Organisers say Golden is an ideal base, with consistent weather, great local amenities and an “awesome reputation for XC flying and racing”.
The entry fees are:
Hang gliders: $145 before 25 June, or $175 after.
Paragliders: $160 before 15 June, $200 after.
Some of the entry fee goes to the Golden Search & Rescue foundation.
All pilots must be HPAC (Hang gliding & Paragliding Association of Canada) members, but you can get temporary membership at the event, if you are not already a member.
There are cash prizes for the top three pilots in the Topless and Kingpost categories, and for the first Rigid, and for the top three open and female paraglider pilots.
