2017 Chelan Cross Country All-Summer Classic June Update

It’s now mid June, LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!!

You know what?…$60 is still too much for meet registration… As your fiscally irresponsible Meet Director, I’ve decided to make the entry fee, $0.00. That’s right, if you want to fly and compete and it will cost you absolutely nothing. In truth, in order to avoid USHPA event insurance costs we couldn’t charge participants for the contest. So that’s what we are doing – no charge!

Separately (and with emphasis on it being separate), if you enjoy flying Chelan Butte and want to fly it this year and for many years to come, I passionately encourage you to make a donation to the CBCC Chelan Butte site fund. Look for a way to do this on the CBCC website via Paypal. Or simply send in a check to CBCC via snail mail at the Club’s post office box. Please mark on your check, “Chelan Butte Fund”. CBCC, PO Box 1825, Morton, WA  98356.
