Nearly six years ago Mt Beauty GC pinched the NSW CGIT trophy from Canberra GC at Bunyan, to the disgruntlement of the NSW adventurers. The Victorians passed the cup around their state from Mt Beauty to Bendigo, Geelong and Ararat several times having fun with a cheeky “keepings off” attitude!
Paul Mander eventually spoiled the fun and returned the cup to West Wyalong for the Bathurst club. Still keen to encourage a spirit of interclub interaction and rivalry the VSA recently introduced a New Mug for themselves and placed it in a strategic central location at the Bendigo club site at Raywood.

As a keen CGIT proclaimed, I couldn’t resist getting Mt Beauty’s name on it first with a flight to Raywood on the 10 January in my syndicate ASK-21mi.

Local stalwart Paul Dilks kindly looked after me for the night and I had a great flight back the next day chasing the sun ahead of an approaching front.IMG 4847

As I overflew the Benalla Ozglide comps, at 10,000′ they were all tied down with the day cancelled for predicted storms.

There are a few rules associated with claiming it published on the VSA website including its current location so let’s keep it moving. Taking a club two-seater is a great way to introduce newer members to cross country.
