Horsham Week Competition
52nd Horsham week - 3 - 10 February 2018
The Horsham Week competition has operating continuously since 1967 and is an opportunity for friendly competition flying in some of the safest country in Australia (nearly every paddock is a one mile square airfield standard surface). The Horsham Club wanted this competition to be one where pilots who were quite inexperienced at competition flying could be welcome, feel that they were amongst friends and mentors, and where the fear of outlandings would not stop people from having fun.
The competition was started by The Wimmera Soaring Club (now Horsham Flying Club) which ran it continously for 38 years. Over these years this competition became so highly valued by the participating pilots that when the Wimmera Soaring Club wanted to retire in 2002, the pilots took it over and have run it successfully since then as a competition of the pilots, for the pilots, by the pilots.
The competition is run at minimum cost and keeps sufficient funds in the bank to cope with two successive wipe outs due to bad weather.
