CHGC 2017

Friday, October 6th, 2017

First and foremost, may i take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new President for the club (not entirely sure how that happened, i think everyone else took one step back). On behalf of us all, i’d like to pass on our thanks to Giles as outgoing President for all the hard work he has put in on behalf of the club during 2017.

In short, a summary of the AGM.
After some discussion;
Giles Andreata passed the baton to myself to take up the role of President.
Daniel Keech, has stepped up once again to take on the role of Treasurer, thanks Daniel!
Brod Osbourne, has stepped up once again to take on the role of Secretary, again many thanks Brod!

Not sure that i’m any more qualified than Giles to fulfil the role as President but rest assured i’ll do my best!

Next meeting will be 1st of Feb 2018 at Yorkeys Knob Boat Club… be there, or be… ‘flying’, it’s the only excuse accepted! 😉

Looking forward to getting some more hours in the air before the holidays! And, to a great flying year ahead in 2018!

Don’t forget, join us on FaceBook for the latest news and events.

Situation has changed regarding access to this site. There is now a $10 per person, per night camping fee – managed by local landowners.

Contact the club if you intend to fly, so arrangements can be made prior to arrival.

Meanwhile, in Norway….

A big weekend

triking across England

Friday, August 28th, 2015

Superb footage and commentary from this rather slick BBC production from 1985. Makes you realize how far trikes  (and video cameras!) have come! Gentleman aviators indeed!

Part 2

Cooktown weekend

Friday, July 24th, 2015

Video from last Cokktown trip. Opposite extreme this time, very strong conditions and southerly winds. Got a fly in, but it was rough and the air felt unfriendly….


For Adam…
