This just might be the start of the season!

We can all agree on one thing: there hasn't been nearly enough flying over the last six months.

That's all about to change with today's warm-up.

It looks like Rodger just opened the season with his flight from Moirs to just past Matakana, winning him 26.91 open distance points on

One month in... Auckland in the lead

It's about a month since we went live with XContest in New Zealand and we've had 17 XC flights logged... not bad considering the awful weather that we have been having.

The Club Competition is looking good, with Auckland currently well in the lead thanks to the only double-figures flight, a 31km flat triangle by Wayne Rohrs, from a new site he has pioneered on the Kaimais Range.
