Tountinna Gazette

Tountinna Gazette 2021.....
Thought I’d restart our old contribution and keep people updated on happenings on TT.
Mostly photos and maybe some comments thrown in for good measure.
We started back only in recent weeks, so these are the first photos of 2021.....

Some more....
These are Elan 100 2ch gliders from Cambrian Models. Middle 2 are electric and all fly beautifully.

Looking great!

And lucky you! Still haven't flown anything this year  :'( :'(
Education is important, but flying RC planes and gliders is importanter!

Thanks lads.
Ralph, all GG’s are welcome on TT regardless of how clean or unclean they are....even if they come from Cork!!
Let me know when you’re thinking of coming up and I’m sure we’d be delighted to meet up

What a day!! Glider Guider Gathering, Saturday 12th June 2021. On Tountinna.
23 pilots, a least 50 gliders, + hang gliders,+ paragliders, + hill walkers.
Thanks to everyone who traveled and took part in our annual gathering. It was great to see so many faces we haven’t seen for so long, looking forward to doing it all again next year.
Regards, Gerry Buckley
Some photos…..people first……

Thanks Gerry for the hospitality. Eoin clocked up a lot of flying off of the point. Great spot for smaller gliders!

Again, great everyone seemed to have a great time.
Everyone is more than welcome to join us for our mid-week gliding session. These days, we meet about 2pm and fly until about 8.30 ish. Usually of a Wednesday, but if the forecast isn’t great for Wednesday we move to Thursday.
Anyone interested, please contact me and I’ll let you know what the plan is.
Regards, GB

Great photos. I'd love to have gone but a family holiday got in the way! Friends of mine live in killaloe and i have flown my homebuild foam wing there. I might have passed one of you lads. He was in a silver renault megane i think? Back of it FULL of aviation goodies!😆
Its an amazing place and i hope to fly there again.
