a gigantic hangar there that could fit well over a dozen aircraft, and they’re willing to lease it out for the night for a carton of beer. We’d just have to give it a bit of a clean out, it doesn’t get used much so attracts birds and spiders and such.
Soarability have also offered their hangar for any maintenance issues that arise.
The gliding club will have fuel for purchase, we just need to let them know in advance roughly how much we’ll need.
The box is very easily defined, with the 2 cross runways forming the western and southern edges of it. We will for the first time have portable box markers, including T-s and a centre box marker there.
The gliding club has very kindly offered to let us use their facilities over the weekend. They have a big clubroom (complete with drinks fridge and kitchen), and a briefing room with a TV. There are 2 blocks of toilets on the field, one has showers available.
