Hi Ross,
I Remember it well it was late 1962 as my brother and I were there crewing for Bill Selge who was flying a BG12, as 19 year olds and just as well he had some young bucks to help as the glider was "B"heavy and he landed out a lot. Even so we had a great time and will remember it for ever.

I had my first flight in a Kookaburra. met George Detto, Peter Simpson Col Vassarotti and "Jet "Jackson who were flying the SC Grunau Baby  against Ka6's etc.
Because of those comps I was hooked on the sporting side of gliding until this day.

Hello everyone
Don’t forget Narromine Cup week is coming up in the last week of November. Come up and fly with all your friends, try for a personal best, be it Silver C, Gold C, 500K, 750k or maybe that elusive 1000k you are after.  We are always looking for willing helpers to take some of the load off Beryl, Arnie, Chris, Kenny Mc and David. So don’t be bashful about offering to help.
If you are thinking about attending please let Beryl know at 

The 50th MultiClass Nationals are coming to Narromine in January 2012. Work has already commenced in earnest and the Contest Director is our own Chris Stephens who does such an outstanding job running Narromine Cup week.  Chris is also looking for willing helpers.  This is quite an historic event for Narromine Gliding Club as the very first Nationals were held at Narromine 50 years ago and we would all like it to be a great event.  The competition website is well established and can be accessed from the “MultiClass Nationals” button on any page of the NGC website or you can go there directly via the following link:

If you intend to enter but have not yet done so, please go the site and click on the “ENTRY FORM” button, download the entry form and send the completed form back to Beryl with your entry fee. Banking details are on the form.

Easter Gliding

Hi All,
Consider this, use Easter this year to go gliding with us at the Narromine Gliding Club
This is an invitation to consider doing some serious and recreational gliding in this extended Easter Breaks (five day with Anzac day I do believe).
Take up this chance to have a few days of gliding with a lot of camaraderie in the Narromine tradition of soaring.
There are no scheduled events on the airfield and NatFly, which for many years gliding activity deferred too, is not being held at Narromine this year. So a wonderful opportunity exists to do unencumbered gliding, reclaiming the airfield and delight yourself with the flyable autumn skies for up to five days if your crib in Anzac Day.
So make your plans, book a glider or bring your own, come fly the skies while the locals keep the beer cold and the BBQ hot.
Nothing official has been organised, so organise yourself to glide and make use of this Easter Break.
See you here and be sure to let us know of your intentions.

Secretary, Narromine Gliding Club

After a week of very hot and blue weather we finally have some fabulous cumulus days. The terrible cyclones in the north are pushing some moisture into our area and although still close to 40 degrees each day we have plenty of Cu as the system moves from Western Qld through far Western NSW and into Victoria. The last two days were a bit too much with some overdevelopment later in the day although we did have some good cross country flights. Today was Cu at 11.00am and still going strong at 7.00pm. Cloud base between 8,000’ and 9,000ft. Welcome to the Japanese group of 6 pilots for the next weeks. A busy time for Tuggies Ben and Arnie and Instructor Goe Teramoto.

There must be no gliding championships in Australia for the next week as the summer has finally arrived.
Wonderful cu with cloud bases to 10,000ft. It is expected to be in the 40’s by Wednesday (Australia Day).
So if you are looking to fly for a week of good soaring be ready this weekend anywhere in NSW.
Front up to your club or favourite summer camp site and enjoy the week.

Narromine Perfect Today and better Tomorow

As promised summer has finally arrived at Narromine. 8kts to 9000ft beautiful. Had a vist from Robert (Temora Club) who found conditions so good that he he planned to go to Bennalla yesterday but thought better and outlanded 10klms away. Arnie airtowed him out and he arrived at Corowa after dodging some storms around Temora.

Great day with all flyers enjoying great conditions so get out to your club and enjoy the taste of summer. Then enjoy a few beers at the end of the day.
