Instructor seminar in Vågå

This weekend it was instructors seminar in Vågå, and as responsible for rules and regulation in the hang glider and paraglider organisation I participated as “lecturer”. In Norway instructors have to renew their instructors licence every 4 year by participating at a two day seminar. As the seminar is for experienced instructors the main point is sharing experiences and discusing various topics. So the role of the course leaders is mainly to act as facilitators. We hold these courses twice a year, and I learn a lot every time, and hopefully the same is true for the instructors participating. As always the seminar was nice with lots of fellow instructors sharing knowledge and experiences, and a party Saturday evening.

I also tested the new camera (Pentax K200D) this weekend hoping to capture the colours of the autumn. Results below.

Winter has arrived in the mountains.

Lots of wind in Vågå this weekend.

Saturday during the instructors seminar Arne Hillestad, head of the hang glider and paraglider organisation here in Norway, got the sad message about the fatal accident of a Norwegian paraglider pilot in St. Andre, France. My thoughts to his family and friends.
