Casual Flyers Casual free flyers are welcome providing they register as a wind tech. This ensure you are provided with information similar the competition pilots (site briefing, turn direction etc etc) and we have an opportunity to provide a site induction, check the currency of your pilots licence and we can provide information and assistance to the wind tech. The benefits are mutual and this also allows the Organiser, the Comp Director and the Launch Marshall the opportunity to ensure a fair, safe and competitive competition without the risk of breaching the sanction and respects the commitment of competitors. Please note that there are limitations to your flying as a windtech. If you wish to fly without these limitations, please purchase a competition entry (which will then allow to fly the competition properly).

Notes Do not land in fields with crops ever! Do not land in fields with live stock wherever possible. There is ample landing area that has no crops or stock, do not upset the landholders. Check and double check landing areas. Single strand electrical wires abound in this area and are invisible from the air. They may span for extreme distances across paddocks with very few poles. Any buildings, dams and especially pump houses should be treated with extreme suspicion. All households in this area use UHF CB for communications when out and about on the farm and in town. Your radio chatter WILL be heard (all channels are utilised somewhere) and the whole competition judged accordingly. Please be polite and courteous at all times. Keep transmissions short sharp and to the point with no unnecessary chatter. To legally use the Ham frequencies, you MUST use a callsign for every transmission (which means you MUST have a valid callsign). Leave all gates as you found them, if the gate was open then do not close it. Leave all areas as you found them. Take litter with you (even other peoples). Treat this country area and its people well and you will no doubt be treated the same.
