The 2020 Canadian Nationals, which was held on the labour day weekend (Sept 5), was a great success. The weather was perfect and the turnout was impressive.
Our Contest Director Lenora, and Chief Judge Charlie were able to organize the volunteers and keep a smooth running contest that saw 42 flights to be flown in one day and all wrapped up by 4:30 pm.
We had 14 competitors, including an Extra 300 from BC, and several planes and pilots from Manitoba. The Manitoba competitors even brought their own cheering section, It was great to have all of the students from Harv’s Air visit and cheer on all of the Manitoba pilots.
Interesting is that we had 3 competitors in 2 Extra 300L’s, 2 in a Gamebird GB1, a Giles, a Sukhoi, a Laser, a One Design, an Eagle, a Zenith Super Acro, a Pitts, and of course one Decathlon.
In spite of COVID measures, (Masks were available and hand sanitizers were numerous and strategically available)
Thanks again to Lenora for organizing the event, and to all of the volunteers who rallied to the challenge, and the spectators and local that were there to add to the ambiance of the day.
