Come flying at the World's best foot launching sites 21st October – 28th October 2006

The dates for this year have been moved back to coincide with Indy weekend (which starts on the Thursday before the first weekend of the Classic). We expect the flying to be more challenging later in Oct giving more unstable days. Take extra time off work, fly the Canungra Classic and see the fast cars at Indy races.

This year promises to be even better with the headquarters to be based at Canungra's picturesue show grounds, creating an open friendly environment with BBQ, campfires and a layback Australian style. Some catering will be provided for breakfast and dinners. The Gold Coast comes alive for Indy, great nighttime activities for those of you who want to party. This is the first competition of the season for OZ and is a must for the young at heart. Drew Cooper four time Australian Champion will be running the event, so this is one not to be missed.
