Month: April 2019

Kanones Updated!

The Kanone and Memorial lists have been updated.  This occurs at the beginning of every month – if I remember (hence the delay this month).

Significant notes:

One flyer earned a Blue Max (16 kanones) – Duke Horn from Texas.  We plan to award this in September at the FAC Outdoor Champs.

One Blue Max shipped to a recipient this month –  Don Smith from California.  Don does not plan to attend any upcoming “big” events, so we shipped it to his squadron leader for presentation.

Three flyers earned their first kanones this past month:

  • Ondrej Mitas
  • Scott Richlen
  • Steven Wrigley

Congratulations to all!

CDs – Outdoor flying season is nearly here – don’t forget to send in those contest reports (you can email results to kanonereport AT gmail.com)

Builders & Flyers – check out your local events – you don’t have to fly to get inspiration.   Look for one near you on the Calendar Page.

See you on the flying field!
