With Covid lockdowns and Hotspots in 3 states the Kingaroy SC have determined that they cannot hold a National championships which can be attended by pilots from all states. As a consequence, the National Competitions Committee has asked Benalla to host both national events concurrently.
GCV has agreed to host both events from the 12th - 19th December 2021.
The nationals will comprise 5 classes, Club / Std / 15m / 18m and Open.
We are hopeful that summer weather and increased vaccinations will enable the championships to take place, and confirm that a full refund of fees paid will be made if the event has to be cancelled before the 13th November. Refunds after that date will depend on any expenses incurred.
Narromine was the venue for the 2015 Junior World Championship, which was very successful, flying on 10 out of a possible 11 contest days. It was the venue where Australian glider pilot Matthew Scutter became World Champion in Standard Class. Narromine Gliding Club is honoured to be selected by the IGC and we look forward to hosting an amazing gliding competition.
