Southern Cross Events

So after you booked your trip to Lost Hills for the Fab Feb the next time you bring up Travelocity or Expedia it should be for the Southern Cross events.  This year the  New Zealand events will be first followed by those in Australia. The Australian events will be followed by their Nationals, this year in Perth.  Just be aware that from Narrandera, where the World Cup events are held  to Perth is very long way, much further than crossing all of Europe. This is the best time of the year to go "Down Under" and anyone who has done it always wants to go back.

New Zealand

The Omarama and Kotuku Cups will be held at Omarama from 17 to 24 March. Detailed schedule to be published "real soon now". The contact person is Rob Wallace at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Patterson Flash

from FB

Tiffaney O'dell reports
Blake won Coupe at the Patterson. He got me by 11 seconds in this morning's flyoff. Blake did 4:19, I did 4:08 and Rich did 3:24. Alex beat Blake in the 11-minute flyoff to win Wakefield. Bill Booth took third. Great weather, great contest, thanks Hector and Jim. See you next year.

Mike Mc Keever cleaned up Glider   with ...F1A McKeever, Parker, Zink and F1H McKeever, Van Nest and Parker.....Sierra Cup H fly off McKeever then Parker

and I think that F1C guys don't do FB.

.. and before it is misconstrued, flying naked is a term amongst the hard core FAI sportsmen for flying without a tracker, to save weight and antenna drag
