VGC National Rally at The Park

A warm welcome awaits you! The Park is a grass strip, home to the Bath, Wilts & North Dorset Gliding Club, situated 7 miles southwest of Warminster. The nearest village is Kingston  on the B3095, running between Longbridge Deverill and Mere. There is a wealth about the Club including full details of the location which can be found on the Club website www.bwnd.co.uk

Registration: Please identify the aircraft that you are planning to bring to the rally. Type, Tri-graph or G-reg, and its winch launch weak link requirement. There is no registration fee for the glider itself, but it will be necessary to identify each pilot who will be flying visiting rally aircraft as P1, together with details of pilot experience.. There is a registration fee of £40 for each pilot, which includes daily membership for the rally.

Registration Form is here          Pilot Registration Form

For those that just want to come for a couple of days, then we can do a daily membership as normal.

Camping: Camping facilities are available in marked pitches at the rate of £5 per pitch, per night and £1 per adult in residence per night. Children 15 or under are free. Electrical power at the site is ”off grid”, so power hook-ups are not available for campervans.

Catering: Those who visited the “Park & Glide” rally at The Park in 2021 will remember the legendary catering service provided. The legend continues!   A detailed menu will be available shortly.

Launch fees: 2021 Rates are £9.64 per winch launch £33.60 per 2000ft aerotow. Rates for 2022 are under review and updated details will be available on the Club website in due course.
