In all twelve (12) pilots attended the event at the Spectrum Flyers field in Surrey, BC with 6 guests from Vancouver Island and one from the Sunshine Coast making The Spectrum Flyers RV Park a busy place this weekend!

The weather was tough with grey skies making the planes a challenge to see clearly and the wind was nasty on Saturday.
Sunday started with partly sunny skies and gentle breezes. After the flying was done the weather deteriorated.
There was 1 minor incident that put the plane out of commission for the weekend but can be repaired; thank goodness for the backup plane! Darn those marker poles for moving…
Many thanks go out to everyone for the support, coaching and help to make this contest a success. In conclusion, a great weekend and kickoff to the 2016 season. A big thank you to all for the support and contribu_ons to this successful contest. Now to practice practice practice!!
