Meetings

Club meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month (except for January) from 7pm onwards at the Harboard Bowling Club, located on Bennett St, Freshwater; access via Stirgess Avenue.

Club Member Communications

Instead of a forum, we have a few club mailing lists. You can only use the mailing lists if you have joined as a website member.
Members in these mailing lists can opt in and then send and receive mails on the mailing list. If you don't want to receive mailing list emails, simply edit your membership, and opt out of a particular mailing list. You will still however be able to be contacted by the committee if the need arises. The following club mailing lists are available: 

The Member Chat mailing list sphgc+MemberChat@groupspaces.com is for general member chat.
The XC Flyers mailing list sphgc+XCFlyers@groupspaces.com is for members interested in cross country flying.
The WS Trike mailing list sphgc+WSTrike@groupspaces.com is for members interested in powered paragliding and hang gliding.
