The Melbourne Gliding Club will be holding its Easter Camp from Good Friday, 30th March to Friday 6th April at the Mt Beauty Gliding Club. Mt Beauty is 356 kms from the CBD near Bright - closer for those that live out east.

Registering for the camp is a simple process. Please visit the Melbourne Gliding Club website to register your attendance. Please let us know the dates you will be there, what you plan to do, and how you can help. Volunteers are required to transport aircraft and equipment to and from Mt Beauty. The amount of equipment we take depends on the amount of volunteers we have.

In terms of what we take, this will depend on how many people will be going and require glider seats. We will most likely take, at a minimum:
1 x Tug
1 x two seater
1 x single seater
Expeditions trailer
We will ferry up the tug and one of the two seaters.

Mt Beauty Gliding Club are excellent hosts and the site is a great location for cross country and mountain soaring. Its also a great for a holiday with significant others and family as the location has a lot to offer with fantastic scenery, wineries and plenty of other activities. They usually do one or two dinners for everyone during the camp. More information  can be found on the Mt Beauty GC's website.

Accommodation is available at Mt Beauty and surrounds and airfield camping is also possible, contact the Mt Beauty Gliding Club for more information.  

The MGC camp fee will cover the cost of the tug ferry to and from Mt Beauty. (As a guide, past camp fees have been up to $75). Tows will be at club camp rates (slightly higher than usual tow rates) and charged to members per our usual invoice processes. 

If you have any queries regarding registration or the camp please contact me on 0402 475 485 or mark.ali@optusnet.com.au 

Look forward to seeing you at Mt Beauty.
