Stephen form the West Sydney Slope Soarers sent in this note about an event in Austrailia.
I’m the President of the WSSS and just wanted to get the word out about that the WSSS have secured the use of Mt Borah near Tamworth NSW for Manilla Slope Fest 09 September 20th to the 28th. Site information can be found here http://www.flymanilla.com/Home/tabid/139/Default.aspx.
This will be the inaugural event and we plan on making it an annual get together. We already have 1 huge event In January at Camperdown in Victoria but having to wait 12 months for a get together of slope flyers we thought we would do a little research and came up with this site. It’s actually a Parra and Hang glider site where they do there record attempts for cross country and they held the 2007 Parra Gliding World Championships there. It has 4 huge launch sites covered with astro turf making the perfect runway for scalies.
So, there it is, it’s open to all flyers not just Aussie ones could be that perfect slope /family holiday in Australia for some of our international slope brothers and sisters.
For any other information regarding the slope fest our West Sydney Slope soarers home page will carry updates regarding the progress of the event.
