Waipukurau has an excellent reputation for settled weather in January with thermals and convergence predominating. It is an ideal early level competition with plentiful safe land out options.

The CHB Aero Club provides camping/caravan facilities at the airfield with good clubhouse facilities at reasonable cost.
The Registration Fee for the contest was $200-00 or $70-00 per day (note: the ad in SoaringNZ was incorrect.)
Payments can be made electronically to Gliding HB & Waipukurau at HBS Bank, account no: 03 1355 0690287 00 with your name and CD Champs as particulars & reference. Cheques can be posted to the club at:

Come and enjoy a friendly, low key contest in the heart of Hawkes Bay with booming thermals and plenty of safe landing areas. We look forward to seeing you there.
