The Dust Up 2019 gets bigger! You spoke up and we listened – SGCSF will extend the Dust-Up into an OLC camp for the whole week!!!
The Dust Up will be held at Ephrata airport over Memorial Day Weekend, May 25th – 27th. The OLC Camp will follow, May 28th – June 2nd.
Tows may also be available on Friday, May 25th.
Participation is free and is included with your 2019 SGC Membership.
Payment of SGC Membership Fee, Ephrata Facility Use Fees, Glider Trailer Parking/Tie-down fees and RV Parking fees are required upon registration.
The theme of the Dust Up this year is Intro to Cross-Country Soaring. In addition to this, an informal Enterprise contest will be held for those who have their XC legs and want some challenge.
Come for the Dust Up, stay for the OLC Camp – make it a whole week of prime Washington Cross-Country soaring.
Pilots of all levels of experience will find an activity to challenge themselves with:
A number of two-seat sailplanes with experienced pilots will provide dual cross-country mentoring;
Lead and follow flights will help people break apron strings;
Daily briefing with suggested cross country tasks will help aspiring cross country pilots to push themselves further;
Official observers will help with preparation, paperwork and filing of badges and records;
More experienced pilots can challenge themselves in a friendly, informal Enterprise contest;
As we do every year, we will hold seminars at the monthly SGC meetings, and provide handouts via this website. We will also have mentorship opportunities on-site, and evening learning sessions during the event!
Regardless of your experience-level in contests, the Dust Up can accommodate YOU!
