Coaching 2011 and more!

Anon - //

CSC Coaching 2011.
Coaching in the Lakes is primarily for PG CP's to continue to progress in a
safe environment (literally), but it also introduces pilots to new sites
and early XC's. So, whether you are low air time or haven't flown many of
our splendid Fells, you might consider contacting a coach or turning up on
any of the monthly coaching days. At the end of this report is a list of
all the current CSC coaches. They are usually out making the best of the
weather so don't hesitate to give them a call and fly somewhere new. For
the sake of others and land owners, all the Club asks for is that you are a
member of the BHPA or have an alternative 3rd party insurance.
The 'Monthly Coaching Days' normally start at the Castle Rigg stone circle
(NY291236) just east of Keswick. You can either meet there or text the
coach for more info. We will depart at 10:30am having assessed the
conditions compared to the various forecasts. If there's a chance of some
pilots doing an XC, then we may leave their cars at the goal to provide a
little incentive. Don't mix up these introductions to XC with the 4 'milk
runs' for more experienced pilots (see link XC Guiding Days 2010).
At take-off, while recovering from the walk up, we'll brief you on the
area, conditions, expectations etc. Those with 25 hrs air time might want
to get Pilot Rated. To get this you will need a number of tasks witnessed
and signed off by any coach. For a list of these tasks open the attachment
(conditions may delay completing certain tasks like top landing etc). The
main objective of the coaching is to make the best of the day and progress
individually. The Coaching Day dates are planned as follows, but due to the
fickle nature of the weather are likely to change:
9th April (to coincide with 'The Spring Thing' evening dinner);
7th May (a week later than normal to avoid the bank holiday);
11th June (to avoid clashing with the LCC and party on 3nd- 5th June);
2nd July;
6th Aug;
3rd Sept.
If you wish to receive texts confirming these dates or late changes then
text me your name to go into a 'group correspondence'.
Have an excellent 2011,
David Ashcroft - 0775 275 0869.
