XCANADA 2014 CONCLUDES!
It was a great year with a record 85 pilots participating, with lots of new pilots joining for the first time and submitting flights. XCanada, besides being a flying contest, is an opportunity to see where XC flights are taking place in Canada and allows pilots the opportunity to learn about new routes. Flights were submitted from all over Canada, including some new sites in the Rocky Mountain Trench and many tow flights from the Canadian Prairies as well as southern Ontario.
Our various winners are:
HG overall: 1st Michael Schulte, 2nd Dale Regehr, 3rd Ken Kinzie
HG kingposted: 1st Serge Lamarche
PG overall: 1st Peter Spear, 2nd Andrew Berkley, 3rd Igor Tolsky
PG EN-C: 1st Peter Spear
PG EN-B: 1st Steven Semisch
Participation winners: Ricardo Marcolino, Eric Paquette, Graem Schmidt, Rod Regier
Congratulations to all participating pilots!
