Murray Bridge Gliding Club celebrated its 65th birthday this year by holding its dinner at the Great Eastern Hotel at Littlehampton where the founders had their first meeting in 1958.

Originally named Great Eastern Gliding Club, the name was changed to Murray Bridge Gliding Club in 1970 when the club moved to Pallamana becoming the first tenant on what is now a busy light aircraft aerodrome.

40th Anniversary Celebration
For 40 years at Monarto South, 15km away, gliding people from all over South Australia have been progressively developing a resource base with a library, museum, workshop and storage for two dozen airframes made available by a wide range of individuals and syndicates.
A wider program is seeking to establish a permanent state based airworthiness training workshop under SA RMO. The resources at Monarto South are helping the initiative with provision of wood, metal and FRP airframes.

This is seen as one of the elements in helping at the coal-face of gliding, by injecting skills and motivation into airframe care at the same level as flight training and cross country / contest coaching and helping the gliding movement to grow and prosper.
