This year’s President’s Trophy race is getting really interesting. We aren’t even all the way through May and already 28 members have racked up points and logged a total of over 11,000 miles.Last year at the end of the year we had 30 events on the calendar and 63 members had flown a total of over 31,000 miles.
This year we’ve had eleven events to date (although one was either cancelled or had no shows) and we have a total of 26 events on the calendar.
We already have three members over the 1,000 mile mark. I’m expecting AT LEAST 50 planes for BAC Fest and I suspect some will come from a long distance. Dan Jonas is already threatening to jump back into first with a cross country, literally, flight to BAC Fest.
So get in the game. Make it to a fly-in near you. Or better yet host one.
I’m planning to change the rules in the middle of the game and award points to anyone that sponsors a fly-in. [Don’t worry Jeanne, I’ll make it retroactive.]
