About the Event
George Rogers made huge contributions to New Zealand gliding at all levels. He was one of only 11 pilots to be honoured by Gliding NZ with Life Membership. In his recent years George dedicated much of his time to helping young pilots of the Wellington Gliding Club gain their qualifications in both flying and engineering, a task he performed with dedication and passion. George sadly passed away shortly prior to labour weekend 2018. In honour of his memory, our annual Greytown Youth Glide Mini Camp is now known as The George Rogers Memorial – Greytown Mini Camp.
