  • What's going on

Warwick Gliding Club would like to acknowledge the funding allocation of $2,000 by the Queensland Government for the purchase of a defibrillator as a 2020 Election Commitment that the Department of Tourism, Innovation and Sport are assisting to deliver.

 

 

 

 

Warwick Gliding Club was successful with the Southern Downs Regional Council 2021/22 Community Grant - Round Two — CG-2122-R2-001 — Supply and install Stiebel Eltron instant hot water unit. This means we can have hot water generated from our own solar power in the Clubhouse.

Many thanks to the Council for again supporting Warwick Gliding Club in upgrading our facilities and becoming more energy efficient.

Many thanks to Southern Downs Regional Council

 

 

 

From 17 December 2021, or when 80% of Queenslanders aged 16 and over are fully vaccinated (whichever comes first), restrictions on businesses will be further eased, with many businesses and venues able to return to operating at full capacity.

  • There will be no capacity restrictions on businesses where only fully vaccinated people can attend.
  • There will however be restrictions on unvaccinated people. These restrictions target non-essential leisure activities which are not essential for people to meet their basic needs, but present a considerable risk to contributing to an outbreak in our community when our borders re-open.
  • Both fully vaccinated and unvaccinated people will still be able to access essential services and activities. This means unvaccinated people will still be able to go to grocery stores, pharmacies and participate in activities like going to the gym for exercise. Capacity restrictions may still be in place at these types of businesses, which will limit the number of people in attendance.

For example, if a Club has both sporting facilities and restaurant/bar facilities, unvaccinated people can only access the sporting or exercise facilities. This would mean if an unvaccinated person attends a golf club, they can play a round of golf but would not be permitted to enter the clubhouse for a meal.

People will still need to check in using the Check In Qld app, however from 19 November 2021, vaccination certificates can be linked into the app, making it simple and easy to prove vaccination status

Flying in any of the club gliders is not permitted for unvaccinated people.

 

 

WPS is finally back and ready to provide reliable tug services for many years to come.

A new engine has been installed and other maintenance works done on the fuselage.

Many thanks to Mal, our dedicated tug Master who has worked very hard to ensure every detail was completed up to the standard

New versions of the Emergency Response and Safety Plans have been added to the Operations Manuals on the Document Library.
 
Please take the  time to read and understand these procedures documents.
 
Hard copies of these manuals are also available at the club House and Pie Cart.

Dear club members,
We were successful with the QLD government Active Restart Infrastructure Recovery Funding grant application and received a grant of $6700 even though the application was oversubscribed.
The grant was for a new solar system to be installed on the clubhouse.
A new solar system should mean we can meet all our electricity needs.
