Saturday 30th September 2017 10:00AM

Start of Season Briefing


Reserve the date.  As has been done in previous years, this is the information and safety briefing for all Club pilots to attend.  A short packed morning to inform, motivate and remind all you eager Glider pilots about health and safety.  It’s all about having fun in the sky in the safest way.  More detail closer to the date. 


Wednesday 11th October 2017 7:00PM

Official Observers Briefing


Edouard Devenoges has agreed to run an OO session for those wanting to become Offical Observers and any current OOs needing a refresh.  All claims for those highly sought after badges and records that you struggle to achieve must be endorsed by an OO. 

 (To be an official observer you do not need to be a QGP pilot, but you do need to be a member of GNZ. The newly married Mrs Kim Kamp is supporting Will by planning on doing the course. Genny)  

Edouard is the GNZ Awards officer and is the guy that decides whether your claim is good or not, so it’s a good idea to please him.  He has a vested interest in getting all claims in the right order and being a competent OO is key to that.
