  • 06.02.2019 Southern Club well ahead...

    With the 2018/19 Season well underway it's clear that the Southern Club is still the best when it comes to scoring the big distance flights on the Club Competition.

    Southern Pilots, Louis Tapper, Glen Stevens, Aaron Ford, Bryan Moore and David Watson are really cleaning it.

    The Canterbury Club is second, with slightly over half as many points, with Fraser Monteith doing the big ones.

    Auckland, in 7th place, is humiliated.

  • 03.05.2018 Neil Howe wins the MacPara spot prize

    MacPara NZ sponsor a spot prize for a randomly selected pilot from our XC Championship. For last season the winner was Neil Howe. Neil already had an XC Magazine subscription so Nick, from MacPara, has sent him a copy of "Mastering Paragliding".

    Neil said: "Looks like a lot of interesting tips to read over the winter This was my first entry to the XC contest and my only attempt at a PG XC for the 17/18 year as my foot injury pretty much wiped out the year for flying. So to win a prize was for it was real cool."

    Nick also sponsors the annual spot prize which, since the season has now ended, is in the process of being awarded (update to follow).

    The 2017/18 season officially ended yesterday but we allow a bit more time for some last straggler flights to come in before we announce Nick Neynens as the winner.
