Forbes World's Bid Unsuccessful
Vicki Cain on behalf of the Sydney Hang Gliding Club prepared a bid to host the World Championships in Forbes in 2011. The bid process involved attending the annual CIVL meeting and making a presentation to the delegates and CIVL board. The bid needs to be made 2 years in advance.
Vicki Cain Writes;
It is with sad news that I have to tell you that Steve Elliott passed away at 12:32 pm the 5th January, 2009. Steve had an accident launching on the 3rd January on the first day of the Forbes competition.
