A entry fee of $25-50 is required to participate and you must also have paid your 2021 SGC Membership Dues. The entry fee will be used to pay for tow pilot hotel rooms, entrant plaques and prizes.
The theme of the Dust Up this year is return to Cross-Country Soaring. There will be plaques awarded in three categories- three day total of OLC-Plus, three day total of OLC-Speed and most altitude gained on a single flight. There will also be a daily prize drawing at the briefing. (Must be present to win.) Along with prizes for runner-up positions.
Pilots of all levels of experience will find an activity to challenge themselves with:
The possibility of dual/mentor cross-country flights depending on COVID guidelines;
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;
As we do every year, we will hold seminars at the monthly SGC meetings. We will also have mentorship opportunities on-site.
Regardless of your experience-level in contests, the Dust Up can accommodate YOU!
