This year we are going to get with the VRCS guys and expand our horizons a bit. If you have any classic related vents that you would like to see added to the calendar, please PM me.

Robert..

Is the Lancaster event on February 25th still confirmed to take place... weather permitting of course? I want to make sure before I head out there this weekend. Is there a central place to check for updates? I don't see anything posted on the CPA website.

Yes, the event is on. Glad you're planning on making it! Any updates will be posted here. There is a chance that if the weather/wind doesn't look good for Saturday I will postpone it to Sunday. I will decide on Thursday if that is the case.

Hi Guys,

Due to a really poor weather forecast I have decided to postpone the AVTI Winter Classic Pattern event scheduled for Feb. 25th, 2017. We will try again on March 11th, 2017, with March 12th as a back-up day.

Sorry for any inconvenience but with the forecast for this weekend I just feel there would not have been enough fun. Let's hope the weather will cooperate for March 11th and we can start off the 2017 Classic season with a bang!

Thanks!

Updates-7/6/2017


New event added- Bear Mountain Flyers, Saturday September 16th at the fabulous Leon Robison airfield in Arvin, California.
This is a combined AMA/Classic contest. More information to come.

The September 23rd contest at Lancaster, California is now a FLY-IN (much like the Classic Pattern Get-Together.)
Mike and Jean Greear are the CD's.

Update- Arvin date change!!!


The Arvin contest date has been changed from the 16th to the 9th. This is good news, as it creates a two week buffer between the Arvin and Lancaster events.
Now it will be easier to take in both shows!


See you there!

Winding it up


Howdy all,

We have surely enjoyed some great flying this year, and there is more to come. This Saturday, September23rd is the Classic Fly-In at the Tailwinds filed in Lancaster, Ca. This was Mike and Jean Greear's event, but with Mike having had knee surgery, I will be taking over the event. It is not a contest, so if the contests are not your bag, come on out and enjoy a day of low pressure fun. $20 gets you in the door, lunch included. PM me for more info.

Classic pattern returns to magnificent Prado field on Saturday, October 7th. Save the date if you have not already for this southern California favorite. Cal Orr will be your CD. Details will be available soon. Stay tuned!

The season finale will be once again at Tailwinds field on Saturday, November 4th. Tony Frackowiak will be your CD for the (I may be wrong) 5th annual CPA West Coast Regional Championships. A flier with details will be forthcoming.

Gear up!
Robert
