Changes to the Forbes Flatlands Hang Gliding Championships

Forbes Flatlands 2011 hang gliding competition in Australia

Organisers Moyes have made some late changes to the format of the Forbes Flatlands hang gliding championships, which take place in January 2011. Details are below, and entries should be received by this Friday, 10 December 2010.

The sports class event is unchanged, scheduled for 28 – 31 December, but the main Hang Gliding Championships now become two separate FAI cat 2 / HGFA AAA sanctioned competitions, with a rest day in between.

The pratise day has been moved forward by a day to 1 January, and the first Open Class competition runs from 2 – 6 January; the second from 8 – 12 January.

Organisers say this format better caters for pilots who “time-wise, money-wise or fitness-wise can only do one or the other comp”. It also gives pilots who want to do both a rest day in between, and doubles the potential WPRS points.

In summary, the dates and costs of the events are below:

Forbes Flatlands Sports Class Championships 2011, 28 – 31 December 2010
Unlimited entries – Entry Fee $250 + $25 per tow
