The Melbourne Gliding Club will be holding its annual Cup Weekend Camp from Saturday 3 November to Sunday 11 November 2018 at Raywood, home of the Bendigo Gliding Club. Raywood is about 185km north of Melbourne via the Calder Fwy, and about 30km north of Bendigo. As Raywood is quite close, even if you can only come up for a couple of days it is well worth it (the weather is better north of the divide).
Registering for the camp is a simple process. Register that you will attend, let us know the dates you will be there, what you plan to do, and how you can help.
In terms of what we take, this will depend on how many people will be going and require glider seats. We will take, at a minimum:
We will ferry up the tug and one of the two seaters.
- 1 x Tug
- 1 x two seater
- 1 x single seater
- Expeditions trailer
Bendigo Gliding Club are excellent hosts and the site is a great location for cross country gliding. The club provides lunch everyday and dinner on most nights. They also have their own tug (Eurofox) and the following scheduled fees apply:
There will be a camp fee from MGC to cover the ferry and movement fee costs.
- Eurofox (Bendigo Tug) tow $5.00pm
- Movement fee for visiting gliders $10 per day flown
- Camping fee $10 per night per person
Organising camps requires help from members in to transport the gliders, expeditions trailer etc. to and from the camp.
If you have any queries regarding registration or the camp please contact me on 0402 475 485 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Look forward to seeing you at Raywood.
