Tenant/Caretaker - Godley Head

The Department of Conservation Christchurch Field Base is seeking a tenant
for the use of a one bedroom cottage on the spectacular Godley Head. The
tenancy is available for a three month term. This may be extended by a
further three months.

The rental for the cottage is valued at $240.00 per week. Ideally this rent
would be offset by a tenant who is also qualified to undertake the
equivalent of up to 14 hours work per week. This could be in the form of
maintenance tasks including toilet cleaning, weed eating, mowing, rubbish
collection, and at times helping the public.

Flying Taylors Mistake

Now that winter is upon us, it seems like a good time to sort through all the GoPro footage from summer.

Here's a small video I put together about Taylors Mistake:

Speed wings Gondola flying

In line with NZHGPA ruling, please politely ask any speedwing pilots flying the gondola if they are PG2 rated. As a club site also check that they are CHGPC members.
The gondola is a very public site, if anything were to happen the Gondola will not be aware that speedfliers may be unqualified, flying uncertified wings etc and we would just lose another site....
I'm certainly loving having it open- Friday flys!!! Woop Woop

Flying at Lower Cass

Please note that flying at Lower Cass is suspended. Do not fly there until further notice.
