Registration

Registration for the Vintage Glider Rally 2019, hosted by Norfolk Gliding Club, takes place by purchasing the relevant pilot, glider or modeller tickets in our shop.

Please make sure that you have your Vintage Glider Club membership number handy as this will be required during the checkout process.

On arrival at Tibenham, please proceed to the registration desk in the clubhouse before pitching tents or caravans. Once the necessary paperwork is completed, you will receive a welcome pack containing information about the rally, and a photo ID card. It is very important that you keep your ID with you at all times, as all P1 pilots will be required to show it when launching. If you have not provided a reasonable photo for the ID prior to arrival then registration will be delayed or even deferred so that we can process your ID Card.

Launch Vouchers

During the rally we will be using a voucher system for providing glider launches. Vouchers can be purchased from the office for either a winch launch or 2000 foot aerotow, and can be used be any registered pilot in any registered glider. Please ensure to complete all the details on the voucher before your flight, and hand the voucher to the launch marshal on request. He will then return the landing certificate portion to you for the flight, and you should hand this to the retrieve driver on landing.

Launches will be charged at current Norfolk Gliding Club rates

Payments

Payments for merchandise and launch vouchers can be paid in cash in pounds Sterling. We can also accept card payments from recognised credit or debit cards (Visa or Mastercard).

Catering

Our resident caterers, Eddie and Rachael Applegate and their team, will be providing food and drink throughout the event. Our licensed bar will be available throughout the day serving alcoholic and soft drinks (don’t worry the beer fridge will be well stocked!), and the kitchen will be serving food as follows:

Breakfast (Full English and Continental) 8:00 – 10:30
Lunch (Sandwiches and other cold snacks) 10:30 – 18:00
Dinner (must be booked before 17:30 on that day) 18:00 – 21:00

Camping

If you have purchased a camping spot, a pitch ID tag will be provided, and this should be fixed to a tent guide rope, or placed in your caravan/motorhome/campervan window.
