The NSW Gliding Association Shield

The NSW Gliding Association Shield

DECENTRALISED CROSS-COUNTRY EVENT
WINNER, LEAGUE II

Description
A timber shield with an aviation centre piece and winner shields

Citation
Awarded to the winner of the Decentralised Cross-Country Event, League II

History
This shield was donated to the Decentralised Cross-Country Event in 2000 by the NSWGA. The donation was inspired by the contribution the annual “Narromine Cup and Performance Camp Week” makes to club pilots by providing them with an opportunity to achieve their personal cross-country goals. The link with the DCE is through the DCE providing the opportunity for further cross country development throughout the whole soaring season. It was decided to donate the trophy as a perpetual for the League II winner. The efforts of Kerry Claffey deserve special mention and thanks.
