    Just wondering if someone could post the results and perhaps some comments on the recent competition at AJX. I’m sure many are curious. Thanks in advance for whoever responds.

    A springtime regular, Catalina Eddy, showed up and stole the show.

    I thought the Crestline XC Classic was tremendously fun this year and I got the same feedback from nearly all of the competitors that I spoke to after the awards ceremony on Monday. The weather certainly was a challenge but that’s part of the fun. In competition flying you don’t get to wait for the best day, you have to figure out how to exploit the weather you get.

    Competitions are more than just a race. We had visiting pilots from across Southern California and from as far away as Colorado. This years competitors turned out to be both talented and a blast to get to know and hang out with (pun intended). Most of the out of town pilots came without securing a retrieve but that was not a problem as we all pitched in to help each other.

    On top of that, we had two outstanding and eclectic bands. Saturday night at the pond featured a rocking instrumental group, ‘in the background‘, that really amped up the vibe and left everyone feeling excited. If that wasn’t enough CSS’ own Corey Gemme and his band mates gave us some laid back, old school jazz that I could listen to all afternoon. Did I say could? I did listen all afternoon.

    The Crestline XC Classic was awesome and I can’t wait to do it again.
