The Pacific Soaring Council's 2015 Seminar and Awards Banquet was held Sunday, November 15th at the beautiful Sequoyah Country Club in Oakland, California.
This year's focus on cross-country soaring created a stimulating discussion, as well as useful information and a great opportunity to catch up with other pilots from around the region. Our dinner presentation was by noted racing pilot Justin Philipson.

This year we had something new, a no-cost raffle for the chance to win a cross-country flight mentored by one of our outstanding Region 11 pilots. Attendees received a free raffle ticket on entry to each event, seminar and dinner. That earned a chance to win a mentored flight, including cost of the tow from a few of our regions notable pilots.
These mentored flights are perfect for aspiring XC glider pilots - fly with a Region 11 XC master!
Each location offers a unique opportunity to advance cross-country skills by taking a challenging flight in a high performance glider with an experienced mentor. The sponsors have generously agreed to donate the flight time and the tow to this PASCO initiative. Winners and pilots will co-ordinate to set the date and time of the flight. Watch this website for write-ups of the flights next spring, as part of the deal is that the winner must write a review of what they learned and experienced during the flight.
