Flatter Than The Flatlands
The Birchip FTTF will kick-off with the first pilot briefing on Good Friday Morning from 9am at the Birchip Cropping Group (BCG) Boardroom. 73 Cumming Ave, Birchip VIC 3483. It's in the main street of town ~50m North from the Mallee Bull Statue.
As previous competitors will know, it's very relaxed competition. The focus is on fun and we encourage pilots new & old come out and enjoy the mellow & sometimes challenging Autumn flying conditions.
Each day starts with a morning briefing at the BCG around 10am. Then a task briefing in the tow paddock 30km out of town between 12 & 1pm. Task distance is usually in the 40-80km range downwind with no turnpoints.
Lodging choices include Birchip caravan park motel, Birchip pub, camping at lake Tchum(8km out of town), Culgoa pub (44km out of town).
