2017 Chelan Cross Country All-Summer Classic
June 24, 2017 - August 26, 2017Free
The Classic took a year off in 2016, but now it’s bigger, easier, longer and cheaper than ever in 2017! Sounds like a dream? But it’s true! Read on.
For 2017 we’ve decided to extend the flying days and not limit the pilots to one week but to expand it out to the entire summer, so the meet will run from June 24 all the way until August 26. You will still need to produce 4 decent flights to be in the running for awards.
We will have a Kickoff weekend, June 24 and 25. You will be able to register, download waypoints, fly your brains out, and have a burger and a brew with your buddies. Then we will have a Wrap Up and Awards day on August 26. Fly your brains out then have a burger and a brew with your buddies then too.
This year, you will be asked to submit your tracklogs via E-mail to the Score Keeper, Aaron Rinn. He will evaluate your flight, score it and post it.
In lieu of an entry fee, a donation to the Chelan Site Fund is requested but not required. Your donation to the site fund will keep Chelan open and available for you to fly this year and for many years to come. Think of your donation when you are using the launch area out houses, stocked with toilet paper. Think of your donation when you are on final approach for an easy late evening landing into the Chelan Falls Soccer fields, or the Junkyard because your contribution helped pay for site insurance to keep those LZs open and available.
