A long time ago (2006) Peter Moskovits organised a Gulyas Party for everyone. It has been 13 years since but Peter decided to put the call out for everyone to participate in another fabulous evening. The “Gulyas Party” was a success and nobody went home hungry. Next Gulyas party in 13 years as per tradition… Pictures…… Original 2006 picture…..
Congratulations to PJ for taking his maiden flight in his Libelle today. PJ purchased his Libelle back in June 2019 and the day finally arrived on Saturday 7th September for it first flight out of Gowran Grange. The flying conditions were very good with a gentle NNW breeze. Soaring conditions over Naas were very good and PJ took advantage of easing conditions in the afternoon. Well done.
We welcomed the TG4 team to the Dublin gliding club today. They were filming for an upcoming programme about aircraft aerodynamics. Fergus Denman flew the presenter Peadar O Goill in our K21 and this flight will feature in the programme. The segment on gliding in DGC will appear on the show “Is Eolai Mé” in September 2020.
