"Spring Tune-Up" in Mission, BC, Canada

The "Spring Tune-Up" is an annual rite of passage for us TD pilots here in the Northwest. This year's event was great fun, filled with great people who happen to be really good at flying model sailplanes. The contest is traditionally held near the town of Mission, in British Columbia, Canada, not too far from Vancouver. It is hosted by the Okalla Hawks. Contest director Ron Turner put on an outstanding event for us this year.

Here are some snaps from the contest:

Here are some shots of our club's juniors, who are already excellent TD soaring pilots: Brendan Beardsley, Connor Laurel and Michael Knight. Connor Laurel, in the middle, took 1st in Competitor class at the Spring Tune Up this year and was fifth overall! (Click the image to see it larger)
