Gliding club is one step closer

MARYBOROUGH is just one step away from having its own gliding club.

Since the campaign to establish a club was launched five months ago, keen gliders have been ticking all the required legal boxes to get one up and running.

A recent successful Try Gliding event indicated there was significant interest the hobby.

The steering committee has made inquiries into obtaining a two-seat glider and a local aircraft that can be fitted with a tow hook and regularly made available.

Anyone interested in gliding, towing gliders or just speaking with seasoned pilots is welcome to attend a barbecue on December 3 at the Maryborough Aero Club from 4.30pm to 7pm.

The final step will be a meeting to be held on December 7 at the Maryborough Aero Club

A committee with executive and seven members will need to be elected. For more information, phone the proposed club secretary Janet Neisler on 4124 3089.
