Event Information

1 Oct - TRCC Cross Country Event

From Rick Chitty -

                Here is a short update of the results of the event. We had 15 brave souls start out right on time at 9:00 with a three minute stagger between vehicles. Several vehicles had more than one plane flying from them. Each crew had to make 6 landings in unfamiliar landing areas and over the course of the event drew 5 playing cards. The $5 entry fees were split in two pots and Jacob Campbell was the winner of the poker hand pot with 4 kings.

                There were lots of interesting stories and tall tales . Out of the 15 crews that started the event there were 8 finishers. That might sound like a lot of attrition but considering most of the pilots had never done this before I was impressed that there were that many that finished. It was not easy! The task was to complete the event in the time closest to a time that Dave and I established earlier without going under. Five of the teams that finished were under the time so were out of the running. Finishing in second place and winning a gallon of fuel were the team of Jerry and Erica Dellinger.

First place team winning the other pot was Kevin and Mel Raba and John Midoc. 

                Like all events it wouldn’t have happened without lots of help. I want to thank Dave Gooderham, Terry hummingbird, Greg Harrell, and many others for volunteering as drivers ,crews, and of course pilots. I would also like to thank all of the club for your support and understanding in shutting down the field for several hours to complete the event.
