2010 1-26 Sweepstakes Results


The 2010 1-26 Sweeps are over.

(full Sweepstakes standings and flights)

This year's results showed a (temporary) downward trend of participation and distances compared to previous years. The interest is there from folks who have participated from year to year and enjoy the special 1-26 competition to be found in The Sweeps. Here are the results:

In the Diamond Class, Hangman Levy and Chukar Spielman battled it out in the West with Hangman regaining the title. Jim Hard took the lead in the Central Division beating his total miles from last year with another series of great straight out flights. Ron Schwartz dominated the Eastern Division but was pushed hard by new Diamond level contestant Paul Leal. Way to go guys!

The primary goal of the Sweepstakes is to increase participation in cross country flights and get them logged at ALL levels, but especially the beginners at the Bronze level. This will work best if as many 1-26 pilots as possible make a decision to mentor somebody in the Bronze category and make them fly and record their flights in 2011. We need to promote and share the FUN of flying a 1-26. It's difficult enough to fly cross country in glass. It's amazing in a 1-26!
Safe and fun flying in 2011 !
