Welcome to the South West Interclub league for 2018

Calling pilots !

Even though we are not able to host an event ourselves, DGS have been invited into the league for another year. One change to the rules means we can now fly 2x novice pilots in each event , and the normal ,1x intermediate pilot and 1x pundit pilot  . This is a get together for all levels with the emphasis on encouraging and helping pilots who are qualified and wanting to start cross country flying, as well as those who want to fly at other clubs and experience the camaraderie of team retrieves and meeting other club members with social BBQs and a beer or two
