The magic number this year was 1.
There was a lot of activity this year including the first sweepstakes winners from the Eastern Division in
several years. Kevin Ford was uncontested in the new Gold Category, and Jayne Reid was also uncontested in the
Silver Category. Kevin managed to submit flights from all three divisions this year and finished in the top 3
in both the East and Central Divisions.
Charles Shaw dominated the Central Division Gold Category with 2 diamond distance flights and 3 more over 239
miles long. Jim Hard was second and Kevin Ford was third.
The Western Division was the only one with entries in all three categories. Doug Levy flew another Diamond
Distance flight, the longest of this year’s Sweepstakes at 329.65 miles, to win the Gold Category. George Powell
was second with Garry Dickson just a few miles behind in third place. The Silver Category was won by Pete
Donath. The Bronze Category was won by Bill Tisdale.
Congratulations to everyone who submitted flights in the Sweepstakes this year. For 1999, the goal is to get
participation in all categories of all the divisions. Fly safely, and have fun.
