 SAFECON AWARDS – PCIFA Region II Fall 2011

SAFECON is officially over – except for the gettin’ home part…
 

SAFECON is officially over – except for the gettin’ home part…
Tonight’s award ceremony was scary. You never know how you are doing relative to the other teams – even as the winners are announced – because different events are worth different points. As the names were announced for the ground events we did not hear our name very often. However when it came to the flying events, we took more than our share. So as the time came closer for the announcement of the team standings, we held our collective SDCC breaths as the results were revealed.


The point totals were very close, the competition was tough and you could tell there was increased focus and intensity this year. While we worked harder than ever and scored higher than in previous years – so did our competitors! The good news is that our pilots did very well despite our size and funding. We are very proud of our team! 


There were nearly 100 pilot-students competing in this year’s Safety and Flight Evaluation Conference. Next year, the competition will be in Salinas CA, hosted by San Jose State University November 8-13, 2012.   Please pray for our safe return!
