What a fantastic week in Pemberton! A big thanks to Guy and Ricardo and the many volunteers who worked so hard to make this happen!

We had 4 tasks, the 3 other days were canceled because of too much wind. Two of the tasks were over 80 km with lots of valley crossings, including some flying north of the Hurley Pass. 86 pilots came to Pemberton, many of them for the first time. Lots of happy pilots in goal each day, thanks to the good work by the task committee. Although conditions were typical for Pemberton (rather rough at times), there were only two reserve tosses, no damage to pilots or gear and both pilots got themselves back to civilization (one with the help of comp volunteers).

For more information on each day check out Nicole's blog: http://www.nicolemclearn.com/2017/07/pe ... ly-28.html
