Default Region 9 xc 2008

Pete asked me to pass this along.

Request for Region Nine XC Flights Flown in 2008


In order to compile a list of the Regionís XC flights in 2008 I would like those of you who made an XC flight within the Region to please send me the basic information about your longest flight of the year. To submit flights you need not be a resident of Region Nine. All that is required is that your flight originated within the Region. As I want this list to be as inclusive as possible, I am particularly curious to hear from pilots at the edges of the Region: western Ohio, southern Virginia and the eastern parts of PA.

Some pilots flew in the ECC and had good flights there from Ridgely. Those flights will count for our purposes, so please send me the straight-line distance flown from launch to landing, excluding turn points.

On the basis of the submissions I will write an article for the magazine, and have award certificates made up for the three longest flights in the following categories: Fifty Mile Class; Open Class and Rigid Wings.

For now the only information I need are the basics: Date, Site, Glider, Distance (measured straight-line). Once I have a comprehensive list I will go back to the pilots for more information to be included in the article.

For those wondering about last yearís flying, I can say that to my knowledge the longest flight, and only hundred miler, was made from Tobacco Row by John Harper, 135 miles.

You can reply via my email, lplehmann@msn.com
