I see the dates in Melbourne are not yet finalised We have another event in Perth in December, was the 3-12-2011 but postponed due to lack of suitable wind till the next available date of the 19th
There was also some international competitors came from a PKRA event in New Caledonia which I think was also held early in December.
Would be good if all the organisers checked up on what else is on to make the most of a potential international presence flying down here that time of year
