Deadline for PG Open bids brought forward

The Paragliding Competition Committee has brought forward the deadline for the submission of bids to hold a round of the PG Open in 2015/16 Season.

The deadline is now 31st May 2015 - so the end of this month.

This is to enable those who have already made bids to get earlier closure on the matter, and to be able to concentrate on organising fantastic PG Open rounds for all us paraglider pilots.

Anyone who wants to make a bid, or has questions/concerns should contact the PCC on

Canungra Cup to be NZHGPA overseas league

The PCC hereby announces that the 2015 Canungra Cup (held in Queensland, Australia) will serve as an overseas league event for New Zealand. 

This means, assuming that the minimum criteria of 6 NZ pilots is met, that flying in this competition will contribute towards your NZ ladder score. 

Mark Hardman from Paraventures has been kind enough to lead the Kiwi charge, and can be contacted on 

Dates for the comp are not yet official but it is likely to be the last week of October 2015.
