I've been reinvigorated by the Australia trip. Even though I had a dismal result, (39th out of 65) I did get to goal & set a PR of 71 miles on the last task. The flying we had this Jan. & Feb. will jump-start my season. I think my Avax XC2 (arrives next week!) will give me the performance to score well if I make good decisions in the upcoming XC season. . .
I'll be flying the West Coast Paragliding Championships in Ruch, Oregon the week of June 8-14, 2008.
I'd LIKE to fly the Rat Race, also at Woodrat Mtn. in Ruch, Oregon the week of July 6-12, 2008; and the Chelan XC Open, in Chelan WA. July 28th-Aug 2nd. I don't have the time off yet for those comps.
I'm also planning to fly the U.S. Nationals in the Owens Valley Sept. 14-20.
In addition, I'll be flying as many of the Northern CA XC League (Jug comps) as I can this summer.

BAPA Comp March 29th and 30th Potato Hill
