For 23 years the Annual Narromine Cup has been held over the last full week of November.

Sadly, due to Covid we missed the event in 2022, and this last season in 2023, the World Championships were run at Narromine during that period instead.

By popular demand, we were asked to hold our 2023 Cup week later in the season, so the first week of March was set for the gathering.
Narromine Cup is not a regular competition. The gathering serves as a briefing and launch, with a social atmosphere and presentations, to a diverse group of pilots ranging from first cross country student pilots to record holders and world class competitors.

The Cup is awarded to the pilot with the best score from three flights lodged on WeGlide.
This year the field was smaller than usual. The weather was kind with 6 flying days. The pilots choose their own tasks to achieve either maximum WeGlide scores or the FAI badge awards.

Two seaters were popular, with friends flying together and coaches flying with early cross country students.
The competition was fierce between the pilots seeking to win the Cup, and the planning and
task setting excellent for the badge flying pilots.

Narromine Cup Winner 2023 Richard Traill with Beryl Hartley

Richard Traill edged out Mark Hunt to win his second Narromine Cup. Neil Doherty was a challenger to the two Melbourne club members.
The Silver, Gold and Diamond badge achievements were completed to great acclaim.

Once again, we thank Ed Marel for his well studied advice on the weather. It’s a bonus to have the weather man flying on his own forecast.
The 2024 Narromine Cup will be held over the last full week of November 2024. We hope to see you there.
