2011 1-26 Sweepstakes Results

The 2011 1-26 Sweeps are over.

(full Sweepstakes standings and flights)

It was a very good Sweepstakes year! For the first time since 2008 we had full participation in all divisions and all classes. Garry Dickson had an outstanding Claybourn Trophy flight and Yours Truly got to log a modest (ok, dismal, but at least there was one!) Sweeps flight! Special thanks to the mentors that helped Bronze participants fly and log some of their first cross-country flights. Here are the full results:

In the Diamond Class, Hangman Levy, Garry Dickson, and Chukar Spielman led the pack in the West with Hangman continuing to hold the title. In the Central Division Charles Shaw triumphed over Jim Hard with a great set of flights. Ron Schwartz dominated the Eastern Division but Paul Leal entered a couple of flights and we saw a new entrant, Catherine Williams, log some flights. Of special note, Bob Hurni flew and logged Sweeps flights in all three Divisions. I can't wait til I retire and can travel to fly like that!

#1 Doug Levy 1,789.58 Miles

Jason Arnold won the Eastern Division with his single flight and Gus Johnson logged a flight for second place.

I was exceedingly pleased with the Bronze Class participation this year! We obviously had some mentors helping new folks fly, log and enjoy cross country flights in their 1-26's. Great job to all! Hope to see all of you log Sweeps flights in 2012.


Bronze West
#1 Steve Whiting 117.60 Miles
#2 Robert Branch 47.09 Miles


Bronze Central
#1 Stan Blanton 228.02 Miles


Bronze East
#1 Robert Herren 140.42 Miles
#2 Daniel Sazhin 49.78 Miles
#3 Glenn Fisher 40.01 Miles

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. 2011 was a very successful year meeting this goal.


Safe and fun flying in 2012 !
