2012 Easter Meet at Panorama

Sunny and hot.
The weather was just awesome and sunscreen was needed every day.

Thanks again for everyone who came out and was there to make this such a fun weekend with flying, skiing, hanging out in the sun, "Tray" racing and boat racing.

Penny Powers took home the trophy this year and she is the first female on the trophy. Well done Penny.
The kids were not so happy with me as I did not land in the target with them tandem on our first flights.

Thanks also to everyone who dressed up, and came with their costumes. Karen had the best costume and I forgot the name of the character who she was....again, see in the pictures below who she was.

If anyone has some pictures they would like to share, please send them to me or contact me to give you access to this album.

Easter Paragliding meet is coming up this weekend.
Panorama is having a "Spring Carnival" and asked us to get creative with our outfits. We are planning to get a banner or flag going as well. I hear some people will have some fun costumes and I can't wait to see.
Depending on weather and wind, we will have some landings in the "tube park" just in front of the day lodge. So it will be great for spectators staying at the lodge as well.
Most of the landings and competition will be at the "Driving Range" (follow the Outrider run). We will have a target for the "Easter Eggs" (will be dropped at least 100 feet above ground) and target landing spot set up there as well.
We start Friday morning but most of the pilots will arrive during the day. Saturday and Sunday we meet at the day lodge at 9:00 am

Here are some pictures from last year.
